This week’s Billboard Top 200 Albums and Hot 100 Singles charts will feature quite a few surprises and new additions amongst the usual suspects. For starters, repeated vocal offender Rihanna rebounds to the Top 10 with ‘Talk That Talk’ jumping from 14-9 (25,000; up 9%).
Adele, the golden-voiced ambassador from the land of tea and crumpets maintains her firm position at No. 1 for the 23rd non-consecutive week on the Billboard 200 Albums chart, selling 247,000 copies of ’21’ (down 17%). Lastly the late ‘Queen of Pop’, Whitney Houston, holds the distinction of having three entries simultaneously on the same chart: ‘Whitney: The Greatest Hits’ (#2), ‘The Bodyguard’ (#5), and ‘Whitney Houston’ (#10); a career first for the diva.
