Adele - Adele Matches Beatles Record As Hit Storms Up The U.k. Charts
ADELE has charged up the charts in her native Britain to grab the number one spot with her latest single.
The singer's Someone Like You shot up 46 places to top the U.K. singles chart on Sunday (20Feb11).
Her second album, 21, remains at number one in the albums rundown, and thanks to the ongoing success of her debut, 19, and hit single Rolling in The Deep, Adele becomes the first artist since the Beatles in 1964 to score two albums and two singles in the top fives of both album and singles charts in the same week.
Jessie J falls a spot to two in the new singles chart, while Lady Gaga's Born This Way debuts at three.
As well as Adele's albums at one and four, Mumford & Sons' Sigh No More, Rihanna's Loud and Doo Wops & Hooligans by Bruno Mars make up the U.K. top five.
