Who Charted? Adele Ends 2011 With 14th No. 1 Week
First! Now that Christmas is in our past, Christmas is, too — Adele’s 21 returned to its comfy spot atop Billboard’s 200 with 144,000 copies sold, per Nielsen SoundScan, and Michael Bublé fell to No 24. The haul gives the British singer her 14th week at No. 1 and brings her two weeks closer to beating the record set by the Titanic soundtrack in 1998.
2 Through 10: Drake’s Take Care slipped into second place (72,000), followed by Young Jeezy’s T M: 103 Hustlerz Ambition (67,000), Lady Antebellum’s Own the Night (54,000), LMFAO’s Sorry for Party Rocking (49,000), Florence + the Machine’s Ceremonials (47,000), the Black Keys’ El Camino (45,000), Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto (44,000), Rihanna’s Talk That Talk (42,000), and Now! 40 41,000.
Notable Debuts: Skrillex’s Bangarang EP arrived at No. 19 with 24,000 copies sold and Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ award-nominated soundtrack for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo checked in at 44 with 14,000.
LMFAO All the Way to the Bank: The duo not only cracked the Top 10 for the first time, but notched a second week at No. 1 on the Hot 100 with “Sexy and I Know It.” Which probably makes up for the fact that they almost caught fire this week.
