Adele’s Grammy-winning album 21 has reached yet another milestone as it has managed to stay at the top of the Billboard 200 charts for 24 non-consecutive weeks. 21 is now tied with Prince’s 1984 classic Purple Rain for the record of weeks at the top of the charts. The Huffington Post reports:
Adele’s 21 shows no signs of fading away any time soon. The global chart-topping album has reclaimed the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart.
If you’ve been counting, that’s 24 nonconsecutive weeks atop the U.S. albums chart. Since last week, the British singer sold 75,000 copies of her sophomore effort, reports Billboard.
Perhaps even more impressive than spending 24 nonconsecutive weeks atop the Billboard 200, is that Adele’s album joins only eight albums to spend six months leading the list. 21 now ties Prince and the Revolution’s 1984 Purple Rain soundtrack with 24 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1.
