Girls run the album charts

Story Highlight

Plus a round up of all the chart news!

Beyonce hung onto the top spot on the UK album chart yesterday, notching up a second week at number one with ‘4’

Adele’s album, ‘21’, is still holding firm at two with Lady GaGa’s ‘Born This Way’ sticking at three proving that girls really do run the world, or the album charts at least.

Meanwhile DJ Fresh has stormed to the top of the singles chart with ‘Louder’. The drum and bass producer saw his track hit the top after selling over one-hundred-and-forty-thousand copies in just seven days. That makes the track the second-fastest selling single of 2011 – after ‘Grenade’, the former Number One from Bruno Mars.

In final chart news, we told you last week how Eminem’s a record for having the first album ever to sell a million copies digitally. Well, today Adele’s bested that record with her album ‘21’ which has passed the million mark in digital sales as well – but it accomplished it in just under four months – faster than any other album in history!
