Adele has become the first artist of the decade whose song was sold more than a million copies in the United Kingdom, as per the Official Charts Company. Adele’s latest single track, ‘Someone like you’ took four weeks at No. 1 in February just before returning to the chart for another week in March. However, the popularity of the song has rushed after the Adele’s performance at the Brit Awards in February, this year.

Reportedly, there are only 16 singles that have reached the million sales marks, since 2000. However, the last singles to hit the mark were Black Eyed Peas for ‘I Gotta Feeling’ and ‘Poker Face’ by Lady Gaga, which were released in 2009.

Besides, Will Young’s ‘Anything is Possible/Evergreen’ has sold 1.8 million copies after he has won the Pop Idol in 2002. Young has been in the list of this century’s biggest sellers. The latest album of Adele, ‘21’ has spent 16 weeks at the top position of the Official Albums Chart. But, the album has so far sold 2.6 million copies. In her first album, ‘19’, it has doubled its sales this year with 800,000 copies.

Besides Lady Gaga’s ‘Poker Face’ to top the 1 million sales mark, ‘Someone Like You’ is the first single to reach the mark.
