She’s done it: Adele has officially shattered *NSYNC’s single-week album sales record with her third album, 25, racking up 2.433 million units in slightly more than three days since its release. The record’s on track to cap off at 2.9 million sales in its first week, but its three-day haul is enough to carry it over *NSYNC’s No Strings Attached figures — 2.416 million in one week — in a much shorter span. Final sales figures for 25 will be available (per Billboard) on November 29 once all the tallying is complete.
