Adele - Adele Maintains Hold Over U.k. Pop Charts
Soul sensation Adele continues to reign over the U.K. pop charts as her album 21st Century Breakdown celebrates its seventh consecutive week atop the countdown.
The London-born star managed to hold off competition from British rockers Elbow, whose Build A Rocket Boys! charges up the chart to debut at number two - the band's highest-ever placing.
U.K. singer Jessie J is at three with Who You Are, while Adele's 2008 release, 19, is still riding high at four. R.E.M.'s Collapse Into Now is another new entry at five.
The top four in the singles chart remains unchanged - Adele's Someone Like You makes it a month as the country's most popular song, with Jessie J sitting at two with Price Tag, and Rihanna (S&M) and Lady Gaga (Born This Way) in third and fourth place respectively.
Rapper Wiz Khalifa claims fifth position with Black And Yellow.
