Adele may have recently become a mother, but she’s managed to achieve another milestone this year.

Her second record, 21 is the 21st album to sell 10 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The singer managed to reach this record in under two years—92 weeks to be exact—and sold a whopping 730,000 copies in the week following the GRAMMYS where she took home six awards.

The last album to sell as many copies was ‘N Sync’sNo Strings Attached, which managed to reach 10 million in its 43rd week back in 2001.

The only album to hit 10 million faster was fellow boy banders the Backstreet Boys with their 2000 album, Millennium, which managed the feat in 39 weeks.

Other members of the 10 mill club include Santana’s Supernatural, Whitney Houston with The Bodyguard Soundtrack, Shania Twain’sCome On Over
