Chart Check: Adele’s ’25’ Notches 7th Week At #1 On Billboard 200

Published: Wednesday 13th Jan 2016 by Rashad

She may have said “goodbye” to the perch of the Hot 100 this week thanks to Justin Bieber, but on the album side of charts, there’s no dethroning Adele.

Indeed, shifting another 194,000 units (164k pure sales), the ‘Hello’ hitmaker greeted yet another week atop the Billboard 200. Bringing her overall count to 7.6 million in 7 weeks, ’25’s reign over the album charts comes as the longest consecutive run by a female in nearly 30 years.

Billboard reports:

“…25 becomes the first album by a woman to spend its first seven weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart since 1987 (and the first since Nielsen Music’s electronically-scanned point-of-sale data began powering the chart in 1991).

The only other album by a woman to chart its first seven weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 was Whitney Houston’s second album, Whitney, which bowed atop the list dated June 17, 1987, and ruled for 11 straight frames (through the chart dated Sept. 5).”

No stranger to ruffling the feathers of Whitney Houston fans (click here to read more on that), only time will tell if the Brit-born diva will be snatching another title from the legend’s list of accolades.  Until then, get your weekly Billboard 200 and Hot 100 chart check below:

        “When she makes a dumb video with 6 doors and then delays an album because nobody is checking for”

        Though i’m a Rihanna-Fan, i just had to laugh out loud, as this sentence Is nothing But the Truth. Those anti-videos Are just so dumb and unnecessary. They bring nothing New. No infos, no snippets, just Rihanna Running through Some rooms, inking a fat guy and looking At Walls…

    • Tyler Makiavelli January 13, 2016

      Where’s Anti?

      • Avi January 13, 2016

        It’s obvious that Rihanna using hiding, waiting for Adele to take a bathroom break so she can sneak in and throw Anti out without it getting pummeled as hard. That talentless ET looking s*** don’t want none of 25.

      • Avi January 13, 2016

        * is in hiding

    • RASHAD January 13, 2016

      2015 wasn’t Rihanna’s year & 2016 won’t her year either! Beyoncé didn’t make any declarations or promises to her fans unlike Rihscheduled! Tired of you kids using Adele to diss Beyoncé as if Adele not slaying Rihanna on the Billboard Hot 100 & Billboard 200 album charts!


    • RihYonce January 13, 2016

      Beyonce hasn’t released music yet dumb ass

    • King B January 14, 2016

      #166 BEYONCÉ (104 Weeks)
      #178 IASF ( 95 Weeks)
      Did Rihanna has album that spent 100 weeks? Lana had one(200 weeks)Beyoncé had 2. Katy had 3.Gaga had one. And IASF gonna be her 3rd

    • Rosie January 14, 2016

      and I thought the GP!!!!11 was THIRSTY for Rihanna to bring the b0ps!!12 in 2k15

      • King B January 14, 2016

        Did you notice how Rihanna and Aaliyah never re entered BB200? Like their literally just out after one year. And they said Self titled is hype when Born This Way and The 20/20 Experience just out of the charts after one year.

      • Rosie January 14, 2016

        The self-read. Even Ultraviolence charted for over a year. Honeymoon would have a legit chance of charting that long too if it wasn’t for SPS.

    • XYZ January 14, 2016

      2016 Is two weeks old. Nobody knows whose year this will be. But it will def Be adele’s year as well, as she’s on a sold out tour

  5. beykim loves bieber one direction beyonce miley and gaga January 13, 2016

    So proud of my babies…Justin is making my heart melt and Made in the A.M… I watched them grow up.Im emotional

    • Selenator January 13, 2016

      But sis, why is Justin in a relationship with Hailey but STILL liking pics of Selena on Insta? Why is he STILL bringing her up in interviews? That Mexican p*ssy has him chained!

      • Penny Sparrow January 14, 2016

        That Mexican pxssy is the reason why he is still RELEVANT you think he’s going to let it go just like that?

  6. Lou January 13, 2016

    Oh, please…

    Whitney Houston will forever remain a VOCAL LEGEND and POP ICON whom broke records, set records and cemented her status when Adele in Diapers. She will never be above or beyond Whitney regardless of the records she takes that once belonged to her – records are meant to be broken essentially – and the same goes for Mariah, Celine, M.J and whomever else.

    Anyway, BOWIE is snatching the #1 spot next week and purpose is already selling more than 25 in the mid week charts this week so Bieber may be #1 the week after or so. I think 25 will stall at 7.5 – 8.5 million for a few months now unless she releases another single and it becomes a HIT!

  7. Ciah’s Turtle January 13, 2016

    Nice to see Fetty and Bryson up in the top 10.

  8. RASHAD January 13, 2016

    Congrats congrats and more congrats!

  9. .:: Centurion ::. January 13, 2016

    She’s coming for Whitney’s record too.

  10. Selenator January 13, 2016

    Ugh, can Same Old Love crack the top 5 already? The Fetty Wap remix and SNL performance should do the trick. SNL will probably bring Hands To Myself into the top 20 as well. Btw, TGJ should cover Bryson Tiller more. He’s like a mix of August Alsina and Jhene Aiko.

  11. Tyler Makiavelli January 13, 2016

    “I thought 2016 is Beyonces year according to the delusion in the other post”

    According to you, I thought that Anti was supposed to be Rihanna’s “Ray of Light” moment…..

    Lovebird says:

    Janet Jackson may have had her most iconic era after 4 albums but Ray of Light > anything Janet Jackson has ever and will ever release.

    In fact in the whole 90s era, there’s not a single album that comes close to Madonna’s Ray of light in terms of quality, production and impact. This is why Janet, despite having more talent than Madonna lost to her and is also why Beyonce will lose to Rihanna.

    As Rated R proved, when it comes to a quality project, Rihanna shits on Beyonce any day and Rihanna’s Ray of light is coming, I cannot wait for it.


  13. Stephon Maurice Jackson January 13, 2016

    Adele slaying the charts & sales as usual… Congrats for the 12341234134th time.

  14. Sandra January 13, 2016

    David Bowie will knock Adele off the #1 spot both in US and UK next week.

    Where is Confident?????

    • Christina Aguilera January 14, 2016

      At the bottom of the charts

  19. King B January 14, 2016

    I bought Rated R, and I can’t at the fact that the Navy call it’s her best album when it’s just ok. And Photograph is thevworst song on it.Wait ur turn is another trash, as well as Rockstar 101.

    • JOHNVIDAL January 14, 2016

      Sadly for her, it probably is her best. Yep, that´s all she´s been able to do 🙂 (well, her team I mean).

  20. Rosie January 14, 2016

    ugh WHY the f*** is Twenty One Pilots so big now? Literally the soundtrack for special snowflake white girls who weigh 240 lbs, sit on tumblr all day, and still shop at Hot Topic.

  21. King B January 14, 2016

    I see someone mentioned Christina as Pigtina. The singer that IT called pig had make Aaliyah a non existent in the early 00’s. Ps: #114 Born To Die (206 weeks). Album that outsold Aaliyah discography in UK.

    • ? January 14, 2016

      You and Fag111 are no different but I guess one has to stoop down to his incompetent level just to gain recognition and relevance.

      • King B January 14, 2016

        Whatever. At least i never make fun of people’s name. Only debate about their music and sales. Bye.

  22. JOHNVIDAL January 14, 2016

    Well, I think people don´t understand what breaking a record is. Nobody had done this in the last 30 years, since whitney (female debuting at #1 and spending 7 consecutive weeks at the top). But TGJ: she has not broken that Whitney record (still) since Whitney stayed 11 weeks (consecutive) right after debuting at #1. So she HAS NOT BROKEN the record.

    That Whitney Houston record is beyond words by the way. With that second album of hers she was THE FIRST FEMALE in music history to DEBUT at #1 on the Billboard 200. Not even a white woman or anything (not even Barbra, or Madonna). No woman before her. What I didn´t know is that she stayed there 11 consecutive WEEKS right after the debut. Which is all kinds of incredible. So no woman had ever done that and she goes and does it and stays there for a record breaking 11 first weeks, a record still not broken 30 years later??? A motherfucking legendary queen. Not to mention there was real HUGE competition 30 years ago. While now it´s only Adele doing it.

    That said great for Adele, what she has done these last 5 years is amazing. Nobody thought we would ever see this again. I would have prefered to see it happening to an even more gifted artist (musically) than her. But it´s ok.

  23. Mariah The Legend January 14, 2016

    when will beyonce? kiii

  24. another taken day something ain’t wrong January 14, 2016

    Let see how long adele last number one for whole year of this year month to months
