Adele set to maintain her grip on the UK album chart

The Wanted are also on for a second week at Number One in the singles race

Adele is set to remain top of the UK albums chart this Sunday (July 24) with her second album ’21’, according to the BBC Midweek Chart.

’21’, which was announced among the nominees for the Barclaycard Mercury Prize yesterday (July 19), will make it a total of 18 weeks at the top of the chart if it remains there on Sunday.

In a largely unchanged top ten, the only new entry is set to come from dance pop group LMFAO‘s debut album ‘Sorry For Party Rocking’, which is presently charting at Number Six.

Meanwhile in the UK singles chart, boyband The Wanted are on for a second straight week at Number One with their single ‘Glad You Came’.

The UK top five is completely unchanged at present, with DJ Fresh and Ed Sheeran currently at Number Two and Three respectively. Beyonce and Loick Essien are also looking like non-movers at Number Four and Five.
