How long will Adele's success last? Well her acclaimed album '21' has now passed the 9 million sales mark in the US.
'21' has now sold a further 101,000 copies for the week ending May 13, according to Nielsen SoundScan data.
Mother's Day certainly was a good day for the London singer as she experienced a 31% sales gain over the past week.
'21' has so far spent 23 weeks at the top of the US album chart in total. It will hit RIAA diamond sales status if it passes the 10 million mark.
The album recently became the fifth best-selling album in UK chart history, taking over Michael Jackson's classic 'Thriller' in the process. Her record label also announced plans to re-release '21' with additional new tracks in time for Christmas
