Adele and Carly Rae Jepsen~ “Call” them # 1

Adele just won’t stop… selling albums, that is, as her massive smash 21 returns to the top of the Billboard 200 Albums chart for a 24th frame at # 1. That run makes 21 the longest running # 1 album since Prince’s Purple Rain soundtrack grabbed 24 weeks on top in 1984. It also places in a tie for 6th place for the longest running # 1 album in history. Congrats Adele! With another 75,000 records sold, 21 has now totaled over 9.34 million in the U.S. which is unheard of these days when most hit albums struggle to get over 1 or 2 million total…. Adele (whose album has never left the top ten in its entire 68 week run) holds off a few debuts from Alan Jackson who grabs his 12th top ten record with Thirty Miles West at # 2 and legendary group The Beach Boys who grab their highest charting album since 1974 at # 3 with That’s Why God Made the Radio. Other top ten debuts come from Neil Young, Big K.R.I.T., Curren$y and Brandi Carlisle. For more on Adele’s feats and this chart, head to Billboard here and check out the new top ten below.
