UK Chart Roundup: Adele And Take That Get A Post-BRITs Boost

Adele's 21 has been on top of the UK album chart for the past four weeks, and while her single "Rolling In The Deep" peaked at #2 (so far), the soulful singer's "Someone Like You" has now leapt to the top of the Brit chart thanks to her performance of it at the BRITs on Tuesday.

Here in the States, 21 will finally be released this coming Tuesday. And thanks to the inclusion of "Rolling In The Deep" in the trailer for trash flick I Am Number Four—which opened this weekend—the song has now cracked the Top 10 on U.S. iTunes.

Like Adele, Take That see a bit of a boost, though not as big, following their military-themed BRITs performance of "Kidz." The single slides in at #31 a week ahead of its official release.

The UK Top 10:

1. "Someone Like You" - Adele *1 week*
2. "Price Tag" - Jessie J feat. B.o.B
3. "Born This Way" - Lady Gaga
4. "Rolling In The Deep" - Adele
5. "Champion" - Chipmunk feat. Chris Brown  
6. "S&M (Come On)" - Rihanna
7. "Grenade" - Bruno Mars
8. "Eyes Wide Shut" - JLS feat. Tinie Tempah
9. "Yeah 3X" - Chris Brown
10. "Higher" - Taio Cruz feat. Kylie Minogue
