Adele has made history yet again by topping the global album chart with 21 for the second consecutive year.

Just so you know how epic an achievement this is, it is the first time this has happened since records began in 2001.

The album was released in January 2011 and sold 8.3 million copies last year, beating Taylor Swift's Red came second with 5.2 million copies sold.

One Direction also featured in the chart, filling both the third and fourth slots with Up All Night (4.5million) and Take Me Home (4.4million).

Overall music sales rose by 0.3% last year, for the first time since 1999!

Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe was the best-selling single of the year, with 12.5million global sales, followed by Gotye's Somebody That I Used To Know, which sold 11.8million.
