Almost two years after its release, Adele's album "21" is still gaining milestones in the charts.
U.S. iTunes has announced that the star's album was the top selling record of 2012, even beating newer releases such as Taylor Swift's "Red" and Mumford & Sons'"Babel", Gigwise reports.
One Direction's "Take Me Home" and FUN.'s "Some Nights" were the other two albums to round out the top five selling albums of the year.
The list was compiled by iTunes looking at the most downloaded items in their store, with Carly Rae Jepsen's 'Call Me Maybe' managing to be the top-selling song, followed by Gotye's 'Somebody That I Used To Know'.
FUN.'s 'We Are Young', Maroon 5's 'Payphone' and Nicki Minaj's 'Starships' made up the rest of the top five.
"21" was released in February 2011, and has constantly been receiving awards - the singer gained six Grammys this year.
Adele's theme song 'Skyfall' is also holding its own, as it gained Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe nominations this week, becoming a strong contender in the best song category for Hollywood's awards season.
Adele said, "Thank you so much for the honour of being included in something as brilliant as the Golden Globes! Never in a million years did I ever think I'd come close to such a thing!"
