Adele has topped the iTunes song and album charts in the US for 2011.

The award-winning British singer dominated music this year and was named ITunes top artist after her album 21 proved the best-selling album and her number one hit Rolling in the Deep was named the top-selling song.

Sigh No More by Mumford & Sons came second in the iTunes best-selling album of 2011 chart, followed by Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV, Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch the Throne was fourth and Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto was number five.

LMFAO's Party Rock Anthem was the number two top-selling song, followed by Katy Perry's Firework, Bruno Mars' Grenade and Cee Lo Green's Forget You rounded off the top five.

Earlier this week Adele's album 21 was named the biggest-selling album of the century.

The 23-year-old had said she was left "lost for words" after being nominated for six Grammy awards last week.
