Adele's "21" tops 10 million in sales

It's something that most industry observers thought would never happen again, but Adele's album 21 has topped 10 million in sales, becoming the first album in more than a decade to reach that mark. To give you a sense of how long it has been, the last album to reach that mark was N'Sync's No Strings Attached. N'Sync? Really? Wow, that seems like a lifetime ago.  Not bad for a young artist from the UK whom no one had heard of five years ago.  But with songs like "Rolling In the Deep" and "Someone Like You" and an disc that had no weak spots, Adele gets nothing but praise from us.  And the music industry can also thank her for showing that, when the right album comes out, people still care enough to buy.
