British pop star Katy Perry has managed to spend an unprecedented full year in the US chart’s top 10. Her popularity soared with “California Gurls” debuting at No. 2 last May, spending six weeks at No. 1. This was soon followed by “Teenage Dream,” “Firework” and then “E.T.”
However, Perry was recently knocked from her perch by another British sensation Adele, as her song “Rolling in the Deep” rose one place to No. 1, dropping Katy Perry’s “E.T.” down to No. 2 after five weeks at the top.
Adele has been slowly climbing in popularity in the states since her debut album “19″ launched in 2009 when she reached No. 21 with her song “Chasing Pavements.” Many predict that her current album “21″ will extend to eight weeks at No. 1 on the U.S. chart when listings are updated next Wednesday.
Adele and Katy Perry have both dominated the album charts on both sides of the Atlantic for some time, giving their American counterparts something to think about.
