Weakend Chart Preview

Adele's 21 holds at #1 for an astonishing 22nd week. It is the only album to be #1 so far this year. On the horizon, however, are new releases from Bruce Springsteen, One Direction and The Shins, all of which could possibly debut at #1. Interestingly, all of these releases are also from Adele's label, Columbia Records. As a possible spoiler to an all-Columbia Q1, Universal's Hunger Games soundtrack hits on 3/20 and will be a formidable challenger for the top spot. Here's how it looks one week after the Grammys.
