The Official Charts Company in Britain have released their list of the forty biggest selling albums of the decade so far.
There was no doubt that Adele’s 21 would top the list. The album’s sales of 4,751,000 copies is more than twice that of the second place set, Take That’s Progress (2,374,000).
Two artists, Michael Buble and Ed Sheeran, have two albums in the top ten. Overall, One Direction and Olly Murs each have three sets in the top 40 while Buble, Sheeran, Rihanna, Pink, Bruno Mars and Lady Gaga each have two.
Only two other veteran artists make the list, Coldplay at 13 and Bon Jovi at 31.
