The record managed to sell 74,029 copies over the past seven days, despite being released in the United States back in February 2011, according to Hits Daily Double.

The 27% increase in sales follows Adele's NBC special, which included an interview with the star and clips from her Live At The Royal Albert Hall DVD.

21 is thought to have surpassed sales of 22 million worldwide since its UK release in January 2011.

The collection has been certified 16 times platinum in the UK, nine times platinum in the US, 13 times platinum in Australia and diamond in Canada.

The US chart feat comes in the same week Adele's 21 fell out of the UK Top 10 for the first time.
