Adele’s “Set Fire To Rain” Crowns Billboard’s Hot 100, While “21” Sits Atop The Albums Chart!!!

Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain” takes over atop the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, dethroning Rihanna‘s “We Found Love,” featuring Calvin Harris, after 10 weeks and making history in the process. 

As Adele’s set “21” leads the Billboard 200 album chart for a 17th week, “Fire” is the third single to top the Hot 100 while “21” has sat atop the album tally. First single “Rolling in the Deep” began a seven-week Hot 100 reign the week of May 21, 2011, when “21” was in its sixth week in charge of the Billboard 200. 

Follow-up “Someone Like You” crowned the Hot 100 the week of Sept. 17, 2011. In the song’s fifth and final week at No. 1 (Nov. 5), “21” returned to the Billboard 200 apex for a 13th frame. 

With “21” at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 four another four weeks as of this week, “Fire” (Adele’s third career Hot 100 topper) makes the set the first by a single artist to have led the Billboard 200 concurrently with three Hot 100 No. 1s.

AMAZING! It’s hard to tell who had a better 2011 and whose going to have a better 2012, Adele or Rihanna. Both are doing incredibly well right now, destroying major charts the world over and make big moves at radio and Billboard!
