So far, Adele’s “21” is the best-selling album of the year, with a little  over 2.5 million copies sold. Rick  Rubin, who produced several tracks on the album, says while he had no idea  the album would connect with so many people, he understands why it has.

“She doesn’t carry any of the baggage of many of today’s pop stars, and it  truly is about the music first, and her voice and her lyrics, and baring her  soul with what she’s saying. I would say what she makes is her art, and at no  time does it feel like product,” he said in a phone interview recently. “So much  of pop music feels like product.”

The British singer won Grammys for her debut album “19,” but has catapulted  to superstar status with the success of “21” and hits like the No. 1 “Rolling in  the Deep.” Figures released by Nielsen  SoundScan earlier this week showed it was the year’s most popular album at  the mid-way point.

Rubin, a Grammy-winning producer who’s worked with artists ranging from Jay-Z  to Johnny  Cash to Neil  Diamond, says the raw emotions in songs on the album, inspired mostly by the  23-year-old’s breakup with a boyfriend, are what people are  responding to.

“She really bared her soul lyrically, and I think that’s what resonating with  people — the truth in her lyrics, and the passion in which she tells that  truth,” he said
