Adele earns a place in chart history with '21'

Adele may be celebrating the success of her second album's number 1 chart position, but the Grammy award winning singer has another feat to be proud of now, too. 

The Official Charts Company has confirmed that the 'Rolling In The Deep' star has won herself the title of having the biggest selling January album of the past five years and she sold over 208,000 copies of '21' in just one week, which was only bettered last year by Take That. 

The fact that her debut album, '19', is also at number 4 this week means she has, according to the Chart Company's statistics, become:

 

"the first artist for almost twelve years to score two Official Albums Chart Top 5 hits,  including the number one, simultaneously."
