Washington: Adele’s latest album ‘21’ has reached a milestone last achieved by the ‘Titanic’ soundtrack back in 1998 in spite of having trouble with her vocal chords.

The British singer has been forced to cancel all of her 2011 performances as a result of a planned throat surgery.

It’s the first album to spend that many weeks at number one since the soundtrack for the motion picture ‘Titanic’.
