"Adele pulls biggest album sales in 2011 sold 5.28 million copies"Adele has been predicted to have the biggest number in her album sales this year. As predicted, her album ‘21’ has been steadily in good sales number that has come out in last January. Her second studio album ‘21’ has sold a staggering total of 5.28 million copies in the United States, alone.

Apart from this, being the frontrunner of the best seller, the huge number has also made the British pop star, the first musician to ever pass the 5 million mark in a year of sales since Usher did so seven years ago. In 2004, the R&B has sold a grand total of about 7.9 million copies with his fourth studio album ‘Confessions’.

A year ago, Eminem is the one who closed the year in music by selling about 3.4 million copies of his ‘Recovery’. Prior to the Slim Shady, Taylor Swift took the top spot in the year-end album chart by selling 3.2 million of ‘Fearless’. However, the time an album got the best-seller title under the 3 million mark was in 2008 when Lil Wayne’s ‘Tha Carter III’ sold 2.9 million units.

Adele’s position as the strong contender of this year’s best seller is followed by Lady GaGa and Michael Buble. The Mother Monster, Gaga has so far sold 2.03 million of her ‘Born This Way’, where as the pop/jazz crooner has garnered 1.96 million copies of ‘Christmas’.
