Singer Adele is 'the star of 2011'
Date Posted: 28/02/11
Adele has been crowned as the star of 2011 after her single Someone Like You stayed at number one in the UK charts for a second week while her album 21 was the best-seller for the fifth time in a row.
Someone Like You has crossed the 100,000 sales mark for two successive weeks and comes on the back of an impressive performance at the Brit Awards recently.
Martin Talbot, from the Official Chart Company, said that Adele could well turn out to be this year's success story.
"Adele is proving to truly be the star of 2011. Her album has already become the must-have release of the year and for Someone Like You to top 100,000 sales for two successive weeks demonstrates what a huge hit it is," he added.
The star is preparing to play in front of those booking Leeds hotels when she kicks off her UK tour on Thursday April 14th at the city's O2 Academy.
