Adele has been named the UK’s best-selling female album artist of the century!

The announcement was made by The British Phonographic Industry (BPI). This is the group that looks after the British music industry.

Some of Adele’s musical friends also made the rankings – Pink came second, followed by Madonna, Rihanna, Dido and Amy Winehouse in sixth.

The London-born superstar singer also holds the title for the fastest-selling album of all time, for her album 25.

Her track entitled ‘Hello’ became the first track to be downloaded more than one million times in a week in America.

Another Adele fact is that she managed to pick up an Oscar award in 2013 for her song ‘Skyfall’, which was the theme tune for the James Bond film.
