Adele's album '25' is the best-selling record in America since her previous record '21'.
The 'Hello' singer's comeback album sold 5.98 million in its first four weeks of sales, beating Taylor's Swift's '1989', which sold 5.7 million.
However, Adele has yet to beat her own record for '21', with an incredible 11.37 sales.
Meanwhile, Adele - who will embark on a tour in support of '25' next year - has admitted she is already thinking about her next album and wants it to feature a duet.
The 27-year-old singing superstar reportedly turned down the chance to collaborate with Beyoncé on her new record '25' but she has rubbished the claims stating that apart from her three-year-old son Angelo, Beyoncé is her "main priority".
Asked about claims that she declined Beyoncé's duet, she said: "Whoever started that must have been having a laugh because anyone who knows me knows that my main priority in life outside of my child is Beyoncé.
"I really wanted to do a duet on this album. I spoke to someone about it who I wanted to do it with, and we got on like a house on fire, and then we just couldn't logistically really get it to work. I can't say who it is because I want to do it in the future. That's the only reason. It wasn't Beyoncé!"
