 Adeles 21 is the best selling album since 2004

Adele’s 21 is not just the best-selling album of 2011, it’s the best-selling album of the last seven years. Having just reached 5.28 million in total sales, the British sensation’s sophomore effort is now the biggest-selling record in the U.S. since Usher moved 8 million copies of Confessions in 2004, according to Billboard.

For point of reference, Lady Gaga’s Born This Way sold 2.03 million units this year and Eminem’s Recovery was top-seller in 2010 with 3.42 million. Mother Monster may have beaten Adele this year in touring revenue (duh), but absolutely no one is touching her on the charts.

Below, you can watch the video for Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”, which was our 37th best song of 2011. 21 came in at #34 on our best albums list.
