If ever statistics told the story, this is it.
The world cannot get enough of Adele. And it cannot run fast enough from classical records.
The week’s top US seller, according to Nielsen Soundscan, was the Yo Yo Ma 60th birthday album, with 493 sales in all formats. The next highest, Stile Antico, sold half as many (or as few).
