Adele’s 25 returns to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 after a two-week vacation from the top of the list, as it rises 2-1 in its 10th week on the chart.

The album earned 116,000 equivalent album units in the week ending Jan. 28, according to Nielsen Music (down 21 percent).

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The new Feb. 13, 2016-dated chart (where Adele returns to at No. 1) will be posted in full to Billboard’s websites on Tuesday, Feb. 2.

In the latest tracking week, 25 sold another 97,000 in pure album sales (down 20 percent), which brings its cumulative sum to 7.94 million in the U.S. It is likely 25 will reach 8 million sold in the next week.
