Adele Scores 10 Million US Sales for 21
Her career just keeps getting hotter, and Adele has finally reached the 10 million sales mark for her critically-acclaimed album 21.
The “Rolling in the Deep” songstress’ record is the 21st album to reach the landmark since SoundScan began keeping track back in 1991, and it did so in 92 weeks.
Adele’s 10 million title puts her in the same league with sales busters like NSync, the Backstreet Boys, Alanis Morissette, Shania Twain, Creed, and Santana.
Meanwhile, 21 is the third album to reach 10 million units in 2012, along with Usher’s Confessions and Linkin Park’s Hybrid Theory.
