Looks like diamonds really are a girl’s best friend. Adele has got another baby to be proud of…her music!
Since the 2011 launch of her sophomore album “21,” Adele has achieved the next greatest accomplishment after motherhood. The British singer has officially joined the “diamond club,” with over 10 million copies sold in just the United States alone!
Ironically, “21” is the 21st album to reach this level, and the 8th to sell 10 million copies in under 2 years!
Adele joins the elite club with fellow divas Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, as well as their latest member, Usher.
In a statement, Adele called this “an incredible honor” and thanked her American fans, who brought this album to such a “massive level.”
After sweeping this year’s Grammy’s with wins in Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year, and Album Of The Year, as well as welcoming her first son, Adele has been living on cloud nine. As 2012 comes to an end, this achievement was the icing on top of a great year, one which could only lead her to (if it’s possible) bigger and better things.
