Chart Check: Adele Rolls In 2012 Atop Billboard Charts

Published: Wednesday 4th Jan 2012 by Rashad

‘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’.

    damn i didnt realize ni**az in paris was doing soo damn well on the charts. like #7 on billboard n not rapn or rnb but hot 100!? thats crazy, a song that some ppl feel uncomfertable saying 1 of the words in the title in the top 10 on the charts. that just go n show how times have changed n how WE the ppl put meaning and power in words. o and if u dont like adele being in the top, go out n buy ur fav’s album/single. dont get mad bc who u like cant hang with her. she selling bc she is making real music n not having gimmicks n is staying true to herself.

  11. RoyalKev January 4, 2012

    Wow, Adele is catching up to the amount of weeks that only The voice has nailed with her first album?! That’s incredible! I’d say congrats again, but I’m tired of leaving this comment on Adele post. It’s been on repeat all year. I can’t wait to see what Adele follows this up with. No pressure though, it’s not about numbers!

    @THE GREAT LACEFLOP
    H** HUSH!!!
    Don’t try me!!!! You no life Khia stanning ass h**.
    You dissed Rihanna and went in on her stans on so many post but not you are stanning for her? B**** please. I don’t like Rihanna at ALL but her loyal fans are at least, LOYAL and know what they are talking about. B**** why are you so mean? NOONE LIKES YOU. I hope Sam blocks your email you basic ass b****!!!!

    ANYWHO. I love me some Adele, but this is getting a little fishy to me, and not that it’s an accurate statement but only about 5% of ALL the people I know have 21. It just doesn’t seem right that she is pulling in numbers like these. Does she deserve them? HELL YES, but it just is getting really old and hard to believe. Am I the only one that feels this way?

  13. RATEDXXX(tricks are for kids) January 4, 2012

    ok are we going to get a chart update every week now?

    i’m glad Adele is outselling every body on the charts…but this is getting ridiculous….

    especially sense we all know the agenda behind u posting these charts updates every weekk

    its ur way of bashing rihanna, and praising ur flops that flopping on the charts…

    bottom line, Adele, gaga, rihanna and katy are winning..talk all that s***..aint gonna change the facts…

  14. RATEDXXX(tricks are for kids) January 4, 2012

    @DONT TRY IT B****

    u do know that…its that grape juice posing in different names, to start a stan war right?

  15. AmbeRussell January 4, 2012

    @ DONT TRY IT B****
    well adele album isnt not for any age group unlike a britney,beyonce,rihanna,lady gaga, type artist. 21 is being bought by more than just the 20something, but all generations of ppl. i has the older ppl buying it too. so yeah i dont know any1 besides my mom who bought 21, but i bet my mom knows a lot more ppl who bought it bc its more than just for 1 age group. so i dont think its fishy, i just think that it is being bought by a wide variety of ppl. i mean there is over 300mill ppl alive in the us n her target demographic has no age limit. but i mean, the sales are only at a lil under 6 mill, ppl did that after 2 months of release back in the early 00s

    Wow this Adele era is too amazing for words. The biggest era of the 21th century for damm sure
    Also I want to say what unbelievable records miss Whitney Houston has. You know, true and real records. It happens to you when you are one of the 4 more succesful ever 🙂 True records, and I don´t want to name anyone…
    Also for the ones who say sales are not the same and I reply not only the sales are what you can compare… this is why I always say Beyonce, or Rihanna and the rest have not achieved Whitney and the other 3 greats success. You can look at those records who don´t talk about sales and many other things to realize it (in case you didn´t live those eras, cos if you lived them then you sure know this 00´s have not made it)
