British singer Adele had the best selling album and single in the US with her album '21', according to figures released by Nielsen SoundScan. Adele sold 5.8m copies of her second album that went on sale in March 2011 - selling 352,000 copies on the first week. The single 'Rolling In The Deep' topped the biggest selling singles chart for the year, also selling 5.8m copies in the US.
