November has almost ended in such a hasty manner, leaving fans of December little or no choice to prepare for the festive session.

This year, Adele did better than everyone who sold an album. Adele sold three times faster than Justin Bieber at number two.

By comparison to last year’s fastest seller from Taylor Swift, Adele’s ’25’ has outsold Swift’s ‘1989’ first 10 days two to one.

Only 15 albums sold more than 10,000 copies in the first week so far during 2015. As a guess, there will probably be one more to add with the new Coldplay album ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ coming out on Friday.
