Once again, Adele has found herself at the very top of the album charts. That's right, after making way for both Future and Rihanna in the last couple weeks, the British singer has reclaimed No. 1 spot on Billboard's weekly Top 200 albums chart with her third release 25 selling around 125,000 copies. This was the ninth nonconsecutive week that Adele's latest effort has reigned as No. 1, and yet it is still miles away from matching the success of her breakthrough sophomore album 21 that dominated the charts for a staggering 24 different weeks.
Noticeable in its absence on Billboard's rankings was Kanye West's latest album The Life of Pablo, though that might change if he ever decides to pull it off of Tidal exclusively and give it a proper release on Apple, Spotify, and in the physical realm.
