Adele's UK album chart domination continues as she holds on to Number One
Singer denies Jason Mraz his first UK Number 1
Adele's UK album chart domination continues as the singer denies Jason Mraz his first Official UK Number One by holding on to the top spot.
In doing so, Adele has now amassed an impressive 24 career weeks at Number One on the Official Albums Chart (23 weeks for her current album and one week for her debut release, '19') beating the chart record held by Eminem, who has spent 23 career weeks at Number 1, reports the Official Charts Company.
On Wednesday, US singer/songwriter Mraz's fourth album, 'Love Is A Four Letter Word', was in pole-position with a comfortable lead of nearly 2,000 copies over '21', but he was forced to settle for the Number Two spot.
Nicki Minaj’s 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' slipped down one place to Number Three, while Lana Del Rey climbed two places to Number Four with 'Born To Die'. Jessie J completes this week’s top 5 with 'Who You Are'.
In the singles chart, Carly Rae Jepsen continued her reign at the top of the pile for a third consecutive week with 'Call Me Maybe'. Conor Maynard's 'Can't Say No' was this week's highest new entry, debuting in at Number Two.
Meanwhile, John Legend’s 'Ordinary People' is this week’s highest climber. The track, which was performed on The Voice last weekend by contestant Jaz Ellington is up from Number 27 to Number Four. FUN's 'We Are Young' and Jesse J Ft David Guetta's 'Laserlight' make up the rest of the Official UK Singles Chart top 5.
