CHART NEWS: Adele Back on Top of UK’s Album Chart

Adele has reclaimed the top spot on the UK album charts after losing her crown to the Foo Fighters last week. The soul songstress’ latest album “21,” made history after spending a record-breaking 11-weeks at number one and now the set is back on top of the countdown after a one week slip. “21” sold its two millionth U.K. copy last Tuesday (19), but its weekly sales dipped below 100,000 for the first time last week, at 91,000.

She released “21” in January this year and It is now UK’s biggest-selling album download of all time. In its 11th week at the top of the charts, 21 set the record for the longest-running consecutive number one studio album for a solo artist. She is the first living artist to achieve two top five hits in both the UK singles and albums chart simultaneously since The Beatles in 1964.

Remaining solid at No. 3 is Adele’s debut effort ’19,’ while newcomer Jessie J’s “Who You Are” climbed 7-4 as its new single “Nobody’s Perfect” made its top 75 debut at No. 32 and Rihanna’s “Loud” came in at fifth place.
