Elite 50 Artists Week Ending 11/26/15

Adele makes even superstars like Justin Bieber look like afterthoughts, with nearly 3.5 million total sales after the release of her much-anticipated 25 album.  In album sales, she handily beats the remaining combined Elite 50 for the week — in fact, nearly triples the rest of the field.
