Adele still No. 1 on Album Chart

Posted by at 12:10 pm on March 1, 2012

Three new albums and fans of the late Whitney Houston were unable to oust Adele from her top spot on the Billboard 200 chart on Wednesday, as the British singer notched a 22nd week at No. 1 with her Grammy-winning record “21.”

The multi-platinum “21” has sold more than 7.6 million copies in the U.S. since its release in February 2012 and continued strong sales with 296,000 copies snapped up by listeners last week.

The last album to sit at No. 1 for more than 22 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart was Prince & The Revolution’s “Purple Rain,” which topped the chart between 1984 and 1985.
