Default Adele's album 21 is now DIAMOND!!!

Quote:
Adele named her sophomore album "21" after her age at the time she was recording it. This week, the title takes on new significance, as "21" becomes the 21st album in the history of Nielsen SoundScan to sell 10 million copies.

In the era where piracy is all over the place, this is quite a big feat.

I wonder what's the appeal in her. She sounds just like a bunch of black female singers throughout history. The music isn't groundbreaking or any different than what's been heard. Another benefit of being white i guess.

I guess Nielsen is going by their own methods in album counting though.
