If you have been observing the Billboard charts during the last year then might have concluded that Adele has never truly left the summits of the listings; she simply took breaks. As such, it was completely unsurprising when the singer topped the Billboard Hot 100 this week and effectively ousted Rihanna.
Adele and Jessie J dominated the list of 2012 BRIT Awards nominations with 3 nods each and now they have extended their rule to the charts. Impressively, both women have returned to the top of the UK Albums Chart and the Official UK Singles Chart, respectively.
Two major achievements were logged in the Billboard history books this week but they occurred on two completely different charts by two extremely dissimilar artists. Rihanna and Adele have both made history in their individual ways on the Billboard Hot 100 and the Billboard 200, respectively.
It appears that 2012 will be the year of Jessie J. Indeed, after scoring three nominations for this year’s BRIT Awards and a spot on the panel of ‘The Voice (UK)’, the singer has vaulted to the top of the Official UK Singles Chart and claimed her 2nd #1 single on the tally.

However, thanks to the continuous gains in airplay of her latest hit, ‘We Found Love’, the colourful vixen has finally matched the success of her longest-running [...]
Rihanna’s ‘We Found Love’ has clocked a 6th week atop the Billboard Hot 100 and increased her cumulative career total time at the top to 40 weeks yet it was her mentor who achieved a historic feat on the tally. Jay-Z has achieved his 18th top 10 single on the lineup – the most for [...]
Usher and David Guetta ventured to ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ last evening as they performed their hit tune ‘Without You’ at the outdoor venue. However, unlike earlier that day when Usher’s hair stole the spotlight ‘The Ellen Degeneres Show’, the duo put forward a light show with carefully timed choreography to thrill the crowd.
Usher had been sporting an untamed mohawk throughout 2011 and he made no changes to the peculiar hairstyle when he visited ‘The Ellen Degeneres Show’ earlier today. The singer joined David Guetta for a performance of their global hit ‘Without You’ and proved to the viewers that they don’t need to comb their hair to [...]
