Adele's "21" Turns 10 and 25...MILLION, THAT IS
Adele's critically acclaimed sophomore album 21 has reached
yet another momentous milestone this week, surpassing 10 million albums
sold in the U.S. This sales achievement earns Adele, and 21,
Diamond Certification by the RIAA. Adele is the only British or
European female artist in history to earn this certification. 21 also has the
distinction of being the only single disc released over the last decade
to reach Diamond Certification in less than 2 years (a feat which hasn't
happened since 2000). "What an incredible honour," Adele exclaimed, "a
huge, huge thank you to my American fans for embracing this record on
such a massive level."21has achieved global success with 25 million albums sold worldwide. In her native UK, 21 has sold an incredible 4.5 million copies. Adele's latest single "Skyfall" is the official theme song to the 007 feature film Skyfall™. Released last month on the 50th anniversary of the legendary film franchise, "Skyfall"
has sold over 2 million copies worldwide, and the film has gone on to
generate the biggest opening ever for a 007 movie. This week Adele Live
At Royal Albert Hall DVD surpasses 1 million copies sold in the U.S.,
with nearly 3 million copies sold worldwide. The last time a music DVD
sold 1 million copies in a single year was 2005.
