It's official! Our beloved Goddess Adele is the queen of the UK music scene!
Not only has the British songstress' second album, 21, been at the top of the album charts for six weeks (while her first album, 19, is at number four), but her second single, Someone Like You, has now been number one on the singles charts for three weeks (first single Rolling in the Deep is at five) - all of which makes her the FIRST LIVING ARTIST since The Beatles to have two top five hits on both the Official Singles Chart and the Official Album Chart simultaneously!
Official Charts Company managing director Martin Talbot says:
"We are witnessing a real superstar in the making. A million sales in six weeks for one album would be impressive enough, but to have another album and two singles continuing to sell so strongly plus heading both the Official Singles and Albums Charts simultaneously is truly exceptional."
We couldn't be happier for her!
Get ready for the Adele nation to continue stateside! Gurlfriend is UNSTOPPABLE!
