Adele Over Takes Pink Floyd In Album Sales

Adele has overtaken Pink Floyd in the UK's all-time biggest selling albums list, according to the Official Charts Company.

The singer has just over-taken The Dark Side Of The Moon with her second album, 21, which was released in 2011. This massive leapfrog comes just three weeks after it was announced that Adele had surpassed Michael Jackson's sales for Bad.

Having sold over 4.14million copies in the UK, 21 is now the seventh highest selling album of all-time. Adele is also close to over-taking Dire Straits, who sit in the 6th spot with Brothers In Arms, needing to sell just 12,000 more copies. According to the Official Charts Company, the singer could achieve this by the end of the week.

  • Queen - Greatest Hits
  • The Beatles - Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
  • ABBA - Gold
  • Oasis - (What's The Story) Morning Glory?
