Most singers would give a couple teeth for a platinum (sales of 1 million units) album. Diamond (10X platinum) is like the reaching the unreachable star. Adele has just taken her place in musical history. She's done it twice! The independent reports, the Recording Industry Association of America says her third release, "25" has reached the 10X platinum plateau as of Sept. 20th, 2016. Her second release, "21" was certified Diamond in 2011. Only two other women have 2 albums certified Platinum in the US. The other 2 are Britney Spears, and Celine Dion. Adele's comment when asked what she did last weekend?...“Ah, nothing much, just made another historic achievement in the music industry, y’know?”
