Adele looks set to reclaim the Number One spot in the Official UK Albums Chart this Sunday (January 8).
According to the Official Charts Company, the London songstress is currently at Number One with her ’21’ LP. If she remains at the summit this weekend, the album will celebrate its 19th non-consecutive week at Number One and will become the UK’s longest-topping album in over 40 years.
The current record is held by Simon And Garfunkel, who spent 33 non-consecutive weeks in the top spot in 1970 with ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’.
Adele is currently charting ahead of Bruno Mars, whose ‘Doo-Wops & Hooligans’ LP is at Number Two, and Ed Sheeran, who is at Number Three with ‘+-‘. Coldplay‘s ‘Mylo Xyloto’ and Amy Winehouse‘s posthumous album, meanwhile, occupy the Number Four and Five spots respectively.
Meanwhile, Flo Rida‘s ‘Good Feeling’ is currently on course to knock Coldplay‘s ‘Paradise’ from the Number One spot in the Official UK Singles Chart, although there are only 4,000 copies between the two releases. Olly Murs, Labrinth featuring Tinie Tempah and Avicii are the other acts to make up the rest of the Top Five.
