Physical Singles Sales
Well, if there is one area where Adele hasn’t dominated, this is physical single sales. With the last few consumers giving up the format in late 00s and her success being limited by this point, her 19 singles accumulated low sales on the format. By 2011, most markets had completely stopped releasing such discs. Only Japan still had notable physical single sales, but this country is the only one that pretty much resisted to Adele earthquake.
All in all, the few sales here and there will bring 100,000 singles sales to each 19 and 21 albums.
As a reminder, the weighting is done with a 10 to 3 ratio between one album and one physical single.
