At the rate 25 is selling, Adele could sell water to a well. Nielsen Music indicates that the pop star’s third studio album has sold more than 5 million copies in the United States alone, according to Billboard.
An even more impressive feat for the 27-year-old? The last artist to ship 5 million records in a calendar year was, yes, Adele for 2011’s 21. Eleven albums have hit at least 5 million sales in the U.S. (Taylor Swift makes up three of those, with her self-titled debut, 2008’s Fearless, and, of course, 1989.)
