The American affinity for British music continued in 2011 with Adele, whose album 21 sold more copies than any other in the USA.
The ?Someone Like You? songstress moved an impressive 5.6 million units to date, more than any other artist since Usher?s 2004 release Confessions.
Even more impressive, Adele?s worldwide sales numbers have topped 15 million copies, making this her most profitable year to date.
Additionally, overall music sales are expected to have grown by 3 percent by the end of the year, a boost the industry needs desperately.
