(Newser) – And the top digital album seller of all time is ... Eminem? Lady Gaga? Nope, sorry, it's Adele, the young English singer-songwriter. Adele's sophomore release 21 has now sold 1.017 million online copies, beating out Eminem's 1.005 million for Recovery, reports Hitfix. Even more impressive is how Adele got her numbers—instead of a huge opening weekend like most pop stars, she has been selling strongly but steadily for weeks now, since 21 was released on Feb. 22 in the United States.
