Adele Continues to Rule Hot 200, Jason Mraz Debuts Atop Digital Songs Chart
Adele is unmovable from the top spot in another quiet week on Billboard Hot 200. The "Set Fire to the Rain" crooner reclaims the throne by selling another 124,000 copies with her second studio album "21". Though suffering 14% of decrease, she becomes the only artist who's able to shift over 100,000 this week. It marks her 15th non-consecutive week atop the chart.
The second-biggest selling album on the chart this week is "Take Care". Boasting collaborations by the likes of Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne, the sophomore set of Drake's holds firmly its last week's position at No. 2 on the weekly rundown by moving another 42,000 copies (down 41%).
The Black Keys jump from No. 7 to No. 3 with their "El Camino", forcing Young Jeezy to move down to No. 4. Coldplay round up the top 5 with "Mylo Xyloto", pushing LMFAO to slip lower. The electro/dance duo, who tasted their first top-5 album last week, now have to sit at No. 8 with their "Sorry for Party Rocking".
Elsewhere on another Billboard chart, Rihanna is back at No. 1 with "We Found Love". However, it's Jason Mraz who causes a buzz as he busts the chart at No. 8 and tops digital song chart with his new single "I Won't Give Up". The song has been downloaded by more than 229,000 people. The number is considered an impressive one since the song itself hasn't been promoted to radio or TV just yet.
