Adele’s ’21’ Is The Top Seller On iTunes For The Second Year In A Row

    Considering 21 continues to dominate the charts, it’s easy to see why Adele is not planning to make a new album anytime soon . For the second straight year 21 was the top-selling album on iTunes. Rounding out the top three were Taylor Swift’s Red and Mumford & Sons Babel. Amazingly, Mumford & Sons also had their 2009 release Sigh No More also make the top 10. 

    While the singles charts had a few hip-hop artists, it’s interesting to see that not a single hip-hop album made the iTunes top 10. As expected the top three selling iTunes singles of 2012 were from Carly Rae Jespen, Gotye, and Fun. [Idolator]
