This is crazy timing! Hardly a week after Whitney Houston’s death, Adele is set to break her record on the Billboard 200 chart. Houston previously spent 20 weeks at top spot with the soundtrack for The Bodyguard from 1992-1993. Now, Adele’s Grammy-winning album 21 has reached 20 weeks at top spot and is expected to break the record next week, after all the sales for her album are counted.
Both of Adele’s albums went up in sales after her success at the Grammy Awards on Sunday. The album 21 had a 95% gain in sales from the previous week.
