Adele scored a major career WIN the other day that has music execs going NUTS.

 

Rarely, if ever in this day and age, does an album go RIAA certified diamond.  But, Adele smashed that mindset right out of the park as her latest album, 25, sold over 10 MILLION copies!  Within a YEAR!  That's absolutely mind-blowing considering how music sales have slumped over the past decade.

Meanwhile the debut single "Hello" has just been certified 7x platinum.

Her last album, 21, also became certified diamond, but has sold over 31 MILLION copies.  Making her two for two!

She is well on her way of being the best-selling artist of our time.  She could become the best-selling female artist of all time if her next album does just as well as 25. 

Currently, she's behind Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Alanis Morissette, and Shania Twain.  She has a little ways to go before taking on Whitney Houston, though.  But if Adele can crank out a song "I Will Always Love You" worthy, then she definitely has a shot at being #1.
