Adele's new album 25 is No.1 on iTunes in almost every country in the world

Map of Adele's No1 positions
We're deep into the territory of Adele fever now; the world's fallen at the singer's feet upon the release of her album, 25. 

A new map on Digital Spy illustrates exactly what a global success the album has become, with it currently sitting at #1 on the iTunes charts of 110 countries. For context, iTunes is available in 119 countries; the only places Adele's album isn't a chart-topper on the service include Kyrgyzstan, Niger, Anguilla, and Burkina-Faso. 

The record has beat Beyoncé's previously held title as the fastest-selling album on iTunes, selling over 900,000 copies on its first day of release; Beyoncé's self-titled hit comparatively sold 617,000 over the span of three days. 

Released on 20 November, 25's sales have been breaking records on all fronts. In the UK, the album is close to surpassing Oasis' Be Here Now to become the fastest-selling album in the UK, having sold 300,000 copies on its first day of release. It's already broken that record in the US, previously held by *NSYNC's No Strings Attached, which sold 2.4 million copies in its first week.
