2012 is starting out a lot like 2011 on the Canadian album charts - with Adele on top.

The British sensation's mega-selling "21" continued its mastery of the charts into the new year, staying at No. 1 for a second straight week, selling another 19,000 copies.

Her grand total is now inching closer and closer to the 1 million mark here - she is now at a staggering 955,000 since its release 46 weeks ago, according to Nielsen SoundScan numbers.

She occupied the top spot south of the border as well, selling 124,000 copies of "21" in the U.S., according to Billboard.com.

Back here, LMFAO's "Sorry For Party Rocking" and Coldplay's "Mylo Xyloto" stayed put at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, and the Black Keys shot up three spots to No. 4.

Rihanna's "Talk the Talk" spent its seventh week at No. 5., Nickelback's "Here and Now" came down two to No. 6, and the "MuchDance 2012" rebounded three positions to No. 7.

The rest of the top ten comprised of Skrillex's "Bangarang" at No. 8, Drake's "Take Care" at No. 9, and Amy Winehouse's "Lioness: Hidden Treasures" at No. 10.

In the U.S., Drake placed second, followed by the Black Keys in third, Young Jeezy's "TM103: Hustlerz Ambition" in fourth, and Coldplay in fifth.
