Adele's "21" Passes Michael Jackson's "Thriller" In Sales In The U.K.

It was just this past March that we reported on Adele's 21 surpassing Pink Floyd's classic Dark Side of the Moon in sales in the U.K. But in less than two month's time she's already moved up two more spots on the list, passing two other classic albums in the process. Those are Dire Straits' Brothers In Arms and, well, Michael Jackson's Thriller

21 is currently sitting at around 4,274,300 units sold -- some 500 more than Thriller -- and that total also makes it the top-selling album of the 21st century. That title was previously held by Amy Winehouse's Back to Black.

You can view the list of the 10 best-selling albums in the U.K. below. Is Oasis next?

1. Queen – Greatest Hits
2. The Beatles – Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
3. ABBA – Gold: Greatest Hits
4. Oasis – (What’s The Story) Morning Glory?
5. Adele – 21
6. Michael Jackson – Thriller
7. Dire Straits – Brothers In Arms
8. Pink Floyd – The Dark Side Of The Moon
9. Michael Jackson – Bad
10. Queen – Greatest Hits II
