  • Adele First Artist to Go Double Platinum on iTunes



    Adele can add another achievement to her six Grammies and 21 weeks at the top of the Billboard 100: She’s the first artist to go double-platinum on iTunes.

    Columbia Records announced the accomplishment yesterday in a press release, along with a ton of other Adele related factoids. Adele’s album “21” is the longest running #1 album by any woman in Billboard history with 21 non-consecutive weeks at the top of the charts.

    Adele’s 21 also saw the largest post-Grammy sales surge in history and the largest week-to-week sales jump in history not counting abnormal release practices, selling 730,000 copies the week after record-setting night at the Grammies. Adele has sold 18 million copies worldwide and 7 million copies in the U.S. Adele sold two million digital copies in the same year through iTunes. Not even The Beatles could do that.

    Adele’s strong sales mirror a record-setting year and fourth quarter for iTunes. During Apple’s 4Q iTunes recorded revenue of $1.7 billion likely in part to the introduction of iTunes to many Latin American countries including Brazil.

      Artists like this are rare these days. All too often we get whatever the Disney channel or Nickelodeon throws at us. This woman genuinely has talent, isn't necessarily the sexiest person I have ever seen (sorry, it's true), but is selling albums because she can actually sing, unlike most everyone else out there.

      She is so talented. She deserves all the good fortune. I hated the first major song that hit the radio and was so repeatedly played, what was it...Rollin in the Deep? Yeah, but I heard it a few more times and from then on just enjoyed her music.

      .. If this isn't your type of music you must only listen to scream. I listen to rap often and dubstep but I still love Adele

      Naw, that's pretty racist any way you slice it.

      I thought for sure when I first heard her it was Linda Perry of 4NonBlondes ("what's going on") fame. Almost the same voice.

      Her music sells aren't showing it. Do you know anybody else that went double platinum on iTunes? I think not.
