Adele’s “21” has become the first album to sell over 3 million copies digitally.

Released in 2011, the album topped America’s end-of-year sales charts that year and the following year and it was the 21st bestseller in 2013.

It also became the 21st album to sell more than 10 million copies in the U.S.

The “Someone Like You” singer and her producer Paul Epworth are reportedly at work on the album’s follow-up after Adele took time away from the spotlight to become a mom.

He told his father the drawing was of Lucy in the sky with diamonds.
