Adele’s ’25’ reaches diamond status with 10M copies sold

NEW YORK, Sept. 28 (UPI) — Adele’s latest album 25 has now reached diamond status, selling 10 million copies in less than a year.

According to Billboard, 25 reached the milestone earlier this month with the songstress receiving a special plaque from the Recording Industry Association of America to celebrate the feat.

The album, released in November of 2015, has stayed a consistent top-seller with hit singles such as “Hello,” “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” and “When We Were Young.”

In comparison, Adele’s previous album 21, released in 2011, is certified diamond with 14 million copies sold while her debut album from 2008, 19, has sold over three million units.

Adele will continue to tour across the United States until Nov. 21 when she wraps up in Phoenix, Ariz.

The 28-year-old last made headlines when she paid tribute to Amy Winehouse on social media during what would have been the late singer’s 33rd birthday.
