Forums - Music Discussion - Worldwide Weekly Album Sales Chart: 'Madonna debuts at #1 with 740k, Adele falls to #3'

It's pretty much guaranteed that Adele will have the best selling album of 2012. I think she'll be the first artist to have the same album as the top seller two years in a row.

"The path of the righteous poster is beset on all sides by the inequities of the trollish and the tyranny of flaming men.
Blessed is he, who in the name of decency and good discussion, stays on topic through the valley of cheap shots, for he is truly his forum's keeper and the finder of lost quality.
And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to flame and troll other users.
And you will know my name is the Mod when I lay my banhammer upon thee.

Thanks for updating guiduc, I forgot all about it. Great sales for Adele as always, and surprisingly stable sales for Lana Del Ray. Also, it's weird how these Japanese acts appear which huge sales and then disappear of the charts the following week...

Oh, and Madonnas new album is out in a few weeks. Any predictions about 1st week sales?

"Adele is one of the very few female singers I just don't like. Similar to Taylor Swift, I find her boring. I don't see what is appealing about the music she performs."

Better her then more silly stuff from Lady Gaga.

Wow! Good job FT Island for debuting at #12. ^_^

Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

Apart from her being a fellow Brit and keeping our worldwide music tradition alive, I don't like Adele's music, it's so dull and tedious

But check out a track from my son's band below this post :P

Yeah, next week Adele's 21 will sell ~250k, whereas, Madonna may fall as low as ~180k perhaps. MDNA sold 359k in the US in its first week, and next week it is expected to sell only 40k, representing a 90% decline... Disastrous!
