Adele May Be Headed Back To Her Throne Atop The Billboard 200!

| Filed under: Music MinuteAdeleLady GaGaBusiness Blitz

gaga vs adele on billboard chart

Adele! You are SO unstoppable!

Last week, we were pleased to report that Lady GaGa's Born This Way was standing strong at the top of the Billboard 200 chart, but now it looks like she's got serious competition.

Adele's album 21 is likely to return to the #1 spot on the Billboard 200, bringing Born This Way into a respectable #2 slot.

This could mark Adele's TENTH non-consecutive week at #1 on the chart for her album 21!

Guess we'll see how things play out this week. Best of luck to the both of you!

Who do U think will end up at #1 on the Billboard 200 this week? Who would U like to see top the chart?

    I rarely buy cds anymore. The only time I listen to them is in my car but I may very well buy Adele's album. I agree with everything she stands for and she doesn't try being who she isn't.

    gaga is done !! she was only #1 cause her album was sold for 99 cents,shame on her. now we get the REAL NUMBERS !! since the day 3 gaga dropped on charts all over the world.u can check it on itunes. adele is #1 with her album all over the world. gaga was only #1 in the first 2 days….. cause her fans bought mny copies. unreal numbers to an unreal artist…. gaga is done.shje doesnt have any impact on these days. WANNABE

    gaga say bye bye

    Gaga's "over one million" sales was only accomplished by putting the album on a ridiculous discount—99 cents— during the first week. Her sales would NOT have topped one million if they were full price. Hell, even the boybands didn't resort to that type of fraud!!! But she's won another honor—sales this week fell SO FAR OFF to just over 100,000. All of the other albums in the "over one million" club continued to sell well weeks after. So no surprise Adele, or anyone else topped her this week.

  5. 5

    And still no mention of Gagas RECORD BREAKING drop in sales by 85%!!! Thats a record to be proud of!!!

  6. Dale says – reply to this


    funny how you failed to metion how GAGA also earned the title in largest DROP in sales EVER!!! from 17 albums that sold 1 million units in a week in Nielsen SoundScan history Gaga's album sold 174,000 copies this week, down from 1,108,000 last week…

  7. M: says – reply to this


    drop 85 % …. frauds never last !!! wannabe

  8. 8

    its ok i got both albums and Adele's gets boring pretty quickly, and gagas doesn't. and this is coming from a gaga hater.

  9. 9

    jajajajajajjajajajajajaj…perez sounding a little depress there….

  10. 10

    Team Adele!

  11. 11

    Re: SlaveMeh – lol, don't you know it. He's been pumping her up like CRAZY for years now. She's just not that good. Re: yeaman – I haven't bought an album - digital or cd since Maroon 5's second album. But last night I bought Adele's…

  12. JLa says – reply to this


    I think Adele may be #1 Her songs that I have heard so far are good and can transend generations. They can turn into classics its not music of just one generation. On the other hand Lady Gaga who is very talented her songs arent something that will be listeined to 20 years from now. I think she needs to simmer down with her PR she is too out there. She leaves little to the imagination. She will be more about her costumes then her actual music and talent. Gaga is a talent of just today and yesterday not of tomorrow.

  13. 13

    I personally don't like either of these..Although Adele has 10000% More talent than Gaga, no doubt, Gaga cannot sing. However, Lady gaga is a performer wether you like her or not…Adele seems very stiff and boring..Wouldnt want to see her in concert. I still dont get the big deal about her.. I think you need to just calm down Perez

  14. 14

    I wonder how many copies of "21" would have been sold if some of them were sold for 99 cents….

  15. 15

    LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone, EVEN PEZ HEAD, is hating GAGA!!

  16. 16

    Re: TheMrsBradPitt – I can't imagine the album being anything but amazing
    Re: JLa – I agree with you 120%. No matter how devoted a Lady Gaga fan is, years from now, noone is going to remember Born This Way or Judas..unless maybe it was used in a movie. The songs have nothing special about them and they are just generic. Adele already overcame and fought against "the popular music" and still came on top. She has heart and has hints of the past in her songs. I can very well see her being a big influence on music.

  17. 17

    Re: JLa – Yeah Yeah Yeah. What's that fat unfuckable Adele gonna do next? Huh? I can't wait for her next album ”23”!!! LOLZ!! We are a fickle people and when that fat unfuckable bitch puts out her next album, we will have MOVED ON to what's next!!! LOL!!!

  18. 18

    Re: M: – Girl where have you been we missed you!!!! Lol

  19. 19

    go adele! How rare to see someone who isn't even american dominate the charts with real MUSIC. No gimmicks, no cheap promotions, just a real girl with unreal talent. I'm rooting for her to hold that spot as long as possible. Maybe this will help the industry reevaluate artists. All it takes is something relatable and geniune for the public to buy.

  20. 20

    Re: sd_man – real music? What the fuck are you smokin? i guess you hang out in your bedroom and cry????? LOLZ!!! Yeah, real music for a bunch of fat unfuckable dank tampons!! LOLZ!

  21. 21

    Re: Queen mab – LOLZ!!! Totally!!! Why hasn't that wetback queen that runs this gossip shit site talked about GAGA's latest record and how her BTW shitE is FLOPPIN!! No one even plays her songs…it's almost like a SNL skit if you hear BTW on the radio. She's FRIEEEEEEEEEEEED!! LOL!!

  22. 22

    Re: M: – LOVE IT!! POOR PEZ HEAD IS DEPRESSED!!! Maybe he should stop jackin' it to pics of Justin BEEBS!!! LOL!!!!

  23. FS says – reply to this


    That's because Adele the a true talent and didn't have to resort to scams like selling her album at 0.99 cents. Gaga's sales figures were not accurate because of that deal. Now the real numbers show. 84% drop!! Good! fucking bitch

  24. 24

    Re: sd_man – 100% agree! For the album of the decade (lol what was she thinking when she said that) people forgot about it fairly quickly.

  25. 25

    Wow, what a spin!!!! Bravo Perez, you have done the GaGa Payroll proud.

  26. 26

    Perez, you really shouldn't try to pit these two singers against one another. It's obvious you're trying to get their respective fanbases aggravated, and that's all we need is another boring "my diva is better than your diva" fan war. Two different singers, two different audiences (although it's possible that their fanbases intersect), two different styles of music. If I want to dance in my room or go out dancing or blast some music in my car, I'll listen to GaGa. If I want to relax, put on some mood music, have music to fall asleep to, or listen to some break-up music, I'll put on Adele. I'm glad to see that both of these woman are dominating the charts, especially when it's not always been this way where women period dominated the charts.

  27. 27

    not a gaga fan, but still some impressive numbers in today's market. a big drop would be expected with such a large opening, but i think it shows that the cd cannot go beyond her hardcore fans, which is really all a recording artist can expect.
    still pretty impressive tht adele's cd has "legs" and continues to sell well. you'd have to say her cd is closer to music with some redeemable artistic value than some prefab crap that britney's people shit out.

  28. 28

    I hope Adele's album gets back to #1. Such a beautiful voice and wonderful lyrics.

  29. 29

    Bobblehead you and the deamon clown are shakin' in your boots! Ya know her shit flopped, no one counts those numbers that 99 cent buffoon did.

  30. 30

    84% drop in one week is HUGE - i liked it a lot at first, but it sounds too familiar. i've heard all those songs in the late 80s. nothing new or groundbreaking to listen to

  31. 31

    Re: RabbitHeart – I totally agree with you. Perez just want more clicks and comments. Both Adele and Gaga are great in their music genre. I listen to both singers but I'd only spend money in Adele's albums since I can get Gaga's for free. I'd go to a Gaga's concert if invited. Someone told me that it is like going to a wrestling match ’cause Gaga screams to people while talking, LOL! There are only two artists/band I'd pay to see live again ’cause they are awesome: Christina Aguilera and Coldplay!

  32. 32

    Go Adele!

  33. 33

    Little flop monsters are in denial! It's true! They are collectively wondering how it is that the album of the decade could flop so badly in its second week. The best before date on BTW was 31 May 2011. Now it is expired. ajajajajajajajajajajajajaj

  34. 34

    Re: RabbitHeart – Break-up music? Mood music? It's music, scat-cookie! WTF is wrong with u??? LOL!!! dang that adele is FAT! She's probs a GaGa fan!! LOL!!!!!

  35. 35

    And she did it without cheating or whoring herself out. She didn't have to give away albums at Best Busy or Starbucks or whore them out for 2 days at .99. Desperate attempt to be #1..PATHETIC and DEPLORABLE…get lost tranny

  36. 36

    Re: M: – Actually Gaga's album would have went #1 regardless of the 99cent sale. Her album sold 800,000 copies without the 99 cent deal. She may not be a real artist to you, but to many others she is an artist who stands up for what she believes in and cares about everyone regardless of race, religion, color, nationality, etc.. She is an inspiration to many people and if people actually took the time to listen to her album and the message she is trying to convey then maybe they could understand her a little bit better.

  37. 37

    If Adele is headed back to her throne atop the BB200, does that mean Lady ExpiredGaGa usurped it for 2 weeks? ajajajaj
    This is her most impressive record to date - the biggest drop in sales of an album selling more than 1 million units (first week) in the history of mankind! It's all true!

  38. 38

    Re: Jazz20 – It would have went number 1 because she released the album on a date where no other stiff competition was releasing their's. Not a very impressive accomplishment. Lol Perez posts every time Gaga takes a shit and calls it epic yet won't post about the new record she set lol. Biased Prick.

  39. 39

    Re: Phibes – I KNOW!! Too fucking hiHlariouSS!! Why is THAT WETBACK PEZ HEAD SCAT COOKIE SO DARN QUIET NOW??

  40. 40

    85% drop in the second week is the largest album drop in HISTORY! Why can't you objectively report on that fact?! It is apparent that most people who comment here are SO OVER your infatuation with Gaga.

  41. 41

    I am obsessed with ADELE!

  42. 42

    Re: Jazz20 – You're a fucking loser. Close your legs!! I can smell it from here!! P.S. When was the last time GaGa took a shit? I NEED TO KNOW!!!!! LOLZ!!!!!!

  43. 43

    caca sales went down 84% since last week…..I hope this is the beginning of the end for that piece of trash.

  44. 44

    Re: Jazz20 – keep drinking that koolaid

  45. 45

    Re: Jaimee22
    Most albums are timed to be released around their so called competitors for that reason. You think Beyonce or Britney Spears would want their albums to come out the same day as LG? She could have had the album released the same day as some other big albums and could have very well debuted at #1–you can't say for sure if it would or wouldn't have. If you're going to shoot down her accomplishments as "not impressive," like you really know what's supposed to be considered impressive, then you might as well shoot down everyone else who debuted at #1 with high numbers, because there was, as you so eloquently put it, no stiff competition.

  46. 46

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – Even gay people are starting to realize that (un)Lady(like) Garden Gnome is a CHARLATAN. It's TRUE! She exploits gay people for her own personal aggrandizement! STOP drinking the Kool-Aid little floppers!

  47. 47

    This is SENSATIONAL news!! I love the way that Mother Munsta and her Little Gremlins have been acting as if she's already a 'legend' and an 'icon', but the fact is the general public actually see her as a joke!! And her 99c Happy Meal deal for 'Bomb This Way' has only served to cement this view - borne out by this HISTORIC second week drop - the biggest EVER! So, goodbye and good riddance, Lady Gaga. You WON'T be missed.

  48. 48

    Adele makes me proud to be British.

  49. 49

    woohooo thats great news!! Adele's cd is awesome.. I bought it because she deserves to recognition. Now that the sales gimmicks for lady gagag are wearing off- she'll dwindle back into nothingness. Gooooo Adele do you girlllL!!!

  50. 50

    LMAO..billboard said that even without the extra bolstering sales from amazon.. LAdy Gaga's album sales would have dropped more then most blockbuster albums- in short- this cd SUCKS! Quote- As "Born This Way's" first week was bolstered in a most-unusual way by likely hundreds of thousands of sales generated by AmazonMP3's decision to sell the digital version of the set for 99-cents on two separate days, its second-week fall appears even greater than what we normally see for blockbuster sellers. At the rate of Gaga's decline, we could see Adele's "21" (No. 2 this week, up one slot, with 121,000 - down 4%) return to the penthouse very soon.

  51. 51

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – oh that is funny shit,lol

  52. 52

    I much prefer adele over lady gaga !

  53. 53

    I like Adele, but i Love Gaga, so i would want her to be on the #1 spot.

  54. 54

    The album 'Born This Way' is not good. Most of the songs on that album suck. Lady Gaga worries more about wearing crazy clothes and marketing herself all over the internet and she does not take time off to write great songs.

  55. 55

    Adele is a true artist. She takes time off to write great songs. She is not overexposed. She does not wear crazy clothes and make-up to attract attention to herself. She sings better than Lady Gaga. And her album 21 is way better than Born this way.

  56. 56

    Gaga holds a new record you forgot to mention Perez. Largest drop in sales from week 1 to week 2-around 87%!!! Wow! What does that tell you about that album? It tells you that it is NOT GOOD. Selling it for a buck was a nice little scheme, but after that little trick, the truth came out….the album sucks a big one!!

  57. 57

    Gaga=overrated, and a copycat
    Adele=a living legend who will have a career 50years from now.

    Gaga is over unless she goes back to her old music of Bad Romance and Poker Face. This whole album is horrible. That 'Hair' song she got out is a copy of Lita Ford 'kiss me deadly' from the 80s. Gaga is so unoriginal.

  58. 58

    Duh, no shit! Real talent always triumphs over gimmick.

  59. 59

    Re: hollywoodatlanta – The song Judas is a copy of Loli Lux's song Wannabe. Born This Way is a copy of Madonna's song Express yourself. Edge of Glory is a copy of Soraya's song Sin Miedo. Lady Gaga is a copycat. He little monsters are blind and think she is original.

  60. 60

    Re: hollywoodatlanta – The song Heavy metal lover is a copy of The cardigans' song My favorite Game. Sheibe is a copy of that oldies song Ladies' night by the group Kool and the gang. You and I is a copy of Queen's song we will rock you. Lady Gaga is embarrassing herself by pretending to be original and a genius. Perez Hiton should tell his idol to stop stealing from other artists.

  61. 61

    Re: fiona1978
    You need to get your hearing checked. FYI, the drum beat on "You And I" was sampled from "We Will Rock You " and IS credited on the album to Queen. If she "stole, " then Madonna "stole" from ABBA with "Hung Up" and so did every other artist who's ever dared to sample. She didn't STEAL anything, and I certainly doubt Brian May from Queen would have played on a track from which she supposedly stole.

  62. 62

    Re: hollywoodatlanta
    You do know that "Kiss Me Deadly" by Lita Ford was actually a remake itself? Don't know how you think it sounds like "Hair," though.

  63. 63

    and why is that?

    oh yeah. adele HAS talent.
    lady gag HAS NOT. easy as that

  64. 64

    Re: fiona1978 – Don't forget "Government Hooker" a rip off of "Grove is in the Heart" by Deelite.

  65. 65

    Gaga is phenominal. Her album BORN THIS WAY sold approx. 650,000 hard copies and digital copies in the first week not including the 99 cent promotion. THAT brought it up over a million…..Hate all you want, it doesn't matter she's hear to stay, you want programmed shit music go listen to Katy Perry, Rihanna and Justin Bieber

  66. 66

    lady gag is the next queen of pop
    her album is great
    she is no 1 every where

  67. 67

    Re: M:
    fuck yourself stupid ass
    gaga is the most successful artist in the world now sheh's the queen of pop
    your madonna is the maid of pop lol
    hagdonna is an old has been
    her last three albums FLOPPED in the whole world except uk
    hhahah madonna is the queen of flops and shits

  68. 68

    thats cause all the monsters bought it the first week haha, adele is gaining new fans, and adele has that album you can listen to the whole thing, born this way, only has like 7 good songs, and they are good not great. Adele will be album of the year, and alot of mothers will buy adele for christmas, so those sales will keep souring

  69. 69

    you're a fresh piece of shit shut your dirty mouth
    gaga is the queen and you're nothing
    who cares about the trash you say

  70. 70

    Hey nothing bad being in 2'nd. Hell, just being in the top 10 is really good.

  71. china says – reply to this


    quality beats crap. how very surprising….

  72. 72

    Re: M: – I could care less how Gaga does in the Billboard charts, she has been No 1 two weeks running so far here in the UK and there were NO cheap promotions on here at all. The world doesn't revolve around America, believe it or not, there are plenty of American stars that are way bigger in Europe than they are at home, our tastes are rather more varied here. No impact these days? Who are you trying to kid? LOL!

  73. 73

    Re: POPSCIDICTATOR – You really are a troll aren't you? Is there anybody you do actually like? No, don't bother telling me, I'm not really that interested. All I ever see from you is nasty comments about a variety of huge stars, methinks you have some self esteem issues, either that or too much time on your hands. I know I shouldn't feed the trolls but you are starting to get as ubiquitous as M and are pissing me off just as much ;o)

  74. 74

    Its ridiculous comparing Adele and Gaga, their songs and voices are completely different. Sure, Adele has a decent voice, but I don't like the stuff she sings, not my kind of music, however I still acknowledge she is talented. I am getting sick of the fans of one female star (whoever that may be) bashing all the others. Its not big and its not clever, if you don't like the music then no problem, its a matter of taste after all, its the spewing of hatred that I don't like (for example - Adele is fat, Gaga is ugly), what has any of that got to do with their music? Just chill people and make sensible comments, oh yeah and I am getting sick of people posting the same comments over and over again in multiple topics, get a life losers!

  75. 75

    Adele has talent and she's original, SHE WILL BE NUMBER #1, not that ugly freak, who by the way flopped even though she selled her album for 99 cent in TWO WHOLE DAYS, haha Perez you and your 'wifey' flopped

  76. 76

    gaga is number 1 for the second week

  77. 77

    and adele didnt have to pull the same stunt gaga did by selling her album for .99. adele sells her album legit!

  78. 78

    Re: madonna is shit – In what world do you live in to think Madonna's last three albums flopped? Confessions on a Dancefloor was number 1 around the world, and so was Hard Candy. Confessions even went diamond in Europe.

  79. JCPR says – reply to this


    damn who the fuck keeps buying adele's album?
