Adele Sinks Titanic Record

Almost a year after its release last February, pop songbird Adele’s 21 is showing no signs of letting up. In its 48th week on the albums chart, the multi-Grammy nominee’s sophomore effort spends its 17th week at #1, topping Titanic and tying Billy Ray Cyrus’ Some Gave All back in 1992. The all-time record for weeks at #1 is held by the West Side Story soundtrack, which spent a total of 54 from 1962-63, followed by Michael Jackson’s Thriller, with 37 weeks on top. The 96k in sales this week sends 21’s total in the U.S. past 6.1 million.

Congrats to Adele for achieving 17 weeks! Wouldn't be awesome for "21" to have spent "at least" 21 weeks at the #1 position?

If she does perform at the Grammy awards, sales could continue to stand this feat.
