The success story that is Adele’s career this year has hit new heights after it was announced that the British singer will be entered into the Guinness Book of Records.
The singer saw the album break records for most consecutive weeks at number one and most cumulative weeks at number one after 21 hit the top spot on more than one occasion.
Indeed, its first stay at the top of the charts lasted a mammoth 11 weeks, while subsequent stays have seen the star clock up 21 weeks as the country’s best-selling record.
The success does not end their however as the songstress is also the first woman to have two singles and two albums in the UK’s top five at the same time.
This is after the buzz surrounding 21 prompted a number of music lovers to check out Adele’s back catalogue, resulting in more sales of debut album 19.
Craig Glenday, editor-in-chief for Guinness World Records, said: “Adele is a wonderful role model for aspiring singers – and for all young people.
“Her unique vocal talents have rightly propelled her to stardom on both sides of the Atlantic, and her honest attitude to fame is refreshing.”
The news comes shortly after fans were left disappointed after Adele was forced to pull out of a string of shows due to a chest infection.
Bajan pop princess Rihanna has also been entered into the book after becoming the first woman to have a UK number one in five consecutive years.
The Umbrella singer has topped the charts in the UK every year since 2007.
