So as expected Adele really closed the gap, but not enough. Still 12 weeks over 100k is fantastic.

no radio support for TTWE???? +wtf+

Hardly surprising really given how quickly it dropped: 55-21-55-120 is not the sort of chart run radio is going to think 'OH we need to support that'.

Singles

After two weeks as the nation’s biggest selling single, Jennifer Lopez’s On The Floor dips to number two on sales of 70,943 copies.

It is replaced at the summit by Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO, Lauren Bennett and GoonRock. Selling 91,421 copies, it is the second number one for LMFAO - following Gettin’ Over You, a chart-topper last June credited to David Guetta and Chris Willis feat. Fergie and LMFAO – and the first for Bennett and GoonRock.

The track is the first single from LMFAO’s upcoming second album, Sorry For Party Rocking, and sold at a low level for four weeks before exploding to a number 22 debut last month. It has since moved 3-2-1, becoming the first single to ascend the top three a place at a time since Kid Rock’s All Summer Long in August 2008.

Party Rock Anthem is also number one in New Zealand at present but has thus far not ignited in the act’s US homeland, though it jumps 88-68 on the Hot 100 there this week.

Number one in America for the third straight week, E.T. becomes the fourth top three single here from Katy Perry’s second album, Teenage Dream, improving 5-3 with sales growing 16.7% week-on-week to 52,988. Snoop Dogg’s Sweat is also on the move, jumping 9-4, with sales up 45.4% at 43,742.

The only new arrival in the Top 10 was the Top 75’s top debut last week – Beautiful People, which leaps 20-8 (38,789 sales) for Chris Brown feat. Benny Benassi – but with Jessie J‘s Price Tag dipping 10-12, Adele’s Someone Like You (down 3-6, 40,589 sales) is the only single in the Top 10 by a British artist.

After perching at number 27 for three weeks, Birdy’s Skinny Love takes flight. The track has moved 29-25-27-27-27-22 since its release for the 14 year old from Hampshire, whose real name is Jasmine Van Den Bogaerde. The original version of the song, by American band Bon Iver, has never charted but has sold more than 38,000 copies since 2008, Birdy’s has sold 73,785 copies, including 12,984 in the latest frame.

The Arctic Monkeys’ fourth album, Suck It And See, drops in June, and first single Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair is a new entry, debuting at number 28 (10,478 sales). Although not released until Friday, Lady GaGa’s Judas is this week’s highest new entry, debuting t number 14 (20,729 sales).

After falling for four weeks in a row, Rihanna’s S&M rebounds 12-7, with sales up 55.12% at 40,188. That’s overwhelmingly the result of a new version of the song, performed as a duet with Britney Spears, being released. It’s had an even better reception in America, where it is currently the top-selling download, and likely to propel S&M to the top of the Hot 100 later this week.

Overall singles sales, at 2,954,513, are up 2.16% week-on-week and 21.23% above same week 2010 sales of 2,437,020.

Albums

Foo Fighters wrestle control of the album chart from Adele this week, ending the 22 year old’s 11 week stranglehold, while racking up their third number one album.

The group’s seventh studio album, Wasting Light, sold 114,557 copies to storm to a number one debut, despite the fairly tepid reception accorded first single Rope, which debuted and peaked at number 22 six weeks ago.

Foo Fighters previously topped the chart with One By One, which sold 91,471 when making its debut at the summit in 2002, and 2007’s Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace (135,685). Foo Fighters best ever first week didn’t bring them a number one, however: In Your Honor debuted at number two behind Coldplay’s X & Y in 2005, with first week sales of 159,179.

Although finally finishing up second best, Adele’s 21 continues to sell at a cracking pace – its sales were off just 6.2% (at 107,408) last week. While that’s its lowest weekly sale to date, the album is sure to register an increase and almost certain to return to number one next week, as business picks up with the approach of Easter.

Adele’s debut album, 19, remains at number three (36,900 sales) and should also see a considerable uplift a week hence.

Securing their 10th album chart entry since January 2010, Glee Cast debut at number four (27,069 sales) with Glee: The Music – Volume 5. While that’s an impressive achievement, and includes seven Top 5 albums, it is put into sharp relief by the fact that sales of all 10 albums amount to 1,333,360, whereas 21 has sold 1,976,202 copies in the past 12 weeks all on its own.

Of course, Glee Cast’s tally of chart albums is minuscule compared to their haul of hit singles. With three more debuting this week, they have amassed 77 Top 75 entries – though only six have made the Top 20. The first single and album chart entries from the TV ensemble remain by far their biggest sellers – Glee – The Music: Season One – Volume 1 has sold 445,5086 copies, while the troupe’s first single hit, Don’t Stop Believin’, has sold 472,232 copies.

The only other Glee Cast single to sell even a sixth of that tally is the Halo/Walking On Sunshine medley (128,620 sales). Of 170 Glee Cast songs to be issued as singles, 149 of them have made the Top 200. I Could Have Danced All Night is the least successful, attracting sales of just 263.

Back on the artist album chart, there are three more debuts inside the Top 40 this week.

Bluegrass singer Alison Krauss and her group Union Station’s Paper Airplane comes in to land at number 11 (10,159 sales), her best placing outside of Robert Plant collaboration Raising Sand which reached number two and sold 683,698 copies; Devon band Metronomy’s third album, The English Riviera is their first to chart, debuting at number 28 (4,754 sales); and US group TV On The Radio make the list for the second time, arriving at number 33 (3,982 sales) with Nine Types Of Light.

Although Foo Fighters have knocked Adele off the top of the artist album chart, their Wasting Light is far from being the week’s biggest selling album. Inevitably, it’s the new Now That’s What I Call Music! instalment – Now! 78 – that takes that honour, breezing to first week sales of 218,934, and thundering to number one on both the compilation and combined album charts. It sold almost as many copies as all other compilations combined, commanding a 48.42% share of that segment of the market.

Now! albums almost never include more than one hit off an album but Now! 78 includes two from Rihanna’s Loud (What’s My Name and S&M) and two from Jessie J’s Who You Are (Do It Like A Dude and Price Tag). Rihanna is, of course, an established artist and Loud has sold more than 1.3m, but Who You Are has sold less than 300,000 thus far and is Jessie J’s debut set, so it’s surprising to find both of its hits available on an alternative set at such an early stage. Sales of both albums are down this week, with Loud falling 4-6 with sales down 19.90% at 14,275, and Who You Are dipping 5-7 (sales down 18.70% at 14,014).

Overall album sales, at 1,882,878, are 12.06% up week-on-week, and 17.41% above same week 2010 sales of 1,603,726. The most important release of the week in the entertainment sector was, however a DVD - Harry Potter And The Deathly Hollows, Part One, which storms to number one on the video chart, on sales of 1,574,164.
