Lana's Born To Die is a really good album quite different from what we usually hear from pop artists.

Next week, with the Grammy effect, Adele should return to the top of the tally for the 33th week!

The Truck : "You know, five years ago, if I had to make a list of impossible things that would never happen, Sony finally showcasing The Last Guardian and a Final Fantasy VII remake, would have been right at the top of the list. But I'd be wrong, wouldn't I?"
Sony : "I'm sorry, was that a question? Of impossible things that could never happen, in this case, yes, you would have been wrong."

Go, Leonard!

Great debut for lana del ray, and as usual great sales for adele. It will definitely return to #1 next week and it has been out for over a year! :O Oh, and good to see Coldplay still selling well. The rest are pretty much abysmal.

Oh, and btw, the red arrow heads beside the album name represent 2,000,000 sales. So Adele 21 = 8 x 2,000,000 = 16,000,000

Adele could pass 20m at this rate

 

Adele sold 47k copies of 21 on US iTunes in the 3 hour period following the Grammys! In the next full sales week she will probably go back to around 650-700k.



Also she has the most trending videos on Youtube for 2-3 weeks running.

Actually, she's just a little over 17  million sold right now. 21 entered the Top 100 best selling albums chart a few weeks ago which is incredible for an album that's barely one year old.

Hopefully Lana can afford her plastic surgeries now
