’21 Again’: Adele Snatches #1 Spot From Nicki Minaj

Published: Sunday 22nd Apr 2012 by David

Much like every week since January 2011, this one has given Adele much to smile about.

For, after watching her latest LP go 9X Platinum last week, this week has seen the LP top the UK Album’s Chart, for the 24th time.

Details below…

Snatching the top spot away from Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded‘ (#3), ‘21′ has now matched a record held by Bob Dylan, for spending the same number of weeks at #1.

In at #4 is Lana Del Rey with ‘Born To Die’, and closing up with the Top 5 is Jessie J’s debut effort ‘Who You Are’, enjoying a sales boost as a result of ‘The Voice UK‘, in which she stars in alongside Will.I.Am and Tom Jones.

At #6 is Emeli Sande‘s ‘Our Version Of Events‘ while Madonna’s ‘MDNA’ holds court at #13 for a second week. Rihanna‘s ‘Talk That Talk’ resides at #28 while her 2010 effort ‘Loud’ is #48, dropping two spots since last week and 51 one places above Beyonce‘s award winning ‘4′.

On a singles front, major congratulations go to our friend Conor Maynard. His new single ‘Can’t Say No’ debuted at #2, following his set on That Grape Juice’s ‘The Splash’.

    LOL @Nicki Garbaj FLOPPING as the GREAT LACEFRONCE predicted 🙂

    OBESEdele better enjoy the success while she can, after this album, no one will care about her..like Susan Boyle

    BTW, 21 is GROSSLY overrated 😕

    All this fat b**** sings about the entire album is how someone dumped her

    Learn to be diverse like Rihanna!

  2. Girrrl April 22, 2012

    Bwahahaha “Beyonce’s award winning 4” Goodnight! Is Loud really one spot ahead of 4. Didn’t Loud come out six months before that album?! Anyhow, Adele’s sales are crazy. Madonna’s sales are hilarious and Rih is still holding on with two albums. Good for her.

  3. KAT DELUNA FAN April 22, 2012

    4 is flopping that much?you couldnt even say the spot 😕 😆

    RIHANNA’S SO-CALLED “DIVERSITY” HAS YET TO SEE HER SCORE A #1 ALBUM IN THE U.S.A. LOL. IF THAT WAS THE CASE, SHE’D HAVE THE VERSATILE FAN-BASE EVER.

  15. ethel122 April 22, 2012

    @cathy

    I have to agree with you, I guess the mainstream audience are tired of some of thses artist showing out in the public eye and think it’s cute.They think no one can touch them but look above Bammmmmmmmmmm. Nicki hears voices & shut down her twitter & the weed smoking by Rihanna I mean come on.

  16. BEYRIHSTAN April 22, 2012

  17. -_- April 22, 2012

    Y’all acting like Conor Maynard debuted at #2 because of his set on the splash lmao! -_-

    Congrats to Adele….I guess. I’m pretty sure everyone in the Uk owns that album already.

  21. Nats April 22, 2012

    I really don’t get this adele thing. The album is good but I won’t buy it sorry. People are buying it over and over just cause she’s white.

  22. SEXYME April 22, 2012

    @ Andre…. B**** SIT YOUR CORNY ASS DOWN SOMEWHERE WITH THAT B*******!!! THE ONLY ONE RUNNING S*** AROUND THE WORLD IS ADELE!!! YOU WILL DEAL LOSER!!!!

  23. Quetta April 22, 2012

    Damnn, Adele is winning like s***. And why does everybody dislike her and bey?? Why you mad?? How about you get on top of your s*** then you can be make money like them too.

  24. She better enjoy it. April 22, 2012

    I’ve seen this numerous times before with Boyz II Men, Hootie and the Blowfish, Alanis Morisette, Backstreet Boys, Norah Jones, etc., etc. The list goes on. Those huge album phenomenons that looms a large shadow over the entire industry and everyone from teens to grandmothers are buying it because the media is hyping it like it’s the Bible.

    Too much success, too soon is almost never good in the long run. Red hot has a habit of turning to stone cold. It would have been better for her career if 21 had peaked at 6x platinum and quietly faded away. No one can top or even maintain that kind of momentum for longer than a single album. There’s no where else for her to go after this but down. The bigger they are, the harder they fall.

  25. JER April 22, 2012

    I can’t. Trying to shove BeYAWnce’s name in everything

  26. the real xoxo April 22, 2012

    @she better enjoy it

    “it wouldve been better if she was 6x platinum instead of 9x platinum”
    what on earth are you talking about? adele is obviously not a media w**** like katy perry rihanna. she said herself her next album is coming in a few years. shes not one of these “strike while the iron is hot” h***. it doesnt matter if her next cd flops because she has already broken so many records and will be rememberd in 20 years.

  27. Kareem April 22, 2012

    Duh we all knew this was going to happen because not alot of people are making great albums anymore just autotune crap. Adele would not last in the 80s and 90s when it was so many great album coming out back to back unlike today its mostly trash just for fast money.

  28. virtuoso intellect April 22, 2012

    @JER

    lol i was about to say it’s been a while since u called Bey out of her name, i was even beginning to think perhaps your feelings towards her have softened oop

  29. soulmusiclover April 22, 2012

  37. virtuoso intellect April 22, 2012

    em Bey has a won a teen choice, VMA, AMA, soul train award this era so maybe u missed plenty

  38. Teacher April 22, 2012

    Oh THOSE awards………*crickets*

  39. Saetana April 23, 2012

    Much as I think Adele has done fantastically well with her albums, 21 has been out for over a year now so who the f*** is still buying it in such big numbers? Yes, any decent album will continue to have moderate sales for a considerable time but she has been in the top 5 almost consistently (she has slipped out occasionally) for over a year now. I think she is talented but am really getting sick of hearing about her now, and if I hear Someone Like You again I am going to throw something at my TV (something soft as my husband would go ballistic, lol, its his baby like the computer is mine).

  40. Ugh April 23, 2012

    Where’s XYZ? I thought Nicki Minaj was running the industry? *blank stare*

  41. Inlovewithbey April 23, 2012
