Adele Presented With A Diamond Award From The RIAA Certifying Sales In Excess Of 10 Million Copies Of '21'

NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 21: On Friday June 21 in New York, Adele was presented with a Diamond Award from the RIAA certifying sales in excess of 10 million copies of her sophomore album 21. Adele is the only British or European female artist in history to earn this certification. Adele is also the only British or European artist ever to earn Diamond Certification in less than 2 years from release. 21 also has the distinction of being the only single disc released over the last decade to reach Diamond Certification in less than 2 years (a feat which hasn't happened since 2000). To date Adele's 21 has sold in excess of 25 million albums worldwide. Adele's 21 earned the singer-songwriter a total of 7 Grammy Awards over two years.
