British singer Adele’s album “30” has rolled towards the biggest opening week for any album in 2021 in the UK.
Pop music fans have enjoyed an array of riches, with blockbuster sets from Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and a reunited ABBA dropping in quick succession.
Adele’s latest album is predicted to likely surpass them all in the U.
Based on midweek data published by the Official Charts Company, 30 is outselling rest of the Top 40 combined.
At the halfway stage, 30 has logged 167,000 U.
chart sales, and is closing in on ABBA’s Voyage, which accumulated a year-best 204,000 chart sales in week one.
As previously reported, 30 is making its presence felt on the Official U.
Singles Chart, with three tracks from it (“Easy On Me,” Oh My God” and “My Little Love”) leading the midweek survey.
If 30 debuts at the top, as expected, it will give Adele chart crowns from all four of her studio albums.
Her 2008 debut 19 spent a week at No.
1, 2011’s 21 spent a whopping 23 frames at the summit, and 2015’s 25 logged 13 weeks at the top.
