Adele is at the top of the mountain again. After a two-week hiatus, 25 returns to No. 1 for its 10th week on the chart, rising from No. 2 to No. 1.
According to Billboard, the album sold 116, 000 copies this week. 97,000 of those units were pure album sales. It brings the grand total of 25’s overall sales to 7.94 million. It is likely it will reach 8 million sold in the next week.
Adele’s 25 slipped to No. 2 because David Bowie’s final album Blackstar made its debut at No. 1 shortly after his death. The following week, Panic! at the Disco’s Death of a Bachelor was their first No. 1 album of their career.
In other chart moves, Justin Bieber’s Purpose climbs from No. 3 to No. 2 with 87,000 copies sold.
