Adele is unstoppable. Her album has spent 15 weeks at #1 in the US now--most since the Titanic soundtrack spent 16 weeks at #1 in 1998. Notably, Adele's run at #1 is split up all throughout the last year, which is remarkable longevity. "Set Fire to the Rain" will surely hit #1, perhaps next week, since it's #1 in sales and the fastest growing track at radio. Then there's the Grammy Awards coming up soon, which will only boost her profile further. It's making my head spin!
