Adele has been breaking records in her career multiple times. And it is surprising and a big deal for all of us for females to reach the same lengths as males. However, it is very possible as Adele’s “21” outlives most of the 2010s hits. 

“21” won’t go and is the one and only female record yet to make it for ten long years in the Billboard 200 charts. The hitmaker is no doubt still on music bliss as her latest album “30” tops the billboard for four successive weeks, and yet there’s another achievement to celebrate. 

The singer’s highly-esteemed 2011 release, “21”, has ultimately set foot on its 120th month on Billboard 200, making its 10-year mark.

Although “21” is not the only record to hit this difficult-to-achieve mark, Adele has set another milestone that no other female artist has accomplished. Currently, she has had an album lingering on the rolls of the most-consumed EPs and full-lengths for a whole decade. 

“21” was a pure hit. To name a few of its accomplishments: it is the best-selling album of 2011 and the best-selling album two years in a row. People from around the world loved the album so much that there’s no known place where you cannot hear any one of the songs in the album. 

More than 4 million copies of the record were sold two years in a row, which has been rare in decades. It hasn’t been achieved since Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” in 1983 and 1984.  

“21” is simply one of the all-time best-selling albums and is the best-selling album of the 21st century with more than 31 millions of copies sold globally. 

The unprecedented album aided Adele to become the first female to hold titles for three albums concurrently existing in the top 10 of Billboard 100 as a solo artist.
