Adele’s 25 has now sold more than 5 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music. It’s the first album to sell 5 million in a calendar year since Adele’s previous album, 21, did so in 2011.

Further, in terms of total sales (not just sales registered in a calendar year), 25 is one of only 11 albums released since 2005 to sell 5 million. (And of those, five are by Adele and Taylor Swift.)

In addition to 25, the albums released since 2005 that have sold more than 5 million in the U.S. are: Swift’s 1989 (released in 2014; 5.5 million), Adele’s 21 (2011; 11.3 million), Swift’s Fearless (2008; 7 million), Josh Groban’s Noel (2007; 5.82 million), Swift’s self-titled album (2006; 5.56 million), Daughtry’s self-titled album (2006; 5.04 million), Nickelback’s All the Right Reasons (2005; 7.91 million), Carrie Underwood’s Some Hearts (2005; 7.45 million), Mariah Carey’s The Emancipation of Mimi (2005; 6.08 million) and 50 Cent’s The Massacre (2005; 5.36 million).
