Just one week after Eminem’s Recovery became the first album to sell 1 million digital copies, Adele’s 21 has surpassed the milestone and is now the biggest-selling digital album in history. Digital sales of 21 exceed 1.017 million (out of 2.6 million total), compared with Recovery‘s 1.005 million (out of 3.9 million).
