’21’ turns 10: See how Adele fans are celebrating the iconic album
“Rumour Has It” that Adele’s album, 21, has just turned ten years old! Twitter and the rest of social media are bringing back Adele’s greatest hits.
Grammy award winner Adele released her legendary album, 21, back in 2011. According to Grammy, the English singer released hit songs like “Rumour Has It” & “Rolling In The Deep” brought at least 5.82 million copies sold in 2011 and 4.41 million in 2012 which topped the U.S. sales charts both years running.
Billboard confirmed that Adele’s 21 was the twenty-first album in the “SoundScan era” to actually sell over 10 million copies. In fact, the album became so huge, it also debuted as No.1 on Billboard’s 200 chart in March 2011, and it hasn’t left their weekly charts since.
Adele’s 21 was also an iconic moment for all artists in the music industry. The year after Adele’s album was released was also the year music was highly downloadable. Billboard reported 21’s “Rolling in the Deep” also broke the record for biggest song of 2012, with over 5.8 million downloads. It was the biggest selling song of the year. Even LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” couldn’t come close to Adele, with only 5.4 million downloads.
With Adele’s last album released such a long time ago, Twitter has gone wild with their celebratory questions & dance moves.

I'm listening to @Adele's 21 in honor of it's 10 year anniversary and I legitimately feel blessed live in a time when she's been making music. We're the same age, so her albums often correspond to profound moments in my life. pic.twitter.com/aYdoyND2tH

Tired of listening to Adele’s 21? Maybe this ceiling fan idea will get you a private show of Adele’s new work.
This interviewer perfectly captures why Adele & 21 connected with so many people on such level.
