In an interesting battle between two albums filled with breakup songs about their real life ex-boyfriends, Adele‘s “21″ album has beaten Taylor Swift‘s fairly-new album, “Red,” for the title of the best-selling album in the United States.

According to officials, “21″ sold 4.41 million copies last year and Swift‘s “Red” trailed behind with 3.31 million.

The same album by the Australian crooner and first-time mom was also last year’s best-selling album, which includes famous heart-wrenching hits like “Someone Like You” and “Rolling In The Deep.’

Interestingly though, Taylor‘s new heartthrob boyfriend Harry Styles‘ British pop group, One Direction, had their albums “Up All Night” and “Take Me Home” in the 3rd and 5th place, respectively.
