Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Adele’s ’21’ Is Now the Longest Charting Female Album In History

Published: Tuesday 11th Apr 2017 by Rashad

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

Via Billboard:

“…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.”

 This week the album notched its 320th week on the charts dated April 22, 2017.

      About time. I was tired of seeing a bunch of women dominate. Their catty fans are the worst.

    Love her. This is a genuine soul right here. And it shows in her music. It’s why she’s so successful. Not taking anything away from other artists but I’ve seen her live and she’s all heart. At the concert, everyone sang every lyric to every song. It was awesome. There’s more to putting on a show than just dropping it like it’s hot.

    No matter who you stan for there is no denying that Adele is THE queen of our time. Unmatched critical acclaim, historic record setting commercial success, all while remaining controversy free puts her on a whole other level. To think differently is to be delusional.
