Coldplay And Adele Fight For UK Album Chart Number One Spot | Music News
As reported by NME, Coldplay and Adele, are fighting for the number one position in this week UK Official Album Chart. After releasing their seventh album A Head Full of Dreams on December 4, British band Coldplay has since been on course to dethrone Adele‘s third album 25 from the top position on the Official UK Album Charts, but we will see the final results only on Friday.
Although with 159,341 copies sold in the UK, Coldplay have almost outsold the first full-week sales of their previous album Ghost Stories (168,048 copies during debut week, May 2014) and despite their chance to land the top position, they are still very far from the extraordinary records that 25 has broken in just two weeks from its release.
Indeed, Adele‘s third album, published on the 20th of November, has sold 800,307 copies in its debut week and another 439,337 in its second week, only in the UK, and, even more impressively, it closed its first week in the US with 3.48 million copies sold and broke the record again, when it sold another 1.11 million in its second week, becoming the first album to sell a million copies in two different weeks (at least, since they started keeping records of sales in 1991).
Nevertheless, with these numbers made, we don’t think neither Coldplay members nor Adele are too worried about chart performance today.
