    Adele what can I say the girl is doing her thing anybody who hates are just irrelevant to me.. This girl albums is amazing man!

    Lana dey Rey did her thing with her first week sales I didn’t think she could sell that much she just needs them radio hits

  12. Aishaaguilerakeys February 8, 2012

    Isn’t Adèle amazing, though? Her album’s been out longer, yet she still has a higher position on the charts!

  13. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! February 8, 2012

    Love adeles song “one and only” should maybe be her 5th release after “turning tables”


    might as well just give adele all her awards now…..

    cause she had the best soul/r&b album in 2011……

    now it looks like shes about to take 2012….

  15. Matt February 8, 2012

    No news on Kelly clarkson at number one then? Just goes to show, you don’t have to flash them titties and have rappers on your song *madonna*

  16. TheMan4u February 8, 2012

    even with all the hype and the superbowl Madonna didnt have the #1 single?

  17. bey is legend February 8, 2012

    im so happy for Kelly Clarkson going number 1 with stronger. thats one artist that stuck to her chops and topped the charts with a song she’ll proud of decades away from now. the song is just too feel-good.

    lol at Adele, she’s not even showing signs of slipping let alone falling off the charts #badbitch

  18. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare February 8, 2012

    So Adele is still selling 100,000+ plus a week & the album turns 1 year old on Feb. 22.!!!! Damn Adele!

  19. GaGa RiRi Slayoncé Nicki>Your Flop fave. Stay mad February 8, 2012

    Hmmmm, not familiar with lana del rey. Nor do I care. As for the others they are boring and safe. Probably why they are dominating the top.

  20. pat February 8, 2012

    madonna’s single fell from like #2 on itunes to like #90 in two days…..flop

  21. Onyx February 8, 2012

    Madonna’s GMAYL’ is #13 in this Week’s Billboard Hot100.

    At first i didn’t like the single them i love it, is the kind of song that made Madonna a Pop force, simply Pop, nothing special but is very catchy, she said that the album is like two sides, one is very funny (solveig songs) and one is very dark (orbit songs), i like that. As a fan of Madonna i learn to enjoy every move that she make in her career, cause at the end of the day i will eat whatever s*** she puts out, only her can’t make that for me. That’s why she is still relevant today coz a lots fans turns back to their idols when they don’t make something that you want, don’t gimme with that s*** that you will not support this single because is not good, if you are a real fan of Madonna you will like it, coz you get used to it to her changes in Music, looks everything, she’s the greatest chameleonic in Music.

    Long Live The Queen! we Luv U Madonna.

    Aww I don´t want Adele to break Bodyguard´s record of 20 weeks at #1 on USA album chart. You know, it´s Whitney f****** Houston! haha
    But she´s great and congrats for all her success, maybe it´s a little too much for me now, I need some competition for her. What the hell is she going to sell after the grammys then??? 300,000 per week like at Xmas time again?

  23. GaGa RiRi Slayoncé Nicki> Your Flop Fave. Stay Mad February 8, 2012

    Alll tub of lard ADELE can do is sing. She is boring. She is NOT an artist in the least. When I go to a concert All I’m gonna see is her standing there in a black dress singing the ol same sad breakup songs. B**** switch up your lane or GTFO.

    • hqhadhd July 2, 2012

      And you consider Nicki Minaj to be a true artist as opposed to Adele? I’m guessing that maybe annoying “superfans” like you are the reason why people dislike Nicki Minaj. She does have talent, but the fans drag it to the point where it’s just annoying.

  24. Yea i said it February 8, 2012

    rihanna still in the top ten

  25. Theman February 8, 2012

    Congrats to Adele & Kelly for making records that are of substance.

  26. Songscribe February 9, 2012

    Good going Godele, show them how to run this biznizzz. No rainbow wigs, ‘no strings only’ on yo body. Dresses decently and slaying while sitting on a chair. Congratulations to Kelly clarkson, she just a cool chick. Pure talent. Yes talk that talk’s back in the top ten. Certified gold in the US, after the grammies it will reach platinum, yo!yo!yo! I can’t at this slayage @Sam where are you hiding now.

  27. KD February 9, 2012

    They might as well rename the Billboard Charts to Adele and Others because she seems to be a mainstay. She is doing her thing so I will not hate.
