Soulful British songstress Adele returns to the peak position on Billboard‘s Top 200 album chart with 21 for a third non-consecutive week after sales of 98,000 more copies. This sends last week’s #1, Lupe Fiasco’s Lasers, tumbling to #3 (47,000), while Rise Against’s sixth album Endgame enters the chart at #2 (85,000). The only other new album to dent the Top 10 is Travis Barker’s solo outing Give The Drummer Some (#9, 28,000). The Blink 182 skins-pounder is currently on tour with Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj and Mixmaster Mike in support of the album.

Overall, it’s a slow week. Next time around we’ll see how new releases from Jennifer Hudson, The Strokes, Ke$ha and current media lightning rod Chris Brown fare.
