Adele Spends 15 Weeks Atop US Album Chart

Published: Wednesday 11th Jan 2012 by David

If you thought the arrival of 2012 would see sales of Adele‘s ‘21‘ slow down, you were wrong.

For, this week almost a year since its release worldwide, the project is this week’s #1 on the Billboard 200- for the 15th time.



Full story below…

If the project goes onto hit the #1 spot again next week, it will match the record currently held by the ‘Titanic’ soundtrack and extend the belter’s status as the highest selling artist to debut within the last ten years.

As well as this, the project now ties  with Whitney Houston‘s debut album for the third-most weeks atop the chart, and if it continues to sell as many copies per week as it did last year, it will have combined sales of 30 million copies worldwide by the end of 2012.

    adele deserves it! amazing song writing, amazing songs, beautiful voice, always sings live and down to earth. a billion times better than any manufactured s*** out these days…yes even Rihanna is manuactured! In a decades time, Adele’s album may go on to become second biggest selling album of all time, only behind thriller!

    That Adele reign just won’t let up. It’s now been confirmed that 21 will remain at #1 next week too tying with Titanic. Your favs couldn’t.

    21 is the full package. It’s got its ballads, midtempos, jazz, country, blues…

    Set Fire to the Rain is most likely going to hit #1 on the Hot 100 next week.

    Those of you saying the quality of her music sucks need an embracing reality check if you think Rihanna is better. And for those calling her fat and overweight…Adele is relevant and many of us relate to her music…that’s why she’s reigning right now. Y’all just made that your favs could never sell over 16 million worldwide off just 1 album. Most have to release albums simualtaneously just to stay relevant and out there.

    She´s way far form that. i mean there are lots of albums that have sold 20, 25 or 30 million copies or more. I can´t see “21” becoming the second highest selling album in history. She would have to sell 40 million copies. Sorry but not gonna happen

    I´m so happy with all of this. She definitely has the biggest era since the 21th century began. But it hurts a little that there´s no one that can stop her, there are no new albums coming in the next months that you could see they are coming for her. And surpassing Celine´s or Whitney´s records… it´s a little too much for me. I think the total record is at 20 weeks at #1 by Whitney. I CAN definitely see that happening

    @Trucieb……F***** just STFU because ur ass is bioplar ass hell Lmao…how am i pressed, i didnt come n here and said someone was slaying someone else…ur stupid ass did…F***** GOODBYE. Anyway Adele, Beyonce, Christina A., Pink, Alicia K and a few others are the only real talent we have n music. I wish we can go bac to the Sanging Divas. These women have voices, so i hope they use them on their next projects. Enough with these Gimmick b******..*cough Hihanna*

Overexposed??? F*** your so called queen, could never do this s***!! All this s*** bout her baby and s***!! You stans can’t see that s***, but your queen is done, sorry face the facts!!

  23. Jazmine January 12, 2012

    Yes her and Bey are my faves. Adele’s voice is the s***. I mean I’ve never really seen someone’s ALBUM stay at #1 like that, so glad for her! Love her!

  24. Time to flop January 12, 2012
