Adele has held on to the top spot in the UK album chart for the 11th week with her album 21, according to The Official Charts Company.

Last week, the singer broke the record for the longest time at number one in the UK album chart by a female solo artist.

The previous record was held by Madonna's first greatest hits record, The Immaculate Collection, in 1990.

Her debut album, 19, moved down one place to number three.

The album has also now set a record for the most downloaded album to date on Amazon.co.uk, overtaking previous record-holder The Circus from Take That.

Roger Greensmith, of Amazon, said: "Adele's success, particularly following her Brit Awards performance in February, has been phenomenal.

"2011 is already shaping up to be Adele's year with 21 achieving so much and her previous album 19 is also flying high in the Amazon MP3 download charts as our second most-downloaded album of the year."

Adele's Make You Feel My Love moved up one spot in the singles chart to number 39, marking its 53rd week in the top 40.

Katy B's new album On A Mission entered the chart at number two.

Scottish indie rockers Glasvegas entered the album chart at number 10 with Euphoric Heartbreak.

In the singles chart, Jennifer Lopez stayed at number one with On The Floor, which samples Kaoma's 1989 single Lambada and features rapper Pit Bull.

LMFAO's Party Rock Anthem moved up one place to number two.

Katy Perry's ET, featuring Kanye West, jumped from number 12 to number five.
