Singer/songwriter Adele, who has won Grammy award for Best New Artist in 2009, has pushed down teen singer Justin Bieber to second spot at US Billboard chart. According to BBC, Adele's second album '21' went straight to the top of the chart in its first week of release after it sold 352,000 copies.
Justin Bieber's 'Never Say Never: The Remixes' was pushed to number two by Adele's 21. With this on top, Adele has now two albums in the top 20 after her debut record '19' leapt back up the chart from 50 to 16. Meanwhile, she continues to reign the UK Billboard chart for a third week.
However, the Official Charts Company announced that Adele is the first living artist to achieve the feat of two top five hits in both the UK Singles Chart and the UK Album Chart simultaneously since The Beatles in 1964. The album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200.
