Adele’s latest album, titled “30”, is the fastest-selling album of 2021 in the US and the UK.

Released on November 19th, it became the most successful album of the year in the US just three days later, according to CNN.

In the UK, it debuted at the top spot in the albums chart, with first-week sales of 261,000.

“30” however has not quite hit the heights of Adele’s third studio album, called “25”, which became the fastest-selling album of all time in both the US and the UK in 2015 – it sold 800,000 copies in the UK and 3.3 million in the US.

In October, Adele told American Vogue that “30” was her way of explaining her divorce to her son and was very close to her heart.

It is her fourth studio album.

The lead single is “Easy on Me” (see below):
