South Park - Book Of Mormon Makes Album Chart History As Adele Scores Another Double

Subscribe to South Park alerts

South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone's smash-hit Broadway show Book Of Mormon is now breaking album chart records in America.
After dominating the Tony Awards on Sunday (12Jun11), the musical's soundtrack has shot to number three on the Billboard 200 countdown, making it the highest charting Broadway cast album ever.
With 61,000 sales for the week, the album also scores the biggest sales week for a cast release since the new chart was introduced in 1991.
The new countdown also gives Adele another chart double - her album 21 returns to number one for a 10th non-consecutive week. The British singer's Rolling in The Deep will score a sixth week atop the Hot 100 singles chart when it's officially released on Thursday (16Jun11).
Last week's number one album - Lady Gaga's Born This Way - falls to two, and new entries from Tech N9ne and Ronnie Dunn round out the new top five.
Meanwhile, Adele's Rolling in the Deep is keeping Pitbull's Give Me Everything off the top of the Hot 100, and LMFAO's Party Rock Anthem jumps up to three on the new countdown.
