Adele’s historic reign continues, as 21 returns to No.1 on the Billboard 200, for its 24th week.
The album, which sold 75,000 copies last week, according to Nielsen SoundScan, now ties with Prince & the Revolution’s Purple Rain soundtrack and the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack with 24 weeks atop the list. Only eight albums, including 21, have ruled for at least 24 weeks.
Here are the albums with 20 or more weeks at No. 1 in the 56 year history of the Billboard 200 chart:
Weeks at No. 1, Title, Artist, Peak Year
54, “West Side Story” soundtrack, 1962**
37, “Thriller,” Michael Jackson, 1983
31, “Rumours,” Fleetwood Mac, 1977
31, “South Pacific” soundtrack, 1958
31, “Calypso,” Harry Belafonte, 1956
24, “21,” Adele, 2011
24, “Purple Rain,” Prince and the Revolution/Soundtrack, 1984
24, “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack, 1978
21, “Please Hammer Don’t Hurt ‘Em,” M.C. Hammer, 1990
20, “The Bodyguard,” Whitney Houston/Soundtrack, 1992
20, “Blue Hawaii,” Elvis Presley/Soundtrack, 1961
** (The figure of 54 weeks at No. 1 combines the set’s time atop separate stereo and mono LP charts before the Billboard 200 became a singular ranking the week of Aug. 17, 1963.)
As if 21 spending its 24th week atop the chart isn’t enough, the album has never left the top 10 in its entire 68-week chart run, dropping only as low as No. 7.
It also continues its reign as the best-selling album of 2012 — 3.52 million copies sold this year alone. Overall, 21 has sold 9.34 million copies, making it the 24th biggest seller in America since SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991 according to Billboard.
Katy Perry’s headed to the big screen. Her 3D concert film, Katy Perry: Part of Me, opens Thursday July 5.
“I am so excited to paint the silver screen in 3D color with help from our friends at Paramount and Imagine. For the last year and a half, I have intimately documented my life both on and off the stage of the California Dreams Tour. I want to take you behind the cotton candy clouds and reveal the highs and lows, nuts and bolts of this extraordinary ride. I promise you, after seeing this film, you will truly know me,” Perry said.
Perry began documenting her life on and off the road during her California Dreams Tour, consisting of 124 shows, over a year ago. The 3D film, co-produced by Paramount and EMI, will highlight two of the shows at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The singer’s third album was recently re-released under the title Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection. Its lead single, “Part of Me,” became the twentieth song in the Billboard Hot 100′s history to debut at number one and the sixth chart-topper from the Teenage Dream project.
Released in August 2010, Teenage Dream, debuted at number one on Billboard’s Top 200, and spawned five consecutive number-one singles on the Hot 100 — making her only the second artist in the chart’s 53 year history to amass five number-one singles from one album after Michael Jackson achieved the feat with his album Bad between the years 1987 and 1988.
With a career that spans nearly 30 years, Madonna has done it all: multiple number one singles, diamond and multi-platinum albums, and record-setting tours. What is left to prove? Absolutely nothing. MDNA, her twelfth studio album, finds the Queen of Pop expressing her post-marriage angst and partying along the way. If you’re expecting a sappy, divorce record, this isn’t the album for you.
