Adele's 21 hits digital milestone

Adele's album 21 has sold three million copies digitally

Adele's album 21 has broken a new record by becoming the first album to be downloaded three million times.

The Rolling In The Deep singer released her second album 21 in 2011 but it is still selling so well that it has become the first to reach the milestone, according to the Daily Mirror.

But the figure doesn't take into consideration physical copies bought, which takes the album's total sales up to 10,798,000.

A further 40,000 sales were made from its vinyl release and Nielsen SoundScan has placed it at number 13 on the list of best-selling albums since 1991.

Oscar-winner Adele is said to be working on her third album at the moment. Her first, titled 19, was released in 2008.
