Adele's eagerly awaited album 25 has fans – and all of Twitter – completely in their feelings
It is officially Adele day.
Billboard previously reported that 3.6 million physical copies of the album would ship to the U.S., possibly marking the largest number of new-release CDs shipped in the last decade.
Total CD and digital sales as well as downloads for the album are expected to reach more than 3 million in the first week, Billboard reports. Amazon pre-orders for the album surpassed 100,000 for both digital downloads and CDs.
The songstress recently made a triumphant return to the live stage, bringing down the house at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on Tuesday. The concert will be broadcast as a one-hour special, Adele Live in New York City, Dec. 14 on NBC.
On Friday, an hour-long special titled Adele at The BBC will be broadcast in the UK and the 27-year-old is set to perform on Saturday Night Live on Saturday.”
Twitter is definitely into the new album – and its feelings – as the #Adele25 hashtag is riddled with fans noting their first CD purchase in years, sad gifs, heartbreaking lyrics and track favorites.
The “Hello” singer uploaded a thankful post to Twitter, writing “I am so overwhelmed and grateful to be able to even put another record out, and put it out how I want.”
Naturally, the singer signed off with, “see you on the other side … love adele X.”
