Adele - Adele Usurps Queen Britney At The Top Of The U.s. Album Chart

Adele has stolen Britney Spears' crown as the queen of pop after returning to the top of the U.S. album charts for a fourth week at number one.
The Brit's 21 crashed in at the top of the charts seven weeks ago and it keeps bouncing back, and has become the first release of 2011 to reach a million sales.
Britney stormed to the top of the Billboard 200 last week (06Apr11) with Femme Fatale, but, as predicted, Adele has limited Spears' reign to just one week. The Toxic singer slips to two on the new countdown.
Only two new albums make the top 10 - Hollywood Undead debuts American Tragedy at four, while heavy metal band Asking Alexandria enters the chart at nine with Reckless & Relentless.
