Adele has been revealed as the best selling artist in Amazon's 15 year history, ahead of Coldplay who came second and The Beatles in third in the website's countdown.
Her album, 21, was the best selling album on Amazon ever, while her debut, 19, placed at No.2 on the album list. Meanwhile the James Bond theme tune 'Skyfall' as sung by Adele was beaten to the punch only by Rage Against the Machine's 'Killing In The Name'.
Rage Against the Machine's track achieved high sales when in 2009 a viral campaign to prevent the X Factor from reaching the top spot was mounted.
In a statement Paul Firth head of music at Amazon said: "Adele's achievement in securing both the best-selling artist title and the top two best-selling albums of the past 15 years on Amazon.co.uk is remarkable.
"The fact that Rage Against The Machine's 'Killing In The Name' has pushed Adele into second place in the best-selling singles chart is indicative of how much the UK loves a good campaign and how the public love the underdog."
