Billboard names Adele their top Artist of 2012. This comes to no surprise with the giant success of her latest album 21 that recently went diamond.
On Friday, Billboard said that Adele is the year’s biggest artist as well as her Diamond selling album as the Album of the year. Adele is no stranger to these titles, as she held the award last year.
According to Billboard, the top three songs of the year are “Somebody That I Used To Know” by Gotye, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe”, and “We Are Young” by fun.
Adele also takes the plaque for top female artist of the year, while Drake grabs the title for top male artist. One Direction is the top new artist and Maroon 5 is the year’s top group.
This has definitely been a fascinating year for Adele musically and personally. Along with the mass success of her album 21, the British singer is expecting a baby boy early next year!
