LONDON, Nov 28, (RTRS): British singer Adele’s “25” notched up the most sales in its opening week of any UK album, beating a record set in 1997 by Oasis, the Official Charts Company said on Friday. The 27-year-old’s third studio album sold 800,307 copies — compared with Oasis’ previous record of 696,000 with “Be Here Now” — and amassed more sales than the last 19 No. 1 albums in Britain combined.

It also became the most downloaded No. 1 album ever, the charts company said. “The statistics surrounding the album are staggering, topped by the simple fact that no album has ever sold 800,000 copies to reach Number 1 in the history of British music,” said Chief Executive Martin Talbot.
