After making history by becoming the fastest-selling album in a single week, Nielsen also confirmed that 25 is the only album since they began tracking sales in 1991 to sell at least 1 million copies in two separate weeks. The album also set a new one-week record in Canada the last week of November, which was previously set by Celine Dion's Let's Talk About Love in 1997.
