The Brit last managed the feat in 2011, when Rolling in the Deep hit the top of the countdown and stayed there for two months.

Her latest hit, Hello, rocketed to the top of the chart last month (Nov15).

Hello's ongoing success marks a third consecutive chart double for Adele, whose comeback album, 25, kept Coldplay's A Head Full of Stars off the top of the U.S. album chart on Sunday (13Nov15).

The latest chart news comes as Adele's American fans prepare for her concert special Adele Live in New York City, which will air on Monday night (14Dec15), and hours after she announced plans for a U.S. summer tour in 2016.

Meanwhile, Justin Bieber's Sorry stays put at two for a sixth successive week, and Drake's Hotline Bling remains at number three.

Bieber's What Do You Mean? and Love Yourself round out the new top five.
