Adele's '21' hits 10 million sales in the US
Adele's monolithic album '21' has passed the 10 million sales barrier in the US.
The hugely successful record, which was released in February 2011 in America, has now sold 10,020,000 units in the country.
It is the 21st release to hit 10 million sales since Nielsen SoundScan began collating chart data in 1991.
Back home in the UK, meanwhile, '21' has dropped out of the UK Top 40 for the first time since its release in January 2011.
At 4.5 million units shifted, the record is currently the fifth best selling album ever in the UK, with the album enjoying 71 consecutive weeks in the top ten.
