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.
