The Charts~ it’s nothing new as Adele and Rihanna continue to Rule

The pop music charts are pretty darn predictable these days. All you have to do is say Adele or Rihanna and you know one or both of them is on top. And this week, that’s the case again as Adele holds at # 1 on the Billboard Album Charts with 21 for a 16th week while Rihanna’s “We Found Love” makes it 10 weeks atop the Hot 100 Singles chart…. Adele’s album is the longest run since the Titanic soundtrack grabbed 16 weeks in 1998 while Rihanna’s song is the longest chart topper since Ke$ha’s “Tic Tock” did 10 weeks two years ago. While things are boring this week, next week’s Hot 100 could see some change as Adele may replace Rihanna at the summit with her fast climbing “Set Fire to the Rain”. Stay tuned. For more on all these charts, head to Billboard here and check out the new top tens below.
