Adele’s “25” Has Gone Diamond in Less Than a Year

At a time when album sales are less and less of a factor, you can still count on ADELE.  Or at least her record label can.

Her latest album “25” has gone DIAMOND . . . meaning it’s sold 10 MILLION copies.  And that’s in less than a year, people.  It came out last November.  Her “21” album went diamond in two years.

Adele is the only artist this decade to have two diamond certified albums, and she’s the first woman to have two since BRITNEY SPEARS did it with “Baby One More Time” and “Oops I Did It Again”.  Those came out in 1999 and 2000, respectively.
