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."

Exceptional, indeed!

We couldn't be happier for her!

Get ready for the Adele nation to continue stateside! Gurlfriend is UNSTOPPABLE!

Congratulations again!

It's official!

Take That is BACK! And more popular than ever!

Their new album, which marks the return of Robbie Williams to the group, has the biggest-selling opening week sales for any album in 13 years, selling almost 520,000 copies, according to the Official Charts Company!

Martin Talbot, the managing director of the Official Charts Company, explains:

'Since their reunion as a four-piece four years ago, Take That have firmly established themselves as the UK's favourite band. Following the return of Robbie Williams to their ranks, that record has been further cemented - and they are now well on course to rule Christmas 2010, just as they dominated Christmas 2006 and 2008.'

Amazing! An unbelievable accomplishment, boys!

We're thrilled to have you back!
