Congratulations are in order for singer Adele, as her album 25 is now officially diamond certified.

For those who don't know, that means that Adele's record has now surpassed 10 MILLION sales over in America. Impressive, right?!

Err yes - especially as 25 only came out in November last year.

25 was Adele's comeback record, after she decided to take a break from recording and keep a low profile following the birth of her son Angelo in 2013 with partner Simon Konecki. She explained her absence, following the release of her number one single 'Hello', and told fans at the time: "Sorry it took so long, but you know, life happened."

She then followed that with her album and at the time of 25's release, Adele admitted it had been "a long time coming."

It includes tracks 'Send My Love (To Your New Lover)' and 'When We Were Young' and 25 made chart history, as it became the fastest-selling album of all time, selling more than 800,000 copies in its first week of release - the highest EVER figure for a single UK chart week.

This isn't the first time that Adele has achieved diamond status, though, as her album 21 (released back in 2011) also has it.

According to The Independent, she joins the likes of Britney Spears and Celine Dion in the history books, who also have two diamond certified albums to their names.
