Adele album ‘21’ is the best-selling album of 2011, with a final tally of 5.82 million copies, and ‘Rolling in the Deep’ was the year’s bestselling song with 5.81 million copies, according to Billboard. However, Adele’s album has not dropped out of the Top 10 ever since it entered the chart at No. 1 in February. This is now the nation’s best selling alum with 14th non-consecutive week.

Although the number of copies sold out is considerably small, and it is still large compared to the album sales pulled by the champion of the chart on the same first week of January last year. A year ago, Taylor Swift bounced back to the first spot. The country music star reclaimed the crown by shifting only 77.000 copies of her album ‘Speak Now’.

Michael Bublé’s latecomer holiday entry ‘Christmas’ was the No. 2 selling album of the year with nearly 2.5 million copies, followed by Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ (2.1 million), Lil Wayne’s ‘Tha Carter IV’(1.9 million) and Jason Aldean’s ‘My Kinda Party’ (1.6 million).

The top 5-selling digital songs behind ‘Rolling In the Deep’ are LMFAO’s ‘Party Rock Anthem’ (5.5 million), Katy Perry’s ‘E.T.’ (4.8 million), Maroon 5’s ‘Moves Like Jagger’ (4.1 million) and Pitbull’s ‘Give Me Everything’ (3.9 million).
