Adele is still breaking records with her smash hit album '21' which has just been crowned the biggest selling album on Amazon.com of all time, beating the likes of Taylor Swift, Coldplay and Mumford & Sons.

The 'Rolling In The Deep' singer is just one of many British artists who have been included in the top 10 compiled by Amazon.com but Adele has triumphed above them all with her second studio album, '21,' which was released in 2011 and has been certified platinum 16 times in the UK and achieved diamond status in the US after selling an astonishing 28 million copies worldwide.
