It’s been over a month since Adele dropped her comeback album 30, but its chart domination isn’t ending anytime soon.  The British hitmaker logged the fifth week atop the Billboard 200 chart with her fourth studio album.

Adele is ending 2021 on a high note, as 30 logged its fifth week at No. 1 with 212,000 equivalent album units earned. This marks the biggest fifth week for any album in over three years and it’s only the fourth album to log five or more weeks atop Billboard 200 chart this year, following Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album, Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour, and Drake’s Certified Lover Boy.

30 hit the shelves on November 19 and it debuted atop the Billboard 200 with the biggest week for any album released in 2021. It was preceded by the smash-hit lead single “Easy on Me” and it took it only three days to become the top-selling album of 2021.

When it comes to the rest of the Billboard 200 chart this week, Michael Bublé’s former No. 1 record Christmas bows at No. 2 this time around. It’s closely followed by Taylor Swift’s Red (Taylor’s Version) at No. 3 and Roddy Ricch’s new album Live Life Fast at No. 4.
