Adele's chart reign looks set to continue, as her latest album set a new record in the US, selling more than 2.4 million copies within four days.

The third full-length release from the London-born singer - 25 - has already smashed the record previously set by US boy band *NSync in 2000 with their second album, No Strings Attached.

Nielsen Music reported 25 has shifted 2.433 million albums since Friday, and is on course to beat the 11 million sales achievement of her last album, 21.

It is set to be the UK's fastest-selling album ever, having sold more than half-a-million copies within its first three days, according to figures obtained by the Official Charts Company.
