National Album Day 2021: Adele named the UK's Official best-selling female album artist of the 21st century
08 March 2021 | By Helen Ainsley

National Album Day has announced its theme for 2021 as Celebrating Women in Music.

Taking place on Saturday, October 16, the fourth edition of the day dedicated to the album format will celebrate women artists and their huge contribution to music and culture through the form of the album.

Celebrating Women in Music allows for the opportunity to revisit iconic and influential albums by women, from the very earliest pioneers to present-day legends, and point towards the exciting women artists of the future. It will also highlight the role of women within the wider music community including songwriters and producers who are often overlooked.

To coincide with the announcement, the Official Charts Company can reveal that Adele is the UK’s best-selling woman album artist since the year 2000, leading a Top 10 which also includes iconic acts like Kylie, Britney Spears and fellow Brits Amy Winehouse and Dido. Between them, the Top 10 artists have sold in excess of 72 million albums between them (including streaming equivalents).

Adele also claims the Number 1 album by a woman artist of the century to date, with her 2011 album 21 which has sold just shy of 6 million copies in the UK alone. Her other albums, 25 and 19 also feature in the Top 10 at Number 3 and Number 9 respectively. Also taking multiple spots in the Top 10 is Dido, with No Angel (6) and Life For Rent (7), while Lady Gaga, Norah Jones and Emeli Sande also make an appearance. See the full Top 10 below.

The BPI’s Geoff Taylor and Kim Bayley of the Entertainment Retailers Association said in a joint statement, “We are delighted that National Album Day is returning for a fourth edition, again supported by our official partners Bowers & Wilkins and BBC Sounds, and with a theme that will rightly celebrate the huge contribution being made by women to music through the album format.

“The way music is made, discovered and enjoyed may be changing, but the album remains central to this process, and National Album Day allows fans and artists alike to celebrate this much loved artform and remind ourselves of its continuing power to tell a story in a way that only it can, influencing and inspiring generations along the way.”

More information, including this year's ambassadors and exclusive product, will be made throughout the year leading to the event on October 16.

So Adele has overtaken Beatles Pepper and Abba's Gold to become second highest album to Queen's Greatest Hits? Hard to believe.

Yes at seeing Pink and Dido in that top 5! Very happy to see Pink leading over other international females, the recognition she rarely gets.

Impressive to see how Amy Winehouse and Dido are essentially that high from two albums!

Adele is not as big as she used to be. I think Lizzo is probably the biggest one now.

To be fair, we don't actually know that until Adele releases an album next.

What exactly are you basing that on anyway?

Surprised Britney is ahead of Christina. Always assumed Xtina had sold more albums. I guess Britney’s Greatest Hits was bigger?

Christina only has three albums this century above Platinum whilst Britney has six, nearly seven. 'Stripped' has 2m sales, but that's cancelled out by two Britney albums.
