As Star Wars: The Force Awakens obliterates movie records (here's a list), Adele's 25 is obliterating music records, moving 7.13 million copies in five weeks. It took 21 52 weeks to sell that many copies. As Billboard reports, the album had its third platinum-selling week, and actually increased sales 46 percent over the previous week, which is crazy. Hello, it's me, the most popular singer on the planet.
