Neilsen SoundScan has reported its mid-year sales numbers, and Adele's 21 is the only album so far to have sold over 1 million units (she sold 3.69 million copies so far). This is the first time the industry has only had one album sell at least 1 million records mid-way through the year in SoundScan's 21 years of tracking data. Remarkably, 21 was also the leader at the mid-way point in 2011, and topped the year-end charts last year as well. If the record sells the most copies this year, it will be the first album to ever top the total sales charts two years in a row.

The latest (and greatest?) in the line of parodies of Gotye's "Someone That I Used To Know" is a Star Wars-themed one. Check out the parody video in the replies - it's well worth the watch.

Gotye's not too happy with the Glee version of his hit song, "Somebody That I Used to Know." The singer commented to EW that, "They did such a faithful arrangement of the instrumentals, but the vocals were that pop Glee style ó ultra-dry, sounded pretty tuned. And the rock has no real sense, Like itís playing to you from a cardboard box."

In the "Makes Me Feel Talentless" section of today's news, head to the replies to watch a jaw-dropping a capella cover of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know." How does it stack up to the original?
