Los Angeles - Adele's album 25 is the best-selling record in America since her previous record 21.

The Hello singer's comeback album sold 5.98 million in its first four weeks of sales, beating Taylor's Swift's 1989, which sold 5.7 million.

However, Adele has yet to beat her own record for 21, with an incredible 11.37 million sales.

Meanwhile, Adele - who will embark on a tour in support of 25 next year - has admitted she is already thinking about her next album and wants it to feature a duet.

The 27-year-old singing superstar reportedly turned down the chance to collaborate with Beyoncé on her new record 25 but she has rubbished the claims stating that apart from her three-year-old son Angelo, Beyoncé is her "main priority".

Asked about claims that she declined Beyoncé's duet, she she told Time magazine: "Whoever started that must have been having a laugh because anyone who knows me knows that my main priority in life outside of my child is Beyoncé.

"I really wanted to do a duet on this album. I spoke to someone about it who I wanted to do it with, and we got on like a house on fire, and then we just couldn't logistically really get it to work. I can't say who it is because I want to do it in the future. That's the only reason. It wasn't Beyoncé!"
