Adele’s ’21′ debuts at number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The British beauty knocked Justin Bieber out of the top spot and totally took control with her latest album.
According to VH1, the singer “will nab the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart next week with her new album 21, which sold 352,000 copies to easily take the crown.”
Although not many people know who Adele is, she’s not really a newcomer. She’s very well known in England (and Europe) and she’s breaking in to the US music market and doing it well. Her album is also #1 on iTunes in the States proving that Americans are taking to her quickly – and don’t think that Adele hasn’t noticed!
“Oh, it’s magical being here. I didn’t think I’d ever release a record here. It’s a big deal in England. There’s a massive thing, like, ‘Did you crack America?!?’” she said to MTV News. There will likely be a lot more mentions of this gal in the future!
