Adele Tops 10 Million

Adele’s album “21” has topped the 10 million mark in U.S. sales.  And it did it in less than 2 years, faster than any other album since NSYNC’s “No Strings Attached” hit 10 million in its 43rd week in January 2001.  The last album to sell 10 million copies was Usher’s “Confessions” which came out in 2004.  But it took more than 4 times as long as Adele’s to sell 10 mill.

Check this out.  “21” is the 21st album to sell 10 million copies in the U. S. since Soundscan started keeping track in 1991.  It’s the second by a British artist, following The Beatles’ “1”.
