Adele Set To Sink ‘Titanic’, ‘Set Fire To The Rain’ Burns Up Billboard Hot 100

And now for our weekly praise of THE Adelegend.

For a 16th week, Adele graces the top of the Billboard 200 Albums Chart with ’21’, the same number of weeks the massively successful soundtrack to ‘Titanic’ enjoyed at the summit back in 1998. While her 3rd single ‘Set Fire To The Rain’ roars up to # 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, just behind Rihanna’s ‘We Found Love’ feat. Calvin Harris that holds the # 1 spot for an astounding 10th week.

‘Set Fire To The Rain’ is pretty much on track to become Adele’s 3rd #1 single probably within the next two weeks itself, as it becomes the highest selling digital single in America this week, moving up to # 1 on the Digital Songs Chart (her 3rd consecutive topper here) with 193,000 in digital sales, while the song also rises in radio airplay, becoming the highest airplay gainer on Radio Songs Chart for a second consecutive week, moving up from # 12 to # 5. A combination of the Digital and Radio charts is what predicts the final position on the Billboard Hot 100, and with Adele already leading the Digital Chart with an unprecedented rise on the Radio Songs Chart, ‘Set Fire To The Rain’ should have no problem S-L-A-Y-I-N-G. And the Grammy’s are just a month away. With 6 nominations and a buzz created about her rumored performance, the Adele reign will not be over for quite awhile #SitAndDeal.
