Adele Matches Madonna UK Chart Record with New CD

Columbia Records(LONDON) -- Adele's new album 21 has done very well on the chart in the U.S., but in the singer's home country of England, it's a record breaker.

According to the BBC, 21 has now spent nine weeks at number one on the UK album chart.  The other only female solo artist who's ever stayed at number one that long has been Madonna, with her 1990 best-of album The Immaculate Collection.

If Adele's album stays on top for an additional week, she'll hold the all-time record.

In addition, Adele's song "Someone Like You" is number one on the UK single chart, and she has two other singles in the top 40.
