Adele’s new album, which was not made available to stream, is totally and utterly crushing it on the sales front. After only three days, 25 has broken the first week US sales record previously held by *NSYNC with No Strings Attached in 2000. According to Nielsen, Adele has already sold 2,433,000 copies—just think what her first week total is going to be,
Sales aside, Adele has been hitting the promo trail hard, and last night she was on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon for a chat, a game of Box of Lies, and a performance of “Water Under The Bridge.” It’s great to hear her perform one of the more uptempo tracks from the record after leading off with “Hello,” and of course the signature Adele cackle™ was in full effect during the amusing Box of Lies segment.
Adele also revealed that she’s excited for both Rihanna’s new album, which has recently been teased (“I’m the biggest RihRih fan. I love her!”), and the return of Frank Ocean (“I don’t even know where he’s gone.”).
See guys, Adele is just like us. Watch the performance above and the other segments below.
