Adele’s record-breaking album 21 has reached yet another milestone, claiming 25 million sales worldwide.

The news comes alongside the story yesterday that the Brit singer’s latest LP has surpassed 10 million sales in the US.

The staggering sales of 21 worldwide come as Adele’s latest single Skyfall, for the James Bond film of the same name, passes two million sales worldwide.

Adele’s Live At The Royal Albert Hall DVD has almost sold 3 million worldwide, more than 1 million of which come from the US.

On her home turf in the UK, Adele has sold 4.5 million copies of 21, although the album is finally starting to decline, dropping from the UK Top 30 for the first time at the beginning of the month and from the Top 40 this week.
