Adele "21"

Fans and music critics alike are pretty surprised to see Britney Spears’ new Femme Fatale album get knocked out of the number one spot on the Billboard Charts. Who dares remove this pop princess from her throne? Adele, with her 88,000 sold copies of album 21.

This will be Adele’s fourth non-consecutive week at #1, according to Nielsen SoundScan, since her album’s release in February. That’s pretty impressive for this British-born musician. As for Britney, her album sales are declining with her chart spot. During its second chart cycle, Femme Fatale has suffered a decline of 73 percent on sales of 75,000, for a two-week total of 352,000. Adele, on the other hand, has surged past the 1 million mark after seven weeks, making her album the best selling record in 2011.

As for some of the rest of the top 10: Radiohead’s new King of Limbs is just behind Britney at #3. Despite all the drama, Chris Brown’s new album sits comfortably at #6. The Songs for Japan charity album follows at #7 and Mumford & Sons settles at #8.
