The Brits star’s album makes chart history
Breaking the record for the longest ever stint at No 1, 22-year-old Adele has snatched the title from Madge as her album 21 enters its 10th week at the top.
This beats Madonna’s 1990 achievement of 9 weeks at No 1 with her greatest hits album, The Immaculate Collection.
‘Shat myself,’ says the singer when remembering her pre-show nerves.
‘All day I was thinking, this is gonna be a disaster.’
But within an hour of her tearful rendition of Someone Like You at the Brits, Adele‘s album sales had rocketed by a whopping 890% on Amazon.
And things show no sign of slowing down for the Tottenham-born singer.
Adele‘s debut album 19 holds the No 2 spot on the album chart, she has two singles in the Top 15 and her sell-out tour starts later this month.
