Adele’s reign continues. The “Hello” singer spent her second week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, with 1.16 million albums sold in the U.S. the week ending Dec. 3. That made Adele the first artist to top the 1 million mark in two different weeks since Nielsen began tracking sales data in 1991.

Billboard suggests 25 could sell more than 7 million copies in the U.S. before the calendar flips to 2016.

The British singer-songwriter also added another record to her long list of achievements when her BBC One sketch in which she went undercover as an Adele impersonator became the network’s most viewed video on its YouTube channel. The video logged over 38 million views since BBC shared the clip on Nov. 20.

Adele’s 25 sold 2.3 million copies in its first week out, breaking the single-week sales record, which was previously held by *NSYNC for 2000’s No Strings Attached.
