Powerhouse pop vocalist Adele says hello to yet another stunning record on the Billboard charts.
As if dominating charts with her latest album, ’25,’ in ways no other artist has this decade wasn’t enough, the singer/songwriter is leaving her female competitors in the dust yet again with the set’s predecessor, ’21.’
The 2011 album, best known for its Grammy-winning cut, ‘Rolling in the Deep,’ has rolled past legendary singer/songwriter, Carole King, for a jaw-dropping accomplishment among female artists. Tuck inside for details and see this week’s refreshed Billboard 200:
Billboard 200 This Week
“…21 surpasses Carole King’s Tapestry for the most weeks on the Billboard 200 chart for an album by a woman, as the 2011 album notches its 319th week on the list dated April 15, beating Tapestry’s 318 weeks.
21 (which is No. 103 on the latest chart) has been on the tally every week since its No. 1 debut on March 12, 2011. The album spent 24 nonconsecutive weeks at the top.
Among all albums — since the chart began publishing on a regular weekly basis in 1956 — Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon holds the record for the most weeks on the chart: 927.”
