Adele’s '25' Makes It 10 Weeks Atop The Billboard 200
She’s done it again! Who, you ask? Adele of course, who else! 25 spends a tenth nonconsecutive week atop the Billboard 200, taking advantage of a slower sales week. How many more copies/units of 25 did Adele move? 100,000 units, with 81% (yes 81,000 copies) being pure sales. The sales only go downhill from here – just saying!

Despite a tepid sales week, there is some fresh blood in the top 10 – well just one newbie. Yo Gotti takes The Art Of Hustle to no. 4 to the tune of 61,000 units. For Yo Gotti, the numbers are an upgrade. Contextually speaking, 61,000 units won’t exactly reinvigorate ...

Once again, the chart narrative is the same. Adele takes a few weeks off, and returns to her rightful place – no. 1. 25 rises from second place to the winner’s circle, to the tune of 151,000 units. Of those 151,000 units, nearly 83% are pure sales sans singles/tracks. What more can you say about the dominance of Adele – this marks nine nonconsecutive weeks atop the Billboard 200. Oh, and apparently, familiar company follows with Justin Bieber’s Purpose returning to no. 2.

Okay, enough with the “oldies” – what about the fresh blood on the Billboard 200? Well, there’s not much, to be hone...
