Adele has become the first artist to have reached the status of double platinum on iTunes alone. With her album “21”, Adele has sold over 2 million copies of her second album on iTunes within a year of its release, something that no one else has come close to. Columbia Records also notes that she has sold over 16 million copies of the album worldwide. Gives a bit of perspective on how important iTunes is to artists.
