Adele Beats Madonna’s Record

You cannot escape the sound of Adele right now. The young British singer has been number one in the UK album charts for 10 weeks running, the longest ever stay at the top by a female solo artist. Her album, 21, has beaten the record previously held by Madonna’s 1990 set, Immaculate Collection, a greatest hits compilation. The last original studio album to spend 10 weeks at number one was Dire Straits’ Brothers in Arms in 1986. Adele has also made a big splash in the U.S., although she’s not quite a household name yet. In other words, she hasn’t done “Glee”, though they want her!
