As expected, Christmas shoppers were not going to pass up on Adele’s 25. The British singer sold another 1.15 million copies, which pushes her to now having sold 7.13 million in the U.S. alone. This is also her fifth week holding down the No. 1 sport on the Billboard 200 charts.


Coming in behind Adele is Justin Bieber, whose Purpose album sold 229,000 copies last week. Also, Chris Brown pushed through with 184,000 units sold. The ‘Royalty’ release is his largest sales week since his F.A.M.E. album in 2011. It landed at No. 1 with 270,000 copies sold. According to Billboard, Royalty is Brown’s eighth consecutive top 10 album.
