Chart Check: Adele’s ’25’ Set To Return To #1 On Billboard 200

Adele-Hello-video thatgrapejuice

After taking mini-vacations from the #1 position on the Billboard 200 (thanks to Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Future,David Bowie, and more), it appears chart champion Adele is set to revisit the top spot.

Indeed, showing resiliency akin to its predecessor ’21’ (which spent a whopping 24 weeks at the top), ’25’s rebound to the chart’s summit came courtesy of her well-received performance of ‘All I Ask’ at the 2016 Grammys.

It appears not even a technical glitch and a few misfired notes would keep fans away from putting the album back to #1 for its 9th consecutive week.  Tuck in below to see just how many units were shifted:

Via Billboard:

After a two-week vacation from the No. 1 slot on the Billboard 200 albums chart,Adele’s 25 is back on top for a ninth nonconsecutive week. The set rises 2-1 with 151,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Feb. 18, according to Nielsen Music (up 25 percent). It sold 125,000 in pure album sales (up 23 percent).

Check back on Tuesday when we provide the full Billboard 200 chart check.

      When will the 2nd biggest UK act after Adele Cherry Coke?

      • Cherylsoldierr February 22, 2016

        The irony when your global fave is doing less than 100k a week.

  2. HailBeysus February 21, 2016

    Damn it ADELE!!! YOU NEED TO CHILL!!! Lol!!!

    • HailBeysus February 22, 2016

      Also OMG did y’all see that video Billboard posted of Kris Jenner being booed for the gawds!! So disrespectful! Im no saint but damn! She looked like she wanted to cry, poor thing.

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy February 22, 2016

        Yo I just watched it, and that was crazy. She must feel like utter sh*t. Man I don’t think it can get much worse than that. It just amazes me how them Kartrashians manage to stay on every news site everyday, yet they’re clearly despised.

      • Skyfall February 22, 2016

        I heard they pay/tip off paps, then sell the photos and sites like daily mail buys them, and knowing people when click and leave bad comments that’s how they remain relevant and paid

      • FAF February 23, 2016

        U just answered ur own question

  3. #JACKIE February 22, 2016

    I finally sat down and listened to the album and it’s really not that great but go head gurl.

    • Skyfall February 22, 2016

      The dulexe songs are the best.

      • Skyfall February 22, 2016


      • whenindoubtthetruthwillout February 22, 2016

        What deluxe songs? There is no deluxe version of 25!!!

    • I’m Booked February 22, 2016

      Honestly It’s A lot Better Than Anything Ciara Has Ever Whispered….

  4. truth hurts February 22, 2016

    slowly fading remember 21 post grammy boost she did 600k that week and the album was out for a year. this era was front loaded and it losing speed very quickly

    • lolz February 22, 2016

      That was when she WON all the major categories. She wasn’t nominated this year she only performed

    • ForTheLoveOf… February 22, 2016

      She won every category she was nominated in that year though + at the time I don’t believe 21 had hit 8 million copies so no it isn’t losing steam at all. She has only released 2 singles and hasn’t even begun her tour. She will 100% pass the sales of 21 with 25.

    • I’m Booked February 22, 2016

      Even If She Were Loosing Steam, She Still Out-Selling Every Female Artist In The Game Right Now

    • Rory February 22, 2016

      That’s because 21 didn’t take off as fast. 25 sold over 3.3 million the first week. 21 did over 330K first week if I’m not mistaken….. So in other words, so many ppl have the album already lol

  5. Theman February 22, 2016

    But the album is great though!

  6. Tyler Makiavelli February 22, 2016

    *claps hands*

  7. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy February 22, 2016

    This album is not good…at…all. It’s a true disappointment from 21 to be honest, but hey those white folks sure do love them some Adele

    • Arx February 22, 2016

      I think this is something that the Navy and Beyhive can agree on!!

      • iSpeakTruthNoFallacy February 22, 2016

        Look at that, we’re making strides! Oh, we also agree that Taylor Swift is a mayonaise basic b*tch

    • Thando February 22, 2016

      The irony of a rihanna fanatic evaluating the quality of another artist’s music…

    • madbrax February 22, 2016

      because she can really sing, and write her own music (and not steal it) and doesn’t have to dance b*** naked to some cheap stripper moves

    • rosy February 22, 2016

      I know white people support their own Jews Spanish but blacks they tear each other down then cry racism and inclusion whites will support even if the music sucks I have adele album and only 2 songs good the rest is trash look at ciara her fans hate on rih and ciara career in the toilet you hear that Jackie!!!!! Adele Taylor fans support each other that’s why them white girls stay winning

  8. ?Meteorite☄ February 22, 2016

    I’d say her reign is doing phenomenal, just need to release another single to keep the momentum going. I’d say something different, like we all know she can do ballads so maybe “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” or “I Miss You” or “River Lea”

  9. Frmluz February 22, 2016

    This is what happens when they over ship an album. Get in where you fit in.

  10. Weezy Tha Goat February 22, 2016

    Slay Adele.

  11. Thando February 22, 2016

    Beyonce fans are clearly pissed by this woman LMAO! The album is not great?! That is 3rd degree hater rhetoric. Let’s see if another “surprise” visual album(what the f*** is that anyway) will be beyonce’s ten million seller but I am not holding my breath. Great music getting right rewards, congratulations Adele. Second diamond album on the cards. The music speaks for itself. Its that b**** from Tottaham. Ps: STOP drinking alcohol Adele

    • Tyler Makiavelli February 22, 2016

      Which Beyonce fan said that? I’ll wait…

    • HailBeysus February 22, 2016

      Lmao clearly you’re the only one pressed. Bey on your mind! As far as i can see we are happy and cheering for Adele.

    • Royalkev February 22, 2016

      All I see are people sharing their honest opinions on ’25’ after probably being caught up by a great first single! The truth is that it’s not that great of an album! Nobody is even seething or bashing Adele. Third degree HATE is when you find somebody going off about the success that won’t be obtained by an album that’s not even released yet!

  12. lolz February 22, 2016

    Imagine Adele in a thong while sliding down a stippers pole

    • I just got DROPPED from my label. Who am I? Still can’t get it. Well, i’m #10 on a rapper’s baby mommas list . February 22, 2016

      LOL girl stop.

    • music all the way February 22, 2016

      Hahahaahahaha… No you didn’t !!

  13. Adrihanna February 22, 2016

    Wow Adele. See my fellow people of color (I’m latina…so not racist). Adele’s sales are what happen when you have a rich White and Asian fanbase lol. Kanye and Rihanna know we ain’t spending money on no album when we can get it for free.

    • ???Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans??? February 22, 2016

      “Don’t break, don’t fade.
      While we’re not real, we’re never too late. Make time. It won’t hurt. Said I’ll go now, but you said it first.”
      “I know there’s nothing that I can do to make you stay, but one thing I know that will always remain…and that’s the aftertaste.”

      • Ty February 22, 2016

        Uhhhh are those lyrics to a song? If so which?

  15. Stephon Jackson February 22, 2016

    This might be the more overrated Diamond selling album since Britney Spears… 21 actually deserved its numbers tho. 25 is a good album but not deserving all this Thriller type success. Anyways, congrats Adele.

    • JOHNVIDAL February 22, 2016

      I agree. Also about the overrated status of Britney´s diamond album lol

  16. Theman February 22, 2016

    This album deserves all of it’s success. “Thriller” has nothing to do with this album. This album has a little more variety to it then her last one, which was awesome too.. Adele is universal. No matter the creed people support the great music that they want to. Kanye/Rihanna don’t just appeal to the urban crowd..

  17. February 22, 2016

    nothing new for Adele, just another day in doing what she does.

  18. Daimler February 22, 2016

    Eh. But why not ANTI though? How come that one didn’t return to the number one spot instead? I’ll wait….

  19. JanStan February 22, 2016

    Talk about a reign that just won’t let She IS the reining queen there is NO comparison. The only battle going on is for 2nd place. Currently held by overrated Taylor…

  20. JanStan February 22, 2016

    Current Hierarchy:

    1. Adele
    2. Taylor
    3. Bey
    4. Gaga
    5. Rihanna
    6. Katy

    • JOHNVIDAL February 22, 2016

      Gaga is the most talented overall though. She´s just a real artist.

  21. yesterday was Aaliyah 37birthday to the good music February 22, 2016

    The all rounder proved his supreme athleticism in the first innings by swooping to grab a sharp, low chance off James Tredwell bowling to send back opener Kraigg Braithwaite.
