Wow, when you lot go mad for a British music artist, you don’t mess about, do you?

Adele’s album “21” has been officially named the biggest selling digital album in US chart history with sales in excess of 1 million copies.

The previous record holder was Eminem, whose album “Recovery” has so far sold 1,001,000 in downloads alone. The running total for “21” stands at 1,017,000, and as they say in the record business, it still has legs, so who knows what kind of crazy figures it will wind up selling?

 And the story is true on this side of the pond too. “21” is currently the biggest selling album of the year, according to the Official Charts Company, beating off stiff competition from the likes of Lady Gaga and the Foo Fighters.

Look, even Linkin Park are Adele fans:
