As her other single 'Rolling in The Deep' and two albums are in the top fives of both album and singles charts in the same week, she becomes the first artist to match The Beatles' record.

Adele has charged up the charts in her native Britain to grab the number one spot with her latest single. The singer's "Someone Like You" shot up 46 places to top the U.K. singles chart on Sunday, February 20.

Her second album, "21", remains at number one in the albums rundown, and thanks to the ongoing success of her debut, "19", and hit single "Rolling in The Deep", Adele becomes the first artist since The Beatles in 1964 to score two albums and two singles in the top fives of both album and singles charts in the same week.

Jessie J falls a spot to two in the new singles chart, while Lady GaGa's "Born This Way" debuts at three. As well as Adele's albums at one and four, Mumford & Sons' "Sigh No More", Rihanna's "Loud" and "Doo - Wops & Hooligans" by Bruno Mars make up the U.K. top five.

This is SO well deserved! Adele is absolutely incredible and I cannot wait for "21" to come out TOMORROW! She's on David Letterman tonight so I'm really stoked to see that. So much love for her! <3
