We're not too surprised! The Tonys WERE just on, after all!

Adele's monster of a second album, 21, is back at the number one spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart for a tenth non-consecutive week, followed in the number two position by Lady GaGa's Born This Way, and now, the soundtrack to the Broadway smash The Book Of Mormon has secured third place, with 61,000 copies sold!

That makes it the highest charting Broadway cast album, and first top ten, since the Hair soundtrack spent 13 weeks at number one in 1969!

Amazing!

We're so happy to see a musical doing so well - especially one as good as The Book of Mormon!

Congratulations to everyone! All well-deserved!

    And on itunes Gaga's not in the top 10, next week she will be even lower on the top 200 the albums a flop. THE ALBUM HAS NO LONGEVITY.

    Interesting u didnt talk about Gagas drop being the biggest drop for a debuting #1 album in Billboard history..shocking

    Get it Adele bb! I guess Born This Way has no real legs to stand on as an album itself if an album that has been out for 5 months is pushing her into the number 2 spot, and BTW was only out for two weeks.

    HYSTERICAL…….Adele back in number one after CaCa sabotaged the billboard with her .99 ploy and after it's over Adele goes back to number 1. Your marketing people weren't too clever, hmmmm? This is a total burn on CaCa and she's alienated the real chart toppers whom do their proper promotion. CAN'T WAIT FOR MADONNA'S NEW ALBUM……..play close attention CaCa and please try not to plagiarize too much!

    The Book of Mormom was on Amazon for $1.99 right after the Tony's - if it wasn't so cheap it wouldn't have sold nearly as many copies.

    Well, I like Adele, but she can be kind of boring sometimes. I didn't like the 1st album that much at first–maybe a handful of songs–but it's growing on me. The 2nd one is better IMO, but I don't think it's worth all the hype. I purchased "Rolling In The Deep" back in the winter when it first came out when people were barely listening to it, even posted the video to my FB account and got maybe 1 or 2 "likes," but now, you can't even escape that song–it's everywhere! I know a lot of people are happy for her b/c she's like the anti-GaGa, but I'm kind of tired of hearing about her as well–reminds me of when Norah Jones first came out and everyone was all about her–although I am happy for her success.

    Re: YoungTaurus – Or it could be just because she is actually getting new fans every week (that is according to soundscan too btw), instead of her being the 'anti-gaga'. Imo she deserves this success, she got noticed for her talent; nothing more. She is refreshing compared to all the electro pop around, and she was starting to be known with her 19 album to when that episode of SNL with Sarah Palin came out. People heard her live and were taken by her talent.

    Good job adele! I loved you since I first heard you in Berlin back in '08! Keep slaying girl.

    Re: madonna_is_queen
    Oh, don't get me wrong. I think she very much deserves this success, but I'm sort of a little selfish and hate it when someone I liked when they weren't that big become very huge. LOL But it's not about me, right? I just don't want her to become so hyped up that I won't like her anymore, but honestly I don't see that happening, because she's humble and doesn't subscribe to what everyone else is doing these days
