Adele’s “21” Has Fallen Off the Album Chart for the First Time in 353 Weeks



Adele’s album “21” has fallen off the charts for the first time in 353 weeks.  It debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 in March of 2011, and it had been there ever since…until now.

In between, it went 14 times platinum, and was the best-selling album in the U.S. and Canada in both 2011 AND 2012.  In its first two years on the Billboard 200, it never fell below #35.

Assuming “21” ever makes its way back to the charts, it’s still a LONG way from a record.

The album with the most weeks in the Top 200 is PINK FLOYD’s “Dark Side of the Moon,” with 933 weeks.
