Adele’s ’21’ Eyes Shania Twain Record After Top 40 Revival

Physical promotion for the album may have ceased over a year ago, but that hasn’t stopped Adele‘s sophomore album ’21’ eyeing a brand new chart record, after watching its sales last week push it back into the US Top 40.

Full story below…

As it stands, the Paul Epworth led piece now enjoys a total of 124 weeks in the US Top 40, while boasting sales of 25 million units worldwide.

Now, after creeping its way to #35 on last week’s Billboard 200, it now stands a mere three weeks away from scoring the most weeks held in the Top 40, snatching that title away from Shania Twain‘s 1997 LP ‘Come On Over‘- which enjoys 127 weeks in that spot.

Shifting 15.2 million units within the first two years of release, ‘Over’ now faces the threat of its record being pulled weeks after Twain confirmed the release of a brand new studio album here, and almost two decades after it was certified 12x Platinum in the UK after watching it sales surpass the 3 million mark in the market.

So, let us know…


Will it hold its record?

  7. godonna army July 15, 2013

    I love Adele!!! 21 and 19 are still my favorite albums ever,cant wait for her new music

  8. stephy the lambily July 15, 2013

    Adele deserves her success. “21′ album is very depressing & boring but she has a great voice an most people love that. I never understood why Shania Twains album sold all those records. 40 million copies like really? I listened to that album atleast 50xs in the past decade & I still don’t understand why it sold that much. OVERRATED

    • . : : h 2 o : : . July 15, 2013

      I agree..

      I liked many songs on 21 but it was overrated .. 19 is a masterpiece but I guess it simply lacked the commercial appeal 21 had.

    • SdotB July 15, 2013

      the fact that u listened to it at least 50x’s speaks for itself…u don’t understand why it sold so much but u listened to it that much?

  9. the real cake like lady gaga July 15, 2013

    Amy Winehouse MADE Adele though, Adele came out when everyone was hoping on Amy Winehouse bandwagon, trying to sound like her.

    People like Adele, Duffy, Gabriella Cilmi ALL owe their success to Amy, they tried SO hard to sound like the legendary Amy Winehouse, may he soul RIP

    • Carpe Diem. July 15, 2013

      Very true! Winehouse’s popularity made other torch singers such as Duffy and Adele commercially viable!

  10. stephy the lambily July 15, 2013

    Another thing Shania Twain looks so beautiful in that pic! She was really beautiful in the 1990s. She was like a better version of Taylor Swift or should I say Taylor Swift is a fake me out Shania Twain.

  11. stephy the lambily July 15, 2013

    Its soo scary that this new generation has soooo many copycat artist.

    1. Tina Turner…. Beyoncé
    2. Shania Twain…. Taylor Swift
    3. Madonna…. Lady Gaga
    4. Michael Jackson…. MOSTLY ALL MALE ARTIST
    5. Prince…. Miguel
    6. Mariah Carey…. Ariana Grande (I THINK?)
    7. Rihanna is original.
    8. Adele is original.
    9. Janet Jackson… OBVIOUSLY C-ERROR LOL
    10. Whintey Houston… Nobody is really copying her style
    11. Celine Dion… MAYBE Leona Lewis because they both have LONNNGGGG horse faces. LOLOLOLOLOLOL

    • Queen Ci July 15, 2013

      yea don’t like Rih but shes.original i guess

  12. rih rox July 15, 2013

    Adele is Nora Jones.

  13. the real cake like lady gaga July 15, 2013

    Adele is a copy of Amy Winehouse theaux

    • godonna army July 15, 2013

      B**** stfu,Ladyboy GayGay is nothing but a poor man’s Madonna

  14. Lovebird (Art FLOP) July 15, 2013

    In this day and age we might as well call it, she is coming for Michael Jackson’s and Barbra Streisand’s record.

    • rih rox July 15, 2013

      Lol! @ your avi

  15. the real cake like lady gaga July 15, 2013

    @GODANNA you have EARNED two seats, sit!!! And you will now be paid dust…


    • godonna army July 15, 2013

      Not yet, i wanna keep dragging you

  16. the real cake like lady gaga July 15, 2013

    @Arabic-Waste-Water aka @Godanna..

    Get off my d***, I don’t do arabs!!!

  17. Jazmine (Jazzy) July 15, 2013

    21 is soooooooooooooooooooooo OVERRATED if Adele wasn’t fat and white people wouldn’t be intrigued.

    • The Boy Toy July 15, 2013


  18. Lovebird (where’s the single heux?) July 15, 2013

    I bought 21 and I skipped through at least half of that album. Now Emeli Sande’s Our version of events is a masterpiece. Top class album, listened to it all without skipping a single song.

  19. Lovebird (Art Flop) July 15, 2013

    Congrats to Adele though but I personally am not here for 21, I didn’t find it to be as good as hyped.

  20. JER July 15, 2013


  21. KingMJ July 15, 2013

    If Adele’s album 21 becomes The best selling album of ALL time I wouldn’t be too bothered by it. She’s actually a quality artist/musician with REAL talent unlike most of these copycats. EVERY artist should be selling 10+ millions records. If Adele can do it shouldn’t everyone else?????

  22. 4Realtho July 15, 2013

    Beyonce was booed in Miami y’all hahahahahahahaha!!!!!! It’s on youtube lol

  23. Suicide Blonde July 15, 2013

    Never really liked 21′, i guess this generation needs something to call MASTERPIECE but isn’t really all that, so proud to be an old hag, no offense kids but your generation sucks.

  24. Jake July 15, 2013

    And you don’t think that before Michael Jackson , Prince , Madonna , Tina Turner and co they were people lile Nina Simone , Ella Fitzgerald , Josephine Baker , James Brown , Dolly Parton , Elvis and co ?
    Don’t act like you know anything ! And plus Rihanna is a mix between Grace Jones and Madonna!

    • Suicide Blonde July 15, 2013

      But Michael Jackson , Prince , Madonna and Tina Turner all changed the music industry, what has your generation done apart from ruin the music industry and the sound itself, and DEATH, Rihanna a mix of Magde and Grace, even the most hardcore Rihanna fans would disagree with that.
