Adele Returns to #1, 'Book of Mormon' Soundtrack Sets Record

ROBYN BECK/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- After two weeks at #1, Lady Gaga's Born This Way has now ceded that spot to Adele's album 21, making this 21's tenth non-consecutive week at the top.  Born This Way has now fallen to #2.  The big news is that the soundtrack of the Broadway musical The Book of Mormon has re-entered the chart at #3, following its nine wins at the Tony Awards on Sunday.  That makes it the highest-charting Broadway cast album since 1969, when the cast album for Hair spent 13 weeks at #1.
