Adele had biggest selling album in the world in 2015
Adele is being credited with saving the music album industry in one fell swoop.
The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), which represents the interests of the recording industry around the globe, said that Adele’s album “25” sold 17.4 million copies in 2015.
What is really incredible is that she released that album in NOVEMBER. So bascially, she had 2 months to unload that many copies.
What’s more, her album outsold Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, and Sam Smith … put together.
IFPI said Adele had helped reverse “two decades of almost uninterrupted decline” in music albums.
