Singer Adele Just Broke A Billboard Record Set By Carole King

Adele just broke Billboard records set by Carole Kings
The Hello Crooner And Grammy Award Winning Singer, Adele already knows that she did some pretty cool amazing stuffs when she was 21, and she has a new stat to prove it.

This week, her album “21,” which debuted in 2011, surpassed Carole King’s 1971 “Tapestry” for time spent on the Billboard 200 by a woman,Billboard reports. Adele's album “21” just completed its 319th week on the chart where King’s album spent a non-consecutive 318 weeks.

Billboard  also notes that while Adele’s album ''21'' has appeared on the chart every week since its debut, King’s plunged out of the ranking in 1977 after 302 weeks, and reappeared in 2010. That year’s Troubadour Reunion tour reuniting King with James Taylor for performances around the world is likely a factor in her renewed popularity; “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical” made its debut three years later.

Overall, Adele’s “21” is the 11th longest-charting album on the Billboard chart, seeing as the list is unsurprisingly dominated by male-led bands.

Billboard states that Pink Floyd’s 1973 “The Dark Side of the Moon” holds the top spot with 927 weeks on the chart, followed by Johnny Mathis’ 1958 “Johnny’s Greatest Hits” with 490, the 1956 “My Fair Lady” original cast recording with 480 and Bob Marley & The Wailers’ 1984 “Legend” with 463.

If the album “21” keeps charting, it might break some other records as well...
