Mediamyxx:Adele runs up the score

As Billboard revealed Adle’s 21 is the first number one album of the new year and soundscan officiated that 21 was the highest selling album of 2011 I couldn’t help but to revisit the MTV artist of the year criteria. During the end of year rants MUSIC television put Nicki Minaj ahead of Adele for the year because, wait for it all she did is sell records and singles. They went on about Nicki having the fanbase and fanfare but truth be told if the fans don’t pull out their perspective currency and buy it what’s it all worth? Adele has sold damn near 15 million copies worldwide before 2012 hit and that was off of two singles. Both singles of course went on to blockbuster status themselves and the third single is setting fire to the charts as we speak. Go to MTV.com and watch the baffling exchange. Tell us your thoughts:
