Chart Check: Adele Returns To #1 On Billboard 200 For 8th Week

Adele-Hello-video thatgrapejuice

She may have seen her latest album, ’25,’ take a two week hiatus from the top, but this week’s refreshed chart will see powerhouse diva Adele say hello to the perch of the Billboard 200 yet again.

The revisit, which will give the songstress her 8th week at the chart’s summit, came after being ousted by David Bowie‘s posthumously released project two weeks ago.  Now, after logging some time at the chart’s runner-up position, Addy is back at it with an impressive 8th week.

Tuck in below to see how many units she moved to reclaim the throne:

8th week sales:  116,000

Via Billboard:

“The album earned 116,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Jan. 28, according to Nielsen Music (down 21 percent).

In the latest tracking week, 25 sold another 97,000 in pure album sales (down 20 percent), which brings its cumulative sum to 7.94 million in the U.S. It is likely 25 will reach 8 million sold in the next week.”


As she etches closer to diamond status, fans expect Rihanna‘s latest opus – ‘Anti’ – to bring yet another disruption to the ‘Rolling in the Deep’ singer’s reign atop the albums’ chart.  How long she’ll be able to hold Addy at bay, however, is what we’re most keen to see.

    YAY! CONGRATS!! She’ll be diamond by summer.

    Where’s Work?

    • 378 January 31, 2016

      Wheres Jackie?

      • #JACKIE January 31, 2016

        Not scamming to get a certification.

      • HailBeysus January 31, 2016


      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 31, 2016

        @Jackie C-Loser wouldn’t even be offered the chance to give anything away for free, especially since she’s begging for 5k per month child support payments from a trap star.

      • #JACKIE January 31, 2016

        Sis. Ciara’s brand is booming and she doesn’t have to lie or cheat to do so. ?

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 31, 2016

        “Ciara’s brand is booming” Now that’s some comedy sh*t right there. The fact that she is a beard and wears a ball gown to sing the national anthem at a college game is the evidence of pure desperation. At this point, Tinashe is proving herself to be a more relevant artist.

    • King Mark111 /.\ January 31, 2016

      It’ll be on next week’s chart dummy. But Wackie been out for almost a year and it’s nowhere to be found on the top 200. 200! Nor a single in the hit 100.

      • #JACKIE January 31, 2016

        Where are the predictions Markisha since you have an excuse for everything??

    • ? February 1, 2016

      Did cici get dropped from her label. #NoShadeThough

  3. metzo January 31, 2016

    So Rihanna is not debuting at #1? Im confused

    • HailBeysus January 31, 2016

      Kiii Honey everyone is confused by that thot and her scamming teams ways. This whole era is a mess. RIAA and now it seems billboard are cutting corners for that hoeee. She released 2 days before the tracking week ended yet she hasn’t debuted om BB200 yet Bey released 3 days before and they counted it hmmmm something doesn’t add up.

    • King Mark111 /.\ January 31, 2016

      This is last week’s sales, learn how to count days. Has it been 7 days of assassination from ANTi yet? No, you have 5 more days. 🙂

      • OMG Logic!!! January 31, 2016

        Assassination of any shred of credibility RihGoat’s career had left?

  4. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 31, 2016

    I hope Adele enjoys this last week at the top spot, because ANTI is coming for the blood straight off the cover to the #1 spot next week.

    • #JACKIE January 31, 2016

      Your confidence is inspiring ❤️

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 31, 2016

        No need to have confidence when iTunes has it comfortably resting at #1

      • #JACKIE January 31, 2016

        You better find a local church and plant yourself at the altar because Anti needs prayer. For your sake it better debut at #1 with at least 500K or the Navy will never be able to show their faces around these parts again.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 31, 2016

        @Jackie Who in the honest fvck are you to talk about numbers when Ciara sold less than the worth on your EBT card? Let’s talk about them digits

      • #JACKIE January 31, 2016

        Or nah? Let’s focus on Anti’s numbers … Or lack thereof. Or maybe we can focus on Adele’s annihilation. E.T.hanna doesn’t stand a chance. Seethe!

      • King Mark111 /.\ January 31, 2016

        But it’s been a decade since Ciara topped an album chart. ?

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 31, 2016

        You’re so worried about Rihanna’s numbers I’d believe that you’re navy. The album has only officially been out for the 3 days and you’re like a dog begging for biscuit. Be a good boy and learn how to sit

      • #JACKIE January 31, 2016

        And Rihanna has done it ONCE in 11 years and will never do so again. I see why you’re mad.

    • Joenysmith January 31, 2016

      Hahha you funny rihanna will be there one week thats it then Adele will be back at the top. You Rihyawnna fans are reaching too high keep dreaming.

      • #JACKIE January 31, 2016

        Their delusions of grandeur are pure hilarity sis.

    • OMG Logic!!! January 31, 2016

      Delusion at its finest. And you tried it with Floptunes numbers.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 31, 2016

        I didn’t try anything. Log on to iTunes and check for your own damn self.

  5. Rosie January 31, 2016

    HDD still has no estimates for Anti, something’s fishy
    25 will probably sell 300K+ after the Grammys.

    • HailBeysus January 31, 2016

      Right!!! Like Wtf its been put since Wednesday and still no predictions!

      • blue January 31, 2016

        didnt the album only come out on friday? Why are you so obsessed with anti, one way or another you will know the numbers next week. Stop seeming so pressed and wait! You are worse than the navy

      • HailBeysus January 31, 2016

        Blue gurrrl im gunna need your ass to get gone. Aren’t you the same bitxh that was brought to tears because i dragged you and said you were done with me??? ???? get to stepping please!

      • Rosie January 31, 2016

        They usually have sales THE DAY AFTER release.
        Must be keeping them hid like when Bieber released Journals.

      • blue February 1, 2016

        you wish you had dragged me. I said i was done with you because of the disgusting and racist comments you made. But thanks for reminding me who it was i had said that to.

      • HailBeysus February 1, 2016

        Lmao exactly you was dragged and brought to tears hoeee. Your always dragged. Whosbad and King B scalp the shiiit out of you! You try so hard to be Navi, but they all stear the ship away from you. You can’t hold your own in an argument LMFAO Glad you realized now get back to finding out that solution on trying to feed that starving CONTINENT ?????

    • #JACKIE January 31, 2016

      Camp Fenty are busy trying to pay them off and buy up the rest of those albums. Is the tour sold out yet?

      • HailBeysus January 31, 2016

        Lmao watch Hoeannas networth take a dip when Forbes release 2017 networths

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 31, 2016

        @Jackie Does Ciara even have a tour to go on? @Hail I know you’ve seen the 103434 businesses she started this year; she’s got them Hollywood,big movie checks.

      • #JACKIE January 31, 2016

        From the looks of it Riri won’t either. #TumbleweedsAtTicketmaster

      • Rosie January 31, 2016

        kii Barclays still isn’t sold out
        Halsey sold out Madison Square Garden a few miles away like 8 months in advance.

  6. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 31, 2016

    The hive is so thirsty Waiting for Anti predictions ???. She’s been sitting pretty at the top spot on iTunes. + she’ll sell more when it gets released physically

    • #JACKIE January 31, 2016

      Where the f*** did your dusty ass come from? Did you take a break from your many troll accounts?

    • Umm January 31, 2016

      Umm weren’t you banned to the pits of shame when The Elusive Chanteuse bombed? Back to your cave of embarrassment Canadian çünt!

      • OMG Logic!!! January 31, 2016

        Elusive Chanteuse did fine for an album with zero promo. Besides the Asians made sure she made coin by giving her a sellout tour.

      • Grande the Way January 31, 2016

        Zero promo?

      • JOHNVIDAL February 1, 2016

        Yes, less promo for the whole album release than what Ariana got for “Focus” alone… and still flopped and in her 20s and only 3rd release. Now stfu LOL

  7. DIABETES UNBOTHERED January 31, 2016

    Lol imma be laughing so hard if 25 is #1 next week. Where is UNA PART 2s sales predictions anyway? They posted Adeles the next morning almost 3 days latter and nothing.. Roc must be deviating sum plan to get Billboard to cheat or the label must be toobusy buying copies.

    • OMG Logic!!! January 31, 2016

      That would be the Navy would have a Titanic sized meltdown. The people need to start a #Buy25StopAnti movement so Adele sells the few copies needed to keep Anti at #2.

  8. King Mark111 /.\ January 31, 2016

    Look at I Speak Truth avi looking at Jackie wackie comment. Lol, perfect reaction.

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 31, 2016

      Hahaha! That’s exactly why I have it

  9. DIABETES UNBOTHERED January 31, 2016

    ANTIbiotics is just a Heavier more noltalgic R&B Sonically IMPAIRED version of UNA. 6/10

    • OMG Logic!!! January 31, 2016

      ANTI is generic and sounds like an hour of filler. Deleted that sh it asap after listening to it. Not from FLOPDAL mind you.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 31, 2016

        It’s probably filler to you since the lyrics are more profound for your brain to comprehend. That’s why you stan for a blonde ratchet in a leotard who talks about “spinning while their hands are up”

    • blue February 1, 2016

      are you gonna buy the album?seeing as to how you seem to actually like it.

  10. Grande the Way January 31, 2016

    Anti is #1 on itunes. It’s most likely going to be #1 on Billboard too. It will probably sell at least 100k

    • #JACKIE January 31, 2016

      Kiiiii not her being outsold by Ariana.

      • Weezy Tha Goat February 1, 2016

        But Ciara gets outsold by everybody.

  11. Rosie January 31, 2016

    not Frih sucking Drake’s d*** for life only to already go below Stressed Out on iTunes

    • King Mark111 /.\ January 31, 2016

      Itunes is ONE store. Anyway. You’re mad because both artist are indeed and out sold UltraFlop. And your Hershey’s new fave will be a one hit wonder.

      • Rosie January 31, 2016

        no one cares
        BOTH of them can sell out tours faster than Frih
        like I told you yesterday pray to God ashANTI does Badlands numbers

      • Rosie January 31, 2016

        And iTunes is like 80%+ of digital sales in the US, plus the current digital sales #1 is selling like 130-150K weekly.
        The excuses.

  12. #JACKIE January 31, 2016

    Kiiiii @ “Frih”

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy February 1, 2016

      Shouldn’t you be helping your fave get 106 & Park back on the air? You know since it was the last time and platform your fave was relevant. Those where the good ole days huh #PrincessOfCrunk

  13. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 31, 2016

    I knew when ANTI came out that it would have a ripple effect to the ends of the earth; however, the concern, interest and meltdowns by other fans are monstrous. Who knew releasing a non-pop album would make such an impact.

  14. SWISH January 31, 2016

    the article is about adele and 25 and the hive and the one fan ciara has can only talk about ANTI … LOL

    • King Mark111 /.\ January 31, 2016

      It’s ANTi Assassination week. They’re having an awful week eating their words from all of last year.

  15. HailBeysus January 31, 2016

    Kiii if Beyonce who sings about s** with her HUSBAND is a ratchet. Than wtf is Hoeanna? A lab rat hooked on coke ????

    • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy January 31, 2016

      Hey she might be hooked on coke, but at least Rihanna is also hooked on phonics! This b**** is duuummb, and dirty too… Look at that room! I hope Blue doesn’t live like this

      • HailBeysus January 31, 2016

        An interview from 10000 years ago okay Speak. Give us something current.

      • King Mark111 /.\ February 1, 2016

        Counting is not your strong point, isn’t it?

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy February 1, 2016

        As that all you have to say for this? This is a grown ass woman here, but ok

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 1, 2016

        LMFAOO! @ “hooked on phonics” ??

    • King B February 1, 2016

      Hailbeysus, do you know that Aaliyah’s first two albums only went Gold in UK? That’s about 100k. Gaga that he called Gags, Christina that he called Pigtina, Katy and Lana that he make fun of for being Grammyless outsold her EFFORTLESSLY with one album. And guess what? Their albums were not released in the 90’s. Not to mention, Beyoncé has 2. DC had two selling 900k and I believe it’s over 1 mil by now.

  16. HailBeysus January 31, 2016

    SCREAMING so the Hive are eating their own words now? Bish where??? The slavi was proudly dragging Jay for letting Samsung buy 1 million of his albums. The slavi dragged Gaga for her .99 album. They called Beyoncé’s Surprise drop a gimmick. Hoeanna just did all three in one and than further by clinging to Tidal by giving away Samsung purchased 2 Month subscriptions. LMFAO Now the SLAVI want to stand by her and say she did a bold and power move. Saying she changed the game kiii bish where??? Not critic has given her credit for changing the game. Everyone is just calling it a Brilliant business move and masking the floppage. Lets not also forget now the Slavi are proudly saying she’s not doing it for #1. She’s doing it for the fans. Hasn’t the Hive been saying this since 2011 yet y’all still talked shiiit DEATH!!!! Always contradicting jumping ship forging receipts and straight up lying FAGKIESHA!!!

    • Yawn January 31, 2016

      This post is about Adele you f**?

      • HailBeysus January 31, 2016

        Get tf to stepping! I didn’t bring Hoeanna up!

    • blue February 1, 2016

      and the hive was defending jay….shouldnt you not be as hyprocritical as you accuse the navy being and defend rihanna too then? Or atleast defend jay again because from what i hear he fought for the samsung sponsorship

      • HailBeysus February 1, 2016

        How is the Hive being hypocritical! Yesss Beys fans and Jays fans stayed defending. The whole argument is The Slavi are the ones being hypocrites. They talked all that s*** about Jay Bey and Gaga even throughout 2015. Yet when she does it its okay. Nope, that s*** ain’t gunna slide that easy we gone drag clock and laugh!

  17. Barb-wire January 31, 2016

    I just realized “Frih”(thanks Rosie) made a surprise release! I don’t remember her giving a release date, what happened Frih? Were you BeyInspired?

  18. Selenator January 31, 2016

    Lol yall want Rih to fail so bad. Ant’s metacritic score keeps going up and her album is slaying iTunes worldwide. Unlike Jay Z, Rih will probably end up backing that platinum certification with actual sales. I’m not here for the bandwagon hate

    • HailBeysus February 1, 2016

      The slavi said it was up to 72 yesterday. Its at 70 today. Guess it went down lol!

    • HailBeysus February 1, 2016

      Also wtf are you talking about MCHG is CERTIFIED double platinum.

  19. WINTZ February 1, 2016


    Lol why am I getting that Brady Brunch iconic tease?

    It’s like… ANTI! ANTI! ANTI! Lol ANTI taking ovaaaaaa!!!

    *sings* We ready for de road *s*** waste whine* #WORK

  20. Barb B**** February 1, 2016

    Why are HDD taking so long with these damn antichrist predictions though. I can’t wait for that post.

  21. .:: Centurion ::. February 1, 2016

    If they’re not checking iTunes, they’re checking HDD. If they’re not checking HDD, they’re checking Metacritic. ANTI got these lessors scurred. They want Rihanna to fail so so bad. ????

  22. King B February 1, 2016

    I remember they keep updating Beyoncé’s sales. I mean HDD.

  23. .:: Centurion ::. February 1, 2016

    Oh Ciara… Where should I start?
    No tour (#TheatreStatus)
    • No baby daddy (the only Future Ciara had in the music industry left her too)
    • No edges
    • No walls (the NBA’s biggest “cheerleader”)
    • No memorable hit
    • No vocal talent or highlight
    • No memorable album
    • No success
    • No career highlight
    • No hype
    • No legacy

  24. .:: Centurion ::. February 1, 2016

    Oh Beybøla… Where do I begin? This should be punishment enough:
    Rihanna is the only artist in history to surpass 200 million record sales before the age of 30.
    In addition to:

    • BEYHIVE4EVER February 1, 2016

      b**** I hope you DIE!!!!!!!!

  25. Lady wonder February 1, 2016

    Lol @ y’all believing 1M real people downloaded that album, on trial at that.

    • Lady wonder February 1, 2016


  26. Lady wonder February 1, 2016

    Nobody is waiting for rih to fail, she already did. A pity plaque doesn’t change that.

  27. Barb B**** February 1, 2016

    She’s probably paying them to make up a false receipt. Like she paid for her platinum plaque.

  28. JOHNVIDAL February 1, 2016

    When is Rihanna ever going to have a huge era? Oh wait it never happened to date so it will be impossinle from now on since her popularity is declining. The real first week sales will be very interesting 🙂 What´s the most she has ever done… 200k? lmao

  29. What now February 1, 2016

    The real KIIII is how u all are listening to top “an untalented artist” on a “flop album”. You are all fans. Just admit it and be on with your day.
