Adele Has No. 1 Album for Eighth Week, No. 1 Song for Third Week

With 1.7 million copies of 21 sold, The British sensation is still the only artist to sell over a million albums this year. While other albums come and go on the Billboard Top 200, Adele has steadily held the number one spot for eight consecutive weeks, a feat that hasn't been done by an artist since Taylor Swift in 2009.

In addition to having the top album, Adele is also breaking records with her hit song "Rolling In The Deep," claiming the record for most weekly plays in the Adult Pop Songs category with 4,780 spins, or an average of 53 plays per station last week alone. The track has spent three weeks as the number one Adult Pop Song and is also on top of Billboard's Hot 100.
