British singing star Adele Adkins has won the title of the artist with one of the best-selling albums in the United Kingdom during the current century, beating her counterparts such as Pink, Madonna, Rihanna, and others, according to the classification of “The British Bonographic Industry” which represents the British music industry.
According to news websites, her album titled “21” has also been tagged as the number one album in the United Kingdom by a female artist since 2000, after releasing 6 million copies in the United Kingdom alone.
These new numbers came out to coincide with the return of the National Music Album Day scheduled for October 21 to “Celebrate Women in Music” as the theme for 2021.
“We are delighted that National Album Day is back in its fourth edition, highlighting this year the tremendous contribution women are making to the music world,” said Jeff Taylor, CEO of BPI, and Kim Bailey, CEO of the Entertainment Retailers Association. Emphasizing that while developing the ways in which fans of tone and note enjoy music, the album remains central to the artists ‘expression of themselves and fans’ understanding of what it has to say to them. So National Album Day is an opportunity for artists and fans alike to celebrate this beloved art form and remind ourselves of the continuous power of albums to tell stories, influence, and inspire.
