Adele retains top chart spots


Adele has retained number one spot in the UK singles and album charts

Adele has held on to her historic double whammy with her single and album staying at number one, while Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow followed her husband into the charts.

The heartfelt hit Someone Like You soared to the top spot last week in the wake of Adele’s acclaimed Brit Awards performance.

On Sunday she retained the number one slot in the albums chart for a fifth week with her second album, 21.

Meanwhile Oscar-winning actress Paltrow – married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin – secured two top 40 singles following her appearance on TV show Glee.

Her medley of Rihanna’s Umbrella and Singing In The Rain entered the singles chart at number 22, while a cover of Cee-Lo Green’s chart-topper Forget You reached 31, said the Official Charts Company.

Paltrow proved to be a download hit after viewers of More 4 saw her perform a handful of tracks with the cast of the musical comedy-drama series.

The Glee cast also stormed into the album charts with their offering Glee: The Music, Volume 4.

But the glory was, again, all Adele’s, with her debut album 19 moving up two places from four to two, while her other single Rolling In The Deep remained at the number four spot.

Adele’s earlier single, a cover of Bob Dylan’s Make You Feel My Love, dropped one place from 24 to 25.

The singer-songwriter last week became the first living artist to achieve the feat of two top five hits in both the Official Singles Chart and the Official Albums Chart simultaneously since The Beatles.
