This is absolutely MASSIVE - even including the amount of records this masterpiece has already broken!

Adele's incredible second album, 21, has pretty much taken over the world, and now, has surpassed Michael Jackson's Thriller on the UK's biggest selling albums list with 4,274,300 copies sold - 500 more than the late king of pop's 1982 classic!

However, that still only places it at spot 5, behind Oasis' (What's The Story) Morning Glory?, ABBA's Gold, The Beatles with Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club, and at number one with 5.83 million copies sold, Queen's Greatest Hits!

Still - a HUGE accomplishment!

Especially because Thriller dominates that list INTERNATIONALLY!

But hey! It's got about a 30-year head start on our Goddess!

With the way she's been selling, we don't doubt that the album sales will only CONTINUE to climb, gurl!

Congrats, congrats again!

    Well, seeing that Thriller has sold about 30 Million in the U.S. alone, she'll never topple that, but 21 is a great album. I just hope all of this overexposure doesn't kill her like it did Lady GaGa and Beyonce. The only star who has truly been able to stay on the scene, in the limelight, and on the radio non-stop is Rihanna. She has never taken a break other than in 2009, but it does help that her music is diverse and she does have the best catalog in pop music. Adele on the other hand, all of her songs sound so similar, it's no wonder that Rumour Has It has flopped compared to the first three number one singles. She better be writing that next album and not sitting back because you can lose your spot after a year of acclaim (just look at Leona Lewis, she was huge in 2008 but flopped after that here in the U.S.).

    So sick of hearing her songs on the radio. She never does anything but ballads. So boring. She doesn't go out on the stage and bust her ass with dance moves, she stands there and moves her arms around.
