Already the biggest pop star on the planet, 2015 saw Adele become even more stratospheric. First, the Londoner’s third album, 25, became the fastest-selling record ever; then came the announcement of her first US tour in four years. All 750,000 tickets, across 54 dates, sold out in minutes. More than 10 million people tried to buy one. Taylor who?
This week her single Hello was finally knocked off the top of the Billboard Pop Songs chart after four weeks at number one.
But it doesn’t seem to be affecting sales of Adele’s album, as 25 is about to set yet another world record.
As reported by Billboard, the 27-year-old singer’s album is set to sell a million copies for a third non-consecutive week.
Fans of “The Hunger Games” are still filling up on the final film in the series.
For the third weekend in a row, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2” is the number-one movie at the box office. It earned an estimated $18.6 million, pushing its domestic gross to date to $227 million.
The horror-comedy “Krampus” opened in second place, collecting $16 million.
“The Letters,” a film on Mother Teresa that debuted in about 900 theaters, finished outside the top 10.
