Adele released her brand new album 30 this month on November 19. The highly anticipated music drop had fans in a frenzy to obtain the record. Up until that point, Drake held the record for the biggest debut of 2021, surpassing Kanye’s Donda. Drake’s album Certified Lover Boy sold 613,000 units in its first week, according to MRC Data. Whereas Adele’s 30 earned over 660,000 units.
30 even blew Taylor Swift’s Red sales of 369,000 albums out of the water. Watch part of Adele’s performance of Easy On Me Live at the NRJ Awards 2021 below.
