It's only July 2012, and Adele's '21' is already well on its way to becoming the top-selling album for the second time in a row. '21' was already the top-selling album in 2011 with an astounding number of 5.82 million copies sold. Then, Adele sold around 3.7 million copies this year. What's even more impressive is that the album has also gathered more sales this year than the number two, three, four and five top album sales combined.
The top albums include Lionel Richie's 'Tuskegee,' with 910,000 copies sold. Next is One Direction's 'Up All Night' which sold 899,000 copies, followed by Whitney Houston's 'Greatest Hits' and a pop hits compilation called 'Now That's What I Call Music, Vol. 41.' Although these numbers are impressive, Adele managed to triumph over all of them once again.
Adele has had great success so far with her very popular singles such as "Rolling in the Deep" and "Someone like You" receiving many nominations and awards. On June 29th, 2012, Adele announced that she is pregnant with her first child. Congratulations go out to Adele for all she has accomplished!
