According to the Recording Industry Association Of America (RIAA) the ace British singer’s album ‘25’ hit the 10 million sales mark in the U.S. alone following its release in November 2015.

The album’s lead single ‘Hello‘ has also been certified as seven-time Platinum.

The lead single Hello, which is already seven-times platinum, helped pushed Adele to another career pinnacle that most superstars can only dream and fantasize about.

Adele previously went Diamond states-wide with her 2011 album ’21’ in November 2012, nearly two years after its January 2011 release, while her debut album ’19’ was certified as triple Platinum.

Other albums to attain Diamond status include Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’, Billy Joel’s ‘Greatest Hits Volume I & Volume II’ and Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall’.
