Adele is officially the first artist in history to go double platinum on iTunes: “21″ has over 2 million downloads to its credit and is certified 7x Platinum in the U.S.

A post on the Columbia Records Tumblr also adds that the album’s 21 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart make it the longest-running female album at the top spot in Billboard history.

Adele has had quite a year, and it’s only February. At the Grammys, she took home six awards, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Album of the Year. Following the Grammy Awards, her 2009 album “19″ returned to prominence, selling some 87,000 copies this week.

Do you think Adele’s musical domination can continue at this clip for the rest of 2012?
