What more can you say – Adele! It’s all about Adele. Well it’s not “all” about Adele, but the chart is definitely top heavy thanks to her. 25 Chart takeaways, here we go!

1) Adele continues to kill the competition, spending her sixth week atop the Billboard 200 with 25. The numbers were her least robust yet, but she still handily bested the runner up album….

2) That runner up album referenced in takeaway #1? Justin Bieber’s Purpose, which has continued to rack up sales, tracks and streams, despite being overshadowed by Adele’s juggernaut 25. Guess what Bieber sat last week on the Billboard 200? #2.

3) Twenty One Pilots see their Blurryface ascend from #11 to #3 in its 33rd week on the charts. Vessel also sees a spike in sales from #53 to #21.

4) Fetty Wap’s self-titled debut album improves 16 spots from #21 to #5. Fetty Wap has graced the charts for 14 weeks.
