Adele has taken another step forward in solidifying herself fas a pop superstar. Adele's newest album, "25" has already sold more than 2.3 million copies in the US alone during the first 3 days on the market, according to the Daily Mail. This number is absolutely stunning in an industry where sales numbers have been falling considerably.

In reference, Taylor Swift's "1989," Drake's "If You're Reading This It's Too Late," and Ed Sheeran's "x'' were much lauded by industry vets as some of the biggest releases we are likely to ever see again - and they all barely broke 1 million in sales for the first week and then petered off after that.

Adele is on track to break the one-week record that was set all the way back in 2000 by 'Nsync's "No Strings Attached." Still, it comes as a shock to people who thought that the record sales industry was dead:

"There isn't anybody that I've talked to in the music business who hasn't been astonished by these numbers," said Dave Bakula, senior vice president for industry insights at Nielsen.

Adele's last album, "21" in 2011, has sold just over 11 million copies in the United States. Since Adele hasn't released an album since that time, it is likely that the hype has helped her sales. Still, the woman's voice sells for itself and her deeply emotional lyrics have a way of connecting with many people.

Her album, which features songs that are different in nature from what some people might have expected of Adele while still having her core vocals, has been receiving near unanimous praise from critic.
