Adele tops U.S mid-year chart

By Tribute on July 8, 2012 | Leave a Comment

It’s been a successful year for Adele both in her personal and professional life. The British singer has topped airwaves with her romantic songs since her album 21 was released in January 2011. Adele claims the title as U.S.A.’s top-selling album of the year so far and the only album to have sold more than one million units. In 2012 alone, the 24-year-old singer has sold 3,668,000 units, making it over three times more successful than Lionel Richie’s Tuskegee album at 912,000. Her debut album 19 also ranked in at No. 10 on the chart. ~Graeme Mollison
