The 'Someone Like You' singer continues to dominate with her album after scoring a 24th week at the summit.

Adele's second studio album '21' has returned to the top of the US Billboard 200 chart after knocking John Mayer's 'Born And Raised' from the number one spot.

The 'Rolling In The Deep' star's album has remained a dominate force on the chart since its release which was back in America in February 2011.

The last time she hit the summit was back on the 17th March, and this is now the 24th non-consecutive week she has enjoyed in the number one position.

The album has now equaled the same amount of weeks as the soundtrack to the film Saturday Night Fever and Prince's soundtrack to 'Purple Rain'.

The record for most weeks at the top of the chart still remains with the soundtrack to West Side Story at 54 weeks and Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' second on 37 weeks.

Adele's New Album 21

The singer's album sold 75,000 copies last week, according to Nielsen SoundScan which was apparently 2,000 more then nearest rival 'Thirty Miles West' from country star Alan Jackson.

Meanwhile, Adele has been tipped to be performing the soundtrack to the upcoming James Bond film Skyfall - with Casino Royale composer Chris Cornell giving his backing to the 'Set Fire To Rain' star.
