Adele is celebrating the mega success of her new album, “21” with a new milestone, surpassing 10 million copies sold in the USA.
The album was released in 2011 and has earned six Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year, and Record and Song of the Year.
The record has also been a permanent fixture on the Billboard 200 chart since it debuted at number 1 back in February of 2011, and passed the 10 million mark this month according to Neilsen SoundScan figures.
Linkin Park’s debut album, and Usher’s ‘Confessions’ also passed the 10 million mark this year, but they hit the shelves in 2000, and 2004. Only 21 albums have passed this mark since the figures started being counted in 1991.
