Adele’s ’21' Has Now Sold Over 9 Million Copies in the US


After Adele's '21' moved another 101,000 copies last week in the lead-up to Mother's Day -- and subsequently moved back up to #2 on the Top 200 chart in the process -- the Grammy-winning LP has now crossed the 9 million mark in sales here in the States. The London songstress' sophomore effort also racked up its 64th week inside the Top 10 this week, and is now tied with Paula Abdul's 1988 release 'Forever Your Girl' for the second-longest run in the upper-most tier of the chart among albums by women. The longest stretch for a female in the Top 10 was achieved by Alanis Morissette, who notched 72 weeks with 1995's 'Jagged Little Pill.' Billboard notes that, at 109 weeks, 1965's 'The Sound Of Music' soundtrack has spent the most time in the Top 10. Talk about climbing every mountain. Ba-da-boom-TSCH!

Its too bad that Adele is such a snotty bitch. She has such a great talent, it's really sad that she finds it necessary to act like she does.

Adele is a wonderful talent, I hope to hear more from her in the future. 21 is a fantastic album.
