Adele's "21" Goes Diamond
Mon, 03 Dec 2012 13:41:04
Adele is shining bright like a diamond, to borrow a quote from Rihanna.
The singer's critically acclaimed sophomore album 21 has reached yet another momentous milestone this week, surpassing 10 million albums sold in the U.S. This sales achievement earns Adele, and 21, Diamond Certification by the RIAA. Adele is the only British or European female artist in history to earn this certification. Adele is also the only British or European artist ever to earn Diamond Certification in less than two years from release.
As if that weren't enough, 21 also has the distinction of being the only single disc released over the last decade to reach Diamond Certification in less than two years (a feat which hasn’t happened since 2000). "What an incredible honour," Adele exclaimed. "A huge, huge thank you to my American fans for embracing this record on such a massive level."
Adele, you made an amazing album that the public responded. So no, thank you.
