Adele has broken a record in the US by becoming the first artist to pass the three million mark in digital sales.

The Someone Like You singer released her second album 21 in 2011, but it is still selling well and has been bought as a download over three million times in the US, making her the first artist to reach the landmark in American sales, according to Rolling Stone.

Including hard copies, 21 has achieved sales of more than 10 million in the US alone, and worldwide it has shifted around 25 million copies.

It was the best-selling US album of both 2011 and 2012, the only one to have reigned for two years straight, and was the 21st best-selling album in America in 2013.

Adele is currently working on her third album, which is expected to be released later this year.
