Adele’s 21 looks set to return to the top of the UK artist albums chart for the first time in seven weeks as XL faces the possibility of having three releases in the top five.
Having already spent 16 weeks at number one, 21 has now opened up a lead of around 1,350 sales over the rest of the market at this early stage of the week, according to the Official Charts Company.
Adele’s album was last at number one in May since when the top spot has been taken by Polydor acts Lady GaGa and Take That, Domino’s Arctic Monkeys and RCA’s Beyonce whose 4 spent a second week at number one last Sunday.
With The Horrors’ third album Skying showing up as a new entry at three and Adele’s 19 dropping 4-5 so far this week, XL presently has three of the top five sellers. Beyonce is at two, while the top five is completed by Lady GaGa’s Born This Way down 3-4.
