Adele’s simply inescapable tune “Rolling in the Deep” has now become the biggest and best-selling digital song of all time by a woman in the U.S. and, moreover, has become the second bigget-selling digital song of all time. Not too shabby for a 23 year old soul and pop singer.
Now that “Rolling in the Deep” has capped off the last week of February with 99,000 sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan, the song has reached a cumulative sales point of 6.68 million, which has pushed “Rolling in the Deep” past Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” (currently sitting at 6.62 million) to become the best-selling female-led song.
Not only that, but “Rolling in the Deep” is now second only the mind-bending horrors of the Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling” (7.82 million) in the list of best-selling digital songs of all time, which knocks Gaga’s “Poker Face” to the number three spot. The rest of the top ten is filled out with Gaga’s “just Dance” in fourth place, the Peas’ “Boom Boom Pow” in fifth place, LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” at sixth, Flo Rida’s “Low” at seventh, Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok” at eighth, Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours” at ninth place, and Taio Cruz’s “Dynamite” at the ten spot.
