This week Adele Live At Royal Albert Hall DVD surpasses 1 million copies sold in the U.S., with nearly 3 million copies sold worldwide. The last time a music DVD sold 1 million copies in a single year was 2005.
Adele’s Live At The Royal Albert Hall returns to #1 on Top Music Videos, displacing Eagles’ Farewell I Tour: Live From Melbourne. This is its 27th week on top.
"'I Will Be' is a song I have known for a while… From the outside looking in I know that everyone was fighting for Avril to put this on her record but for reasons I will not disclose, Avril, did not... I remember Luke playing this song for me months ago and I was at the point of tears knowing I heard a song that would be the hugest thing ever… I mean, people, be prepared to hear this song at EVERY WEDDING for a LONG time."
Adele's Live At The Royal Albert Hall is #1 on Top Music Videos for the 14th straight week. This is the longest run at #1 since Michael Jackson's Number Ones was #1 for 14 weeks (one week in 2004 and 13 weeks following his death in 2009). It's the longest continuous run at #1 since Collision Course by Jay-Z/Linkin Park was #1 for 17 straight weeks in 2004-2005. Adele's DVD sold 27K copies this week, bringing its total to 707K.
