Adele tops One Direction. So to speak.

Thursday, June 6, 2013


ADELE, currently laying low somewhere in the English countryside with her new tot and boyfriend Simon Konecki, has another reason to celebrate. She has the biggest selling album in the world. Again.

It’s the second year running her album 21 has topped the global charts, selling 4.4 million copies in the US alone this year. Last year Americans bought 5.8 million copies of the thing. Kerching.

And coming up the rear (who said that?) are One Direction, who are at number 3 and 4 in the rankings, with Up All Night and Take Me Home respectively.

Rod Stewart‘s album Merry Christmas Baby is 2012′s eighth biggest selling album, which just goes to prove people really will buy any old crap.

Segue: Susan Boyle‘s I Dreamed A Dream was the biggest selling album in the world in 2009. We refer you to our previous statement.
