We now have something else to be grateful to our Moms for.

Thanks to giving the gift of music on Mother’s Day, the HITS Album sales chart has a brisk week, with Adele spending a seventh time at #1, while seven newcomers enter the Top 10.

The U.K. pop diva’s XL/Columbia album 21 keeps steaming along, racking up another 155k to its total, soaring towards 1.6 million…with no end in sight.

Capitol/EMI cops the next two slots, starting with the Beastie Boys’ long-delayed Hot Sauce Committee, Part 2, which racked up 125k at #2, just ahead of the 38th edition of Now, at #3, with 124k.

Sub Pop’s Seattle neo-folkies Fleet Foxes debut at #4 with Helplessness Blues, while Island/IDJ’s Jennifer Lopez bows at #5 with Love? scoring 80k.

Reprise’s Stevie Nicks (#6), Epic’s Sade Ultimate Collection (#7) and Atlantic’s Musiq Soulchild (#8) all debut, while Glassnote’s Mumford & Sons (#9) and Broken Bow’s Jason Aldean (#10) round out the Top 10.

Other new Top 50 entries include Eleven Seven’s Nikki Sixx project Sixx: A.M. (#11) and Warner Bros.’ classic Fleetwood Mac Rumours album (#13), which benefits from last week’s themed Glee episode and a $7.99 iTunes sale.

Also debuting are Average Joe’s country singer Colt Ford (#28), MPCA’s Donny & Marie (#30, thanks to a QVC special) and My Block/Malaco’s Kelly Price (#39).

Capitol Nashville/EMI’s Lady Antebellum is the week’s biggest gainer, moving #43-23, thanks to their American Idol performance.

Other major movers include Big Machine’s Taylor Swift (#38-27, +61%), LaFace/JLG’s P!nk (#22-19, +53%), Columbia’s Glee: The Music Vol. 5 (#45-41, +46%) and Mary Mary (#47, +41%) and Arista/RMG’s Jennifer Hudson (#35-31, +40%).

Hitting retail this week are Universal Republic’s The Lonely Island, the musical comedy troupe fronted by SNL’s Andy Samberg; XL/Beggars Banquet’s Tyler, the Creator, part of L.A.’s notorious Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All hip-hop collective; Atlantic’s Christina Perri, Mercury’s Matthew Morrison, Hear Music/Concord’s The Cars and Columbia’s neo-soul guitar slinger Raphael Saadiq along with Atlanta-based rockers Manchester Orchestra.
