In its first three days of release, Adele’s 25 has already sold at least 2.3 million in pure album sales in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music.

And, at the present (Nov. 23), industry forecasters suggest the album could finish the week with 2.9 million sold.

Thus, 25 is already only the second album to sell more than 2 million copies in a single week since Nielsen Music began tracking sales in 1991. Further, by the end of the day Monday, it should surpass the single-week sales record, currently held by *NSYNC’s No Strings Attached, which debuted with 2,416,000 sold in the week ending March 26, 2000.

25 was released on Nov. 20 through XL/Columbia Records. It’s Adele’s third studio album.

Nielsen Music’s tracking week runs Friday through Thursday each week, so 25‘s first week will conclude on Nov. 26. Billboard is scheduled to report 25‘s debut week sales on Sunday, Nov. 29, once Nielsen has finished processing its weekly data.
