Adele’s 25 has broken yet another record.

After its record 3.38 million-selling debut week, 25 sold another 1 million copies in the U.S. in its second week — making it the first album in tracking history to sell a million copies in two different weeks.

via Billboard:

25 surpasses the mark with slightly less than one day of data remaining to be processed by Nielsen in the tracking week (ending Dec. 3).

25 became just the 20th album to sell a million copies in a single week (in Nielsen history) when it arrived with 3.38 million sold in the week ending Nov. 26. Until this week, no album had ever sold a million copies in more than one week.

Billboard is scheduled to report 25’s final second-week sales on Sunday, Dec. 6, once Nielsen has finished processing the full week of data.
