The 24-year-old British singer’s album “21” has sold more than 10 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album reached the milestone last week, less than two years after its release.

Adele’s sophomore studio album debuted in 2011 and featured such hits as “Rolling in the Deep,” “Someone Like You” and “Set Fire to the Rain.”
It’s the third album to reach the 10 million mark in 2012. Linkin Park’s “Hybrid Theory” and Usher’s “Confessions” also have sold 10 million copies this year.
Adele won in all six Grammy categories in which she was nominated this year, including album of the year.
Black Keys’ copyright lawsuits settled
The Black Keys told a federal judge that the band has settled copyright infringement lawsuits against Pizza Hut and Home Depot Inc. claiming misuse of their music in commercials.

Attorneys for the band informed a federal judge in Los Angeles of the Pizza Hut settlement Monday. The agreement with Home Depot was reached earlier this month.
