Adele’s ’21’ Breaks New Record On Billboard 200

Published: Wednesday 10th Aug 2011 by David

She came.

She saw. She conquered your favourite artist.

For British entertainer Adele has broken yet another record on the Billboard 200 and this one may just be her biggest.

Read the rest below…

Champagne bottles will be popping at XL Recordings tonight, for ’21‘ has now spent more weeks at #1 than any other artist in the 21st century thus far.

Shifting 76,000 units this week it outsold both ‘4′ by Beyonce which moved 34,000 copies in the last seven days and Amy Winehouse‘s ‘Back To Black‘ which brought in a figure of 20,000 units.

On the singles front, Nicki Minaj and her ‘Barbz’ have cause to celebrate as her smash hit ‘SuperBass’ is this weeks #3, one spot behind Katy Perry‘s ‘Last Friday Night‘ which is this weeks #2.

At #7 sits Britney Spears‘ ‘I Wanna Go‘ two places above Adele’s ‘Rolling In The Deep’.

  16. YEABEY and the lessors don’t mix August 10, 2011

    ADELE IS QUEEN!

  17. nomam August 10, 2011

    Congrats to her…she is not on Madonna’s level yet lol no female artist is. When the name “Adele” becomes bigger than the name “Madonna” then there is cause to celebrate 🙂

  18. The One August 10, 2011

    Can Adele do half of what beyonce can on stage? I think not!!! What people need to understand in that adele has her country and the U.S buying her music!!! If she was an American artist she wouldn’t be selling have the records that she has. Stop comparing her to people who actually had to work for their success, and be happy that she is doing so well!

  19. NICK August 10, 2011

    I think this is gonna hurt her next album tho, SHE IS GOOD-AMAZING, but this is just like WOW! longevity is the key/

  20. vicious vixen August 10, 2011

    She’s killin em softly isn’t she? 😆 Go head ‘Dele!!!

  24. The Naked Truth August 10, 2011

    STILL NOTHING about Kelly……?

    chile Sam MUST be hurrrrrrrrrrrrrrt!

  25. MelyB August 10, 2011

    “If she was an American artist she wouldn’t be selling half the records that she has.”

    Correction if she was a Black American female r&b artist she wouldn’t be selling half the records. No love for Jill Scott, Ledisi, Kelly Price, etc and so it goes.

    Congrats to Adele anyway.

  26. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. August 10, 2011

    LMAO@ BLEACHonce only selling 34k.Sales decrease each week. FLOP FLOP FLOP. 4closure will take months to reach 1 million sales in the US. Maybe it’ll be there by Jan. 1st. Who knows? BLEACHonce= washed up. :mrgreen:

    And ObeseDele= Susan Boyle. The big h** will fade from the spotlight after this year. But congrats!

  27. Them other chicks are superficial (queenbey) August 10, 2011

    @QUEEN BEYONCDE STANN-

    Sam is avioding all topics about Kelly this week…..

    PUHLEEESE…. ADELE IS THE BEAST. YOU HAVE NO OPTION BUT TO DEAL WITH THIS TRUTH

  29. Island Gyal August 10, 2011

    I love me some Adele, but she has no real competition now i.e. around the time Taylor, Susan, MJ, Eminem came out. Good album release timing on the part of her team….so Kudos. Lol Beyawnce will be out of the top ten next week!

  30. goddess adele stan August 10, 2011

    BEYONCE WILL NEVER TOP THE CHARTS AGAIN. SHE TOPPED THE CHARTS FOR LIKE, WAIT A MINUTE, 4 OR 3 YEARS AND SHE ALREDAY PEAKED AND FLOPPED…

    THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN U HAVE 0 ORIGINALITY + 0 CREATIVITY.

  31. YEABEY and the lessors don’t mix August 10, 2011

    Kelly isnt out of the Top 10 right?

  32. La-Q August 10, 2011

    Wheres Rihanna? bwahahah. Probably looking thirsty in Jamaica. Where ever she is from.

  33. King B August 10, 2011

    While I’m happy as hell for her, this…:

    “She came.

    She saw. She conquered your favourite artist.”

    … should be left for the comments section, not you guys. You sound like desperate stans, ugh.

  34. princebarbietv August 10, 2011

    All the Beyonce shade thought this post was about Adele anywho good for her she deserves it! And Brit Brit sitting pretty at #7 yassss for all her singles going to the top ten this era!

  35. TALENT + SOUL = KING BEY & QUEEN ADELE (ADELE = 12 WEEKS AT NO.1 ON BB200 – KING BEY = FOUR SOLD OUT SHOWS in 4HOURS) August 10, 2011

    CORRECTION…

    ADELE HAS NOT SPENT “MORE WEEKS ON THE BB200 THUS FAR”…

    SHE HAS TIED WITH “SANTANA – 2000” AND “SAVAGE GARDEN – 2000/2001” WITH MOST WEEKS AT NO.1 WHICH IS “12 WEEKS”.

    I LOVE ADELE, BUT POST THE CORRECT INFORMATION @TGJ

    NONETHELESS, MY KING AND QUEEN IS SLAYING…

    #DON’T HATE#

  36. lolatthiswebsite August 10, 2011

    I love her but seriously sitting down and singing about a boy is gonna get old, your doing your thing Slaydele as of RIGHT NOW but if you come out next year sitting down singing about a relationship, you are gonna be DONE, we have heard a million songs about love, we get it, STEP YOUR GAME UP!!! (From a REAL Adele fan who is just keeping it real)

  37. trucie August 10, 2011

    Crazy. Just crazy. What 3 yrs in the game and my b**** is sitting pretty at the top. Congrats Adele! Can’t wait to see u in concert.

  38. Them other chicks are superficial (queenbey) August 10, 2011

    @TAYLORSWIFTFAN-

    U always kno how much an artist is expected to sell……lol

  39. Bey Fan… August 10, 2011

    Why the Beyonce shade???? WTF?

    Adelle deserves it, the album is GREAT!!!

    The Beyonce shade is not necessary, especially since Adelle is doing better than everyone at the present moment

  40. mobwife August 10, 2011

    “Katy Perry’s ‘Last Friday Night‘ which is this weeks #2.”

    Of course this crap song was going to be moved out of the #1 slot with a quickness! They only allowed it to peek at #1 so they could declare her on the same level as MICHEAL JACKSON (as if)!

    Happy for Adele. I hope she can stay grounded with all of the success she’s receiving!

  41. lol August 10, 2011

    i so happy for her

  42. jump off the band wagon August 10, 2011

    Sam you’re starting to become like Sandra rose crusty ass.
    What the hell is up with these fake ass records you keep making up?
    Why are you so late on certain news as of late?

    anyway, adele is doing her thing.
    But I won’t lie 21 is a snore fest.
    Vocals are ok there are better singers out.
    It takes more than soul to make you an great vocalist.

    What really gets me is that most of you during the “19”
    refered to her as a cow from the uk.
    Now all of a sudden she is slaydele?
    Which is the gayest,dumbest,not thought out
    Nick name you couldngive someone.

    Most of you are the biggest band wagon riders of all time(new record)!!
    You dont have to pretend to like something just because your fave is flopping or not doing as well as you though they would.

    I bet most of you dont even have 21.

  43. #Fresh August 10, 2011

    I feel like everytime i log on TGJ its a new stat about Adele or Nicki Minaj everyday and some “record” they are breaking. Its like you guys are so biased when it comes to these two….congrats to them on their success but please give it a rest with the post…damn!

  44. Q_C August 10, 2011

    Oh well I guess yall so call (king B) is finished!!!!!!! Signed, sealed, delivered, she flopped! 😉 she better go have them camel babies before them eggs are all dried up! Cant have babies with powdered eggs…lol

  45. B_stanning August 10, 2011

    ADELE IS A QUEEN AND SHE DESERVES HER SUCCESS. SHE IS A TRUE ARTIST

  46. Those That Cannot Do, Stan August 10, 2011

    Got-damn! Good job Adele!

    She might need to retire so some folks can have their music career back.

  47. nice_gurl August 10, 2011

    Congrats Adele. I have said this on other posts before, but I will post this again. Adele is a great singer and has some great music, but I have heard way better and I do not understand how she can still be #1, with no promotion etc.

  48. theman August 10, 2011

    Adele is a great singer, she’s still number 1 because she has great quality music that is resonating with everyone. She is amazing. She is only sitting down in one video. This is just AWESOME !!!! GO ADELE !!!!!!!!!

  49. VAN August 10, 2011

    Now for the ultimate question:

    Will she do this good on her next album?

  50. Sherry August 11, 2011

    Congrats to Adele, although let’s be honest. Once she cleans up awards time, people will be fickle and turn against her. Too many hop on the bandwagon until the next act. Especially here in the States where there’s only one British artist allowed to succeed per every 10 yrs. The only exception is Sade. And flip side, only one uber talented soul singer or unique artist per decade before they ignore them ala’ Norah Jones or Lauryn Hill. So let’s be real. And no offense, the Beyonce haterade shade is old. She sold out tickets in 22 seconds and hit #1, that’s hardly a flop. And Kelly, get a better team, no flashing boobs.

  51. Aaliyah August 11, 2011

    B****, I’m ready for a new video. “Someone Like You” and “Set Fire To The Rain” needs to be released in the US. She’s selling like CRAZY. 5x platinum ain’t no problem for Adele.

  52. REESE August 11, 2011

    ADELE IS KILLING BEYONCES CAREER RIGHT NOW! BEYONCE DOESNT HAVE 1 NUMBER 1 SINGLE ON THE CHARTS!

  53. NoBey August 11, 2011

    I love her album. Has she released any more singles besides Rolling in the Deep and Rumor Has It?

  54. ADELEFAN August 11, 2011

    adele is running the charts and she already 10 times platinum so beyonce has no chance.

  55. JohnVidal August 11, 2011

    @goddess adele stan
    Beyonce has NOT any type of big record if we talk about the charts. Don´t talk as if she had them until recent times or something.

    To her fans: don´t get me wrong she is very succesful, I was just stating a fact, and don´t bring elaborated records like the ones TGJ tries to elaborate with Nicky minaj

    @mobwife
    Naked Perry has not been #1 yet with this song. It stays at #2 and I hope it won´t happen

    Finally: Go Adele. That´s selling! 🙂

  56. that_lala August 11, 2011

    She DEFINITLY CONQUERED EVERYBODY..BEYONCE,LADY GAGA,EVERY DAMN BODY…THIS GIRL IS AWESOME…U CAN’T LIE AND SAY SHE NT A BAD B**** AND SHE DID IT ALL WHILE KEEPING HER CLOTHES ON…BIG ACHIEVEMENT ADELE!!!
