Sam Smith’s In The Lonely Hour was the biggest debut album of the decade

According to Official Charts, Smith had the biggest debut album of the 2010s. The singer’s The Lonely Hour project was released back in 2014 and according to the site “sold 101,700 copies in its first week on sale, broke the record for most consecutive weeks in the Top 10 for a debut album – spending 69 weeks there from its initial debut in June 2014 – and now has 2.59 million combined sales under its belt.” That’s a pretty stunning amount of sales. You’ll also recall that before debuting, Smith had become known for soulful covers of R&B classics as well as features on songs by artists like Disclosure.
