The new album “25” by British singer Adele, which includes the popular song “Hello,” sold a record 2.3 million copies in the United States in the first 3 days of its release, Nielsen Music reported on Monday.

The whopping sales mean that Adele will soon break the first-week sales record in the U.S., which is currently held by boy band group Nsync for the song “No strings attached.” That song debuted with sales of 2.4 million copies back in the year 2000.

Billboard says “25” has also racked up more than 900,000 sales in Apple’s U.S. iTunes store. Adele’s independent record label, XL Recordings, previously announced that the album would not be available through online streaming services such as Apple Music, Spotify and Deezer.
