Adele Makes Music History

Adele’s “21” LP is Still Breaking Music Sales Records

Three years after it’s release, “21” continues to achieve unprecedented success. Per Rolling, it is now the first digital album in music history to ever sell over three million copies. The record certainly did quite well in 2013 as the 21st most sought after album of the year. When considering all of the new music released since January of last year, that is quite a boast.  What’s next? “Rumor Has It” that the new Mom will have another album out later this year.

 Listen to music from “21” with your library card, courtesy of your Freegal Member Library.
