Oooh! shocked.gif

Adele's 21 also overtook Michael Jacksons, Bad this week!

http://www.theofficialcharts.com/chart-new...lbums-chart907/
Adele overtakes Michael Jackson in all-time biggest selling albums chart
28/02/2012

The Official Charts Company can today reveal that sales of Adele’s 21 have overtaken those of Michael Jackson’s Bad in the UK.

Adele’s second album, 21, smashed the 4 million sales barrier after her BRITs performance last week and went on to bag the Number 1 spot on the Official Albums Chart for its 21st non-consecutive week at the summit. It has now sold nearly 61,000 more copies than The King Of Pop’s classic 1987 album, Bad.

Released on January 24, 2011, 21 has spent 57 weeks on the Official Albums Chart and has never left the Top 10. In just over a year it has sold over 4,020,000 copies, making it not only the biggest selling album of the 21st Century, but also the eighth biggest selling album of all time. If 21’s post-BRITs momentum continues, in the next few weeks it could also eclipse sales of Pink Floyd’s 1973 album Dark Side Of the Moon (7) and Dire Straits’ 1985 album, Brothers In Arms (6).


01 GREATEST HITS – QUEEN (5,863,000)
02 SGT PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND – THE BEATLES (5,044,000)
03 GOLD: GREATEST HITS – ABBA (4,989,000)
04 WHAT'S THE STORY MORNING GLORY – OASIS (4,517,000)
05 THRILLER - MICHAEL JACKSON (4,248,000)
06 BROTHERS IN ARMS - DIRE STRAITS (4,152,000)
07 THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON - PINK FLOYD (4,114,000)
08 21 – ADELE (4,020,000)
09 BAD - MICHAEL JACKSON (3,959,000)
10 GREATEST HITS II – QUEEN (3,887,000)

More Adele again on Idol tonight (West Coast show is only half an hour in).

They can't get enough of her. Randy already has named dropped her to Erika. haha.gif

And she's on her way to her 23rd week at #1: w00t.gif

http://www.hitsdailydouble.com/news/rumormill.cgi

ONE DAYS: Look for Adele's 21 to spend her 23rd week atop the album charts next week, and it might be her last one for now with Columbia labelmate Bruce Springsteen’s Wrecking Ball set to hit retail next Tuesday (3/6). The only new release this week that initially appears to be higher than 15k is WZRD, an alternative rock duo consisting of Kid Cudi and producer Dot da Genius, on Kanye West’s G.blink.gif.D. label through Universal Republic, which will land in the 70-80k range. Album sales were down 18% vs. last week, down 3% vs. the same week last year and up 3% year to date. Track sales were down 13% vs. last week, up 6% vs. the same week last year and up 7% year to date. TEA sales were down 17% vs. last week, flat vs. the same week last year and up 5% year to date. (2/29p)

Adele's '21': Longest-Running No. 1 Album Since 'Purple Rain'
by Keith Caulfield, L.A. | February 29, 2012 11:00 EST

IPB Image

Not unexpectedly, Adele's "21" album spends a 22nd week atop the Billboard 200 chart, selling 297,000 (down 59%) according to Nielsen SoundScan. It's now the longest-running No. 1 since Prince & the Revolution's "Purple Rain" soundtrack scored 24 weeks at No. 1 in 1984 and 1985.


This is also "21's" ninth consecutive week at No. 1 -- the most in-a-row frames at No. 1 since the "Titanic" soundtrack racked 14-straight in 1998.

"21" -- released just over a year ago in the U.S. -- has now sold 7.65 million in the U.S. Of that figure, 1.83 million were shifted in 2012.

Adele has a second album in the top 10 this week, as her first set, "19," descends 4-7 with 39,000 (down 56%).

As this week's sales charts reflect the week (ending Feb. 26) following the busy Grammy Awards-fueled frame (ending Feb. 19), we see a lot of albums collapse in sales after a fast rise last week. Like the two Adele albums or the Civil Wars' "Barton Hollow" (10-31 with 15,000; down 48%) for example.

The late Whitney Houston's "Whitney: the Greatest Hits" holds at No. 2 with 174,000 (down less than 1%). Meanwhile, her single "I Will Always Love You" slides 2-13 on the Digital Songs chart with 101,000 downloads sold (down 72%).

As physical stock of Houston's albums are finally reaching retail outlets, we see some of her older catalog sets make moves up the list. "The Bodyguard" soundtrack, for one, rallies 38-6 (47,000; up 176%) while her "Whitney Houston" album motors 37-9 (30,000; up 72%). Since her death on Feb. 11, the bulk of her album sales have come from digital downloads, as most retailers didn't have physical copies of her albums on-hand.

The band fun. has a banner week on the Billboard 200 as its second album, "Some Nights," debuts at No. 3 with 70,000 sold. Their new album sold almost as much as their last set has sold in total (74,000).

Their debut set, "Aim and Ignite," debuted and peaked at No. 71 on the Billboard 200 in 2009, and has sold 74,000 to date. This week, it re-enters the chart at No. 116 with 5,000 (up 42%).

Fun. is basking in the success of the single "We Are Young" (featuring Janelle Monae), which is featured in Chevy's 2012 Sonic TV commercial. The song sells 291,000 downloads this week, returning it to No. 1 (6-1) on the Digital Songs chart (up 19%).

Back in the top 10, Tyga's debut studio album "Careless World: Rise of the Last King," starts at No. 4 with 61,000. The set's first week release was bungled a bit, courtesy of a sample-clearance issue. A good three or four days of the album's first-week sales were mostly driven by downloads (83% of its total), as the album had to be re-shipped to retailers after its sample of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech was found to be uncleared.

Alternative hip-hop act Chiddy Bang bows in the top 10 with its debut album, "Breakfast," starting at No. 8 with 31,000 -- nearly all of that downloads. The set was exclusively available in the iTunes Store last week, which also offered the album's "Handclaps & Guitars" as its free single of the week. "Breakfast" became available to all retailers on Feb. 28, a week after its iTunes launch.

Rounding out the top 10 on the albums chart this week are "Now 41" (3-5 with 54,000; down 43%) and the "2012 Grammy Nominees" compilation (5-10 with 29,000; down 66%).

Over on the Digital Songs chart, the aforementioned fun. return to No. 1 with "We Are Young" (featuring Janelle Monae) with 291,000 sold (up 19%). Last week's topper, Katy Perry's "Part of Me," falls to No. 4 in its second week with 187,000 (down 55%).

Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" rebounds 5-2 with 241,000 (down 4%) while the Wanted's "Glad You Came" zooms 19-3 with 188,000 (up 87%). The latter's gain is likely owed to the cast of "Glee" covering the tune on the Feb. 21 edition of the Fox series.

Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain" slips 4-5 (167,000; down 34%) while B.o.B bounds straight in at No. 6 with "So Good" (164,000). Nicki Minaj's "Starships" is steady at No. 7 for a second week (155,000; down 24%) while Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" (featuring Kimbra) flies into the top 10 -- climbing 17-8 (134,000; up 17%).

LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It" is up one position to No. 9 with 113,000 (down 17%) while Chris Brown's "Turn Up the Music" falls a place to No. 10 in its sophomore frame with 112,000 (down 37%).

Just outside the top 10, Carrie Underwood arrives at No. 12 with her new single "Good Girl," selling 108,000 downloads. It enters the tally after only three days of sales, as it was released on Friday, Feb. 24 -- and the tracking week ended on Sunday, Feb. 26.

Overall album sales in this past chart week (ending Feb. 26) totaled 6.31 million units, down 18% compared to the sum last week (7.72 million) and down 3% compared to the comparable sales week of 2011 (6.50 million). Year to date album sales stand at 48.01 million, up 3% compared to the same total at this point last year (46.45 million).

Digital track sales this past week totaled 28.13 million downloads, down 13% compared to last week (32.28 million) and up 6% stacked next to the comparable week of 2011 (26.48 million). Year to date track sales are at 230.92 million, up 7% compared to the same total at this point last year (215.17 million).

Next week's Billboard 200 competes with the same week in 2011 when: Adele's "21" held at No. 1 for a second week, selling 168,000 (down 52%). Marsha Ambrosious' "Late Nights & Early Mornings" debuted at No. 2 with 96,000.

What’s Adele’s Next Move After Storming the Grammys?
'She has a choice of what to do. Her vocal cords aren't going to get in the way,' says doctor


February 29, 2012 11:30 AM ET

In January, Adele made one of the most important decisions of her career: While recovering from surgery to remove a polyp from her vocal cords, she agreed to perform her biggest hit, "Rolling in the Deep," during the Grammy Awards. Even for the brightest new star the music business has produced in years, the move paid off in a major way: Following the death of Whitney Houston, 40 million people tuned in to the February 12th broadcast, the show's largest audience since 1984. Adele's bravura performance and charmingly plain-spoken speeches ("I've got a bit o' snot!") stole the show, leading to a record-breaking 730,000 fans buying her smash album, 21, the following week. "The Whitney thing definitely added far more poignancy to the whole evening, but it was a dream come true for us," says her manager, Jonathan Dickins. "Adele's natural, but it was nervous for her. It takes guts and a certain character to go back in after not singing publicly for five months, and come back for the first time and do the Grammys.". . . .

Adele's 'Rolling in the Deep' Now Biggest-Selling Digital Song by a Woman
by Keith Caulfield, L.A. | March 02, 2012 3:36 EST

IPB Image

Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" has become the biggest-selling digital song of all time by a woman in the U.S. -- and the second-biggest overall.

With another 99,000 sold in the week ending Feb. 26 according to Nielsen SoundScan, "Rolling in the Deep's" cumulative sales rise to 6.68 million, surpassing Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" (6.62 million) to become tops among all female-led tunes.

"Rolling in the Deep" is now second among all digital songs, only to the Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling" (7.82 million). "Poker Face" falls to third place.

Since SoundScan began tracking download sales in 2003, a total of 26 songs have shifted at least 5 million in the U.S.

As for the rest of the top 10 downloads of all time: Lady Gaga's "Just Dance" is the fourth best-seller, with 6.53 million, while the Black Eyed Peas' "Boom Boom Pow" is fifth with 6.34 million. LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem" is sixth (6.26 million), Flo Rida's "Low" is seventh (6.23 million), Ke$ha's "Tik Tok" is in eighth place (6.22 million) and Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours" is ninth (6.02 million). Rounding out the top 10 at No. 10 is Taio Cruz's "Dynamite" with 5.90 million.
