But BeyHive aside, did you really expect a person with a good set of ears to declare Rihanna as an A class vocalist?
How common is the feat of tallying two titles simultaneously in both charts' top fives? Since the Billboard 200 became an all-encompassing (stereo and mono) chart the week of Aug. 17, 1963, just three acts have earned the honor: Adele, the Beatles and 50 Cent.
For an astonishing 13 weeks in 1964, the Beatles achieved such domination, with at least two titles in each chart's top five at the same time. Most notably, the week that the Beatles monopolized the Hot 100's top five (April 4, 1964), the group also held the top two positions on the Billboard 200, where Meet the Beatles! reigned and Introducing … the Beatles ranked at No. 2.
Beatlemania, meet Adele adulation. In between, there was a 50 Cent frenzy.
The week of May 3, 2003, 50 Cent topped the Hot 100 with "In Da Club" and held at No. 5 with "21 Questions." (There must be something about that number, 21, when it comes to chart records). The rapper was also money on the Billboard 200 that week: his The New Breed bowed at No. 3 and his Get Rich or Die Tryin' remained in the top five (3-5).
As 50 Cent did not have another song in the Hot 100's top 10 that week, Adele and the Beatles are the only acts ever to post three songs in the Hot 100's top 10 and two albums in the Billboard 200's top five in the same week.
Yet more evidence that Adele's current domination ranks among the rarest in Billboard chart history.
