Brit Award winners enjoy sales surge

Adele’s success at the 2016 Brit Awards has seen the singer enjoy a substantial spike in sales of her comeback album, 25, which remains at the top of the Official Albums Chart.

The Hello hitmaker, who will play two nights at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro Arena on March 25 and 26, scooped four awards at the ceremony on Wednesday night – including British album of the year for 25.

The album has now spent nine non-consecutive weeks at No.1.

adeleAdele’s current single, When We Were Young, has also hit a new high at No.13 in the charts following her performance at the Brits.

But the multi-million selling London-born songstress is not the only one cashing in on Brits exposure – according to figures from the Official Charts Company, Brit Award-winning performers dominate the album chart.

The late David Bowie, who was remembered in a stunning musical tribute by Lorde following moving speeches by friends Annie Lennox and Gary Oldman, is at No.2 with his Best Of Bowie retrospective.

Critics’ Choice Award winner Jack Garratt has entered the chart at No.3 with his debut album, Phase, and Justin Bieber – who won the award for international male solo artist – is one place below.
