Adele and Rihanna have both scored another million-selling single each this week, according to Official Charts Company.

Adele's 'Rolling in the Deep' – which was released in 2011 – has become the 144th song to reach the milestone in UK chart history, while Rihanna's 'Diamonds' from 2012 is now the 145th track to sell over one million copies.

"In securing their second and fourth million sellers respectively, Adele and Rihanna join an elevated group of artists – it is a tribute to their massive popularity that they have achieved such accolades," said Official Charts Company Chief Executive Martin Talbot.

"Few artists from any era have achieved ONE million-seller in the UK, let alone multiple ones. It is also particularly apt that they have done so in the days leading up to International Women’s Day."
