Sam Smith has become the only artist in the world to score a million-selling album in both the UK and the US this year.
According to the Official Charts Company, the star's debut album In The Lonely Hour has passed the one million sales mark in the UK in the past 24 hours.
The news comes just a day after Smith's LP was confirmed a million-seller in the United States by Nielsen Music.
Speaking of his achievement, Sam told OfficialCharts.com: "OFFICIALLY sold 1 MILLION copies of In The Lonely Hour!
"To say I am ecstatic is a huge understatement. Thank you so much to every single person who has purchased my album.”
Sam follows Ed Sheeran by achieving the feat, with the Thinking Out Loud singer's sophomore album x reaching the million landmark in November.
