Soul sensation Adele has matched Madonna's British chart record after her second album 21 stayed at the top of the countdown for a staggering nine weeks.
The Londoner has enjoyed stellar success following the release of the disc in January (11), which has spawned two hit singles, Someone Like You and Rolling in the Deep - which are currently at one and nine in the U.K.'s top ten.
Adele celebrated her ninth week at the top of the album chart on Sunday (27Mar11), making her the only female solo act to match Madonna's record from 1990.
The Material Girl set the record with the release of her first greatest hits album, The Immaculate Collection.
