What a week for Adele! Her 25 nabbed another week atop the Billboard 200 chart, making the week ending Feb. 25 her 10th nonconsecutive week at No. 1, Billboard reports. Per Nielsen Music, 25 sold 81,000 pure album sales that week.

The 2015 album had landed its 9th No. 1 the week before, after Adele had performed “All I Ask” at the Grammys. This week’s success follows a stellar week for the British singer, during which she won four BRIT Awards, including one for British Album of the Year, and performed “When We Were Young.”

All this lands 25 in an elite group of albums that have had 10 or more nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1. Recent entries into the club include Taylor Swift’s 1989, which had 11 weeks at the top since its 2004 release, and 2013’s Frozen soundtrack, which had 13 weeks, and 25’s predecessor 21, which spent 24 nonconsecutive weeks at No 1.
