‘Rolling In the Deep’ diva Adele’s ’21′ album is still rolling over competition on both album and single charts despite debuting almost a year ago. Already crowned 2011′s best selling album and spending 43 of its 44 week shelf-life in Billboard’s top 5, the songstress moved back to #1 after moving an additional 144k albums this week. Such feat ties her with fellow female powerhouse vocalist Whitney Houston’s 1986 self-titled debut for a 14 week run atop Billboard’s album charts. The only other female (or female led) albums to know such reign would be ‘The Bodyguard’ soundtrack (20 weeks from 1992-1993) and Carole King‘s ‘Tapestry’ (15 weeks in 1971).
On the singles front, the British beauty is commanding the lower half of the chart’s top 10 with ‘Someone Like You’ and ‘Set Fire To the Rain’ at no.8 and no.9 respectively. At the chart’s higher end, ‘Party Rock Anthem‘ duo extend their top 10 reign at #1 and #6 respectively with their party favorites ‘Sexy and I Know It’ and ‘Party Rock’. Filling out the top five, gal pals Rihanna and Katy Perry can be found at #2 and #3 respectively with ‘We Found Love’ and “The One That Got Away”.
Finally, while the ladies have run this motha- for quite sometime, the men are finally getting in on some of the action. Bruno Mars makes a splash with ‘It Will Rain’ at #4, Flo Rida makes good at #5 with ‘Good Feeling’, and Jay Z/Kanye settle at #7 with ‘Ni**as In Paris’.
