    Go Adele! The singer's album 21 soared to the #1 position on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart with over 350,000 copies sold this week. To date, Adele's 21 is the biggest selling album of 2011. It's a nice, healthy rebound for the sagging record sales that marked early 2011.

    Adele is set to kick off a sold-out tour of North America on May 12th in Washington, DC. Most dates sold out in minutes with venue upgrades needed in Seattle and Los Angeles as well as an additional date added in New York. Adele is the hottest British export there is right now.
