Adele’s chart streak continues

Lopez's 'Love' looms large with Tuesday bow

Reflecting a somnolent post-Easter sales frame, Adele’s “21” hung tough at No. 1 on the U.S. album chart last week, but Jennifer Lopez stands to supply a fresh shot of “Love” in the coming frame.

“21” prevailed at the top with sales of 124,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan data for the week ended Sunday. That’s 19% off the Columbia album’s figures for the previous week, but no major new releases challenged the title, which has now held the top slot for six non-consecutive weeks.

However, “American Idol” judge and veteran diva Lopez’s new Island set “Love,” which reached stores Tuesday, is poised to unseat Adele’s long-legged collection with a big TV-stoked debut.

The chart lacked a new top 10 debut for the first time since January. The No. 2 album, Foo Fighters’ “Wasting Light” (RCA), shifted just 34,000 copies (with a 52% decline), trailing the leader by 90,000 units.

Top five included Mumford & Sons’ “Sigh No More” (No. 3, 32,000 units, off 17%), Britney Spears’ “Femme Fatale” (No. 4, 30,000, off 34%) and the “Lemonade Mouth” soundtrack (No. 5, 30,000, down 57%).

Other top 10 titles included Chris Brown’s “F.A.M.E.” (No. 6, 28,000, off 22%), the new “Glee” package “The Warblers” (No. 7, 28,000, down 68%), and three titles with nearly identical totals — Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” (No. 8, 24,000, off 31%), Wiz Khalifa’s “Rolling Papers” (No. 9, 24,000, down 30%) and Paul Simon’s “So Beautiful or So What” (No. 10, 24,000, off 36%).Besides the Lopez set, the Beastie Boys’ long-delayed “Hot Sauce Committee Part Two” and a new “Now” hits compilation are among the coming week’s top chart contenders.
