Adele and Maroon 5 make big “Moves” on the Charts

The lady who has pretty much ruled the music world in 2011 does it again this week as Adele’s sophomore album, 21, returns to the # 1 spot on the Billboard Albums chart. This marks her 12th non-consecutive week at the summit for total U.S. sales of 2.9 million plus and is the longest running # 1 album since Santana’s Supernatural did 12 weeks in 1999/2000. How much longer will she last and who did she squash this week? Well, the other debuts in the top ten belonged to country singer Trace Adkins, rocking singer songwriter Matt Kearney (who picked up his best sales week and chart performance to date),the soundtrack to the TV show Victorious and the multi artist compilation Slow Grind. For more on Adele’s feats and the charts, head to Billboard here and check out the new top ten below.
