Adele creeps up on Whitney (metaphorically)!0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:34 pm

What an ironic time for this story to come about!
 
Just a few days after the tragic death of Whitney Houston, Adele will equal Houston’s chart record for the ‘longest run at number 1 for a female artist on the US album chart’ with her famous album ‘21’. The album has been in the US album chart for nearly 20 weeks and once it reaches 20 weeks it will be level with Whitney Houston’s ‘The Bodyguard’ – released in 1992.
 
Adele does seem to be on a very lucky streak at the moment, with her international success and the 6 Grammies that she won at the 54th Grammy awards! If the album manages to remain at number 1 for 21 weeks she’ll become the longest running female artist on the US album chart and will probably chuckle at the irony (the album is titled 21… 21 weeks!)
 
However, it’ll take a very long time before Adele manages to break Houston’s other record! Whitney also holds the record for ‘the only female artist with multiple albums being in the top 10 for more than 10 weeks’. The albums that helped her to achieve this record were titled ‘The Bodyguard’ (20 weeks), ‘Whitney Houston’ (14 weeks) and ‘Whitney’ (11 weeks.)
 
I’m sure you’d love to see which other female artists have managed to get an album on the US album charts for 10 weeks more. So, here they are:
 
 Whitney Houston ‘The Bodyguard’ (1992) – 20 weeks
Adele ’21’ (2011) – 20 weeks
Carole King ‘Tapesty’ (1971) – 15 weeks
Whitney Houston ‘Whitney Houston’ (1986) – 14 weeks
Judy Garland ‘Judy At Carnegie Hall’ (1961) – 13 weeks
Taylor Swift ‘Fearless’ (2008) – 12 weeks
Alanis Morissette ‘ Jagged Little Pill’ (1995) – 12 weeks
Mariah Carey ‘Mariah Carey’ (1991) – 11 weeks
Whitney Houston ‘Whitney’ (1987) – 11 weeks
Paula Abdul ‘Forever Your Girl’ (1989) – 10 weeks
The Singing Nun ‘The Singing Nun’ (1963) – 10 weeks

 
I’m fairly impressed that Adele has come this far in the music industry! She’s come from being ‘barely known’ to ‘international superstar’… it’s really quite astounding. I’m sure she’ll continue to break even more records in the future.
