Adele seems to be going from strength to strength after winning big at the Grammys and Brit awards and although she was abruptly cut off by James Corden during her acceptance speech earlier this week Adele has another reason to be all smiles after breaking a record set by Whitney Houston back in 1992.
The multi-platinum selling artist’s record 21 has remained the Number one album on the BillBoard’s 200 chart after 21 consecutive weeks.
The north London singer’s secound album, went on to sell another 730,000 copies the following week of the Grammy’s ( week ending Feb 19) up by 207% according to Nielsen SoundScan who monitor record sales across for recording artists.
Adele has now smashed Whitney Houston’s record for the longest number one on the Billboard Charts. The late Whitney Houston’s soundtrack album The Bodyguard was number one for 20 weeks in a row in 1992-1993.
So far the album has sold a whopping 7,353,000 copies in the US and 20 million worldwide and counting.
Now that’s something to put on your CV!
