For the second year in a row Adele's 21 topped 2012 global album sales with an impressive total of 8.3 million copies, beating out Taylor Swift's Red (5.2 million copies globally) and two One Direction albums.

After winning an Oscar for "Best Song" last weekend, Adele is at the top of her game. We know most of you SodaHeads love her, but how many of you actually own 21? Did you contribute to her album sales?

EONLINE.COM reports:
As if winning an Oscar wasn't enough, Adele can also lay claim to the fact that her 21 sold more worldwide than any other album in 2012. (By the way, 21 did the same thing in 2011, the year it was released.)

    Yes, but I have never listened to the whole thing, ever. She's too overused. I can't bring myself to listen to her. Hopefully one day I will.

    Honestly not that huge of an Adele fan. I can feel the raw emotion in what she sings but I don't think that her writing is on point. Of course, that's my personal opinion. I'm sure I'm in the minority and many people admire her way of wording. :)

    The best selling album of all time was heard by less than 1% of the world population. Adele has made a temporary dent, but she had yet to do anything likely to be remembered in a few years.

    For the record, I wasn't speaking to the quality of her music, only that she has yet to really make her mark in musical history (if she even ever does).

    Only because my sister bought it for my eighteenth birthday. I think she wanted to me to keep up with popular music culture, and felt it her eldest sister duty to help me in such a matter. haha I listen to a wide range of music, but generally songs of which date much older than Adele. :)

    This is a very good CD. Hopefully those making derogatory comments have actually listened to the music before making stupid comments.

    Considering how many people have answered "no" it might open up questions about music piracy. For me, it opens up questions about shenanigans regarding who comes up with these figures.

    However, my wife did get Susan Boyle's CD, Standing Ovation, and since Susan and Adele are both from Scotland, we definitely support our Scottish sisters!

    Oy. *Sigh*

    I've already ranted about this, so I'll keep it simple. I don't think she's as talented as people like to pretend. Having a great voice and knowing how to use it are two vital elements of it, and she, unfortunately, only fits one of those two bills.

    I blame producers, record execs, and the music industry in general.

    Today, of course.

    Kind of like a kid scoring straight A's in a special ed class.
