Adele Holds Number One, Foster The People Finally Make It

It’s 2011 déjà vu all over again, with Adele hopping back atop the album chart last week and staying there this week too.

Added to that, there were exactly zero new entries on the chart today, but it makes sense since new releases were very thin on the ground last week.

There was a bit of movement though. 360’s Falling & Flying is up to 11 from 22, Skrillex’s ‘Bangarang’ EP shot up from 44 to 14, the Alvin & The Chipmunks Chipwrecked soundtrack comes up to 23 from 42, and Grouplove’s visit put their Never Trust A Happy Song back in the chart at 30.

The big story, and relief, is that Foster The People have finally hit number one on the singles chart with ‘Pumped Up Kicks’, over a year since the song was officially released. Their Torches album also got a bump to number five, through ad placement and a BDO visit.

Also on the singles chart, Flo Rida’s ‘Wild Ones’ with Sia is in at number two from 24, and Timomatic’s ‘Set It Off’ climbs to four from 12.

Nothing particularly high-profile was released on Friday so we can assume that Adele will hold number one next week as well, unless the ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ juggernaut can get Torches up there after almost nine months in the chart.
