Adele's '21' at No.1 in the midweek update

Following her incredible success at the recent 2012 BRIT Awards, Adele has remained at No.1 in the midweek update of the UK albums chart with her sophomore record '21'. 

The vocal superstar is on course to spend her 22nd non-consecutive week at the top if '21' remains where it currently is until the positions are confirmed on Sunday, March 4 and The Official Charts Company has explained:

"Combined with the one week she spent at Number 1 with her debut album, '19', another chart-topping week would see Adele this Sunday overtaking music legend David Bowie in the number of career weeks spent at Number 1 in the Official Albums Chart."

Earlier this week, the record-breaking album overtook Michael Jackson's 'Bad' in the list of the all-time top selling albums in UK and has spent a phenomenal 58 weeks on the UK Top 40 so far. 

Elsewhere, Emeli Sandé's debut 'Our Version Of Events' is at No.2, Meat Loaf's 'Hell In A Handbasket' has entered at No.5 and the late Whitney Houston's 'Essential' collection has climbed 9 places to No.8. 




Pink Floyd's 'The Wall' has made an appearance at No.10 and The Ting Tings have charted at No.13 with 'Sounds From Nowheresville'.
