Adele named best selling artist for 2015

The records just keep on coming for Adele!

The British songstress has been named as the highest selling artist of 2015, a genuinely impressive feat considering the fact the her album, 25, only dropped in November last year.

Adele, whose Hello video recently reached 1 billion views in only 87 days, was revealed as the highest selling artist of 2015 by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) based on worldwide album sales.

Adele replaces Taylor Swift, whose album 1989 saw her capture the top spot in 2014. Fellow British singer, Ed Sheeran is the second highest selling artist of 2015, with Swift coming in third.
