She’s a legendary woman.

Adele has broken so many records with her album, 21, that Billboard has decided to name it the top album of all time.

Based on a points system that tallies the number of weeks certain albums spent on Billboard‘s Top 200, the publication created their best-of list.

The Sound of Music soundtrack came in second and Michael Jackson‘s Thriller rounded out the top three.

As far as top acts go, The Beatles picked up first place with a whopping 19 number one hits that spent 132 weeks atop the Billboard‘s 200.

“Five of the group’s albums are among the all-time Billboard 200 titles, led by, at No. 54, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, which spent 15 straight weeks at No. 1 in 1967,” the publication writes.

The Rolling Stones scooped up the second prize on the top acts list, and coming in at number three is Barbra Streisand.

Back to Adele– the singer’s 21, which came out in 2011, spent 24 weeks atop Billboard‘s 200, and spent 78 weeks in the top ten.

We’re sure her next album, 25, will break plenty of records, too.

“It’s not as themed as my last record. The reason I labeled it a ‘make-up record,’ it sounds super cliché, but my last record was labeled a ‘break-up record,’ and rightly so, because it was a break-up record. This record is all about how I feel as opposed to how someone else has made me feel, it’s about how I made myself feel,” Adele told Rolling Stone.

25 comes out Nov. 20.
