There’s just three weeks to go before 2011 draws to a close and the Official Charts Company compile our end of year charts. But to give you an idea of how 2011 is shaping up, here’s how the Official Top 40 Singles and Official Top 40 Albums charts stand so far.

However, with the busiest shopping weeks of the year upon us, this could all dramatically change. On the Official Top 40 Albums Of 2011, Adele’s ‘21’, which recently became the biggest selling album of the 21st Century, seems uncatchable with over 3.5 million sales under its belt. But, for the rest of the Official Albums Chart, there’s still everything to play for!

Based on this week’s sales so far, Bruno Mars’ debut album, ‘Doo-wops And Hooligans’ (Number 3), is nearly neck-and-neck with Adele’s 2008 album, ‘19’ (2), while Michael Buble’s ‘Christmas’ album, which was released just under two months ago, looks set to overtake Rihanna (4) and Lady Gaga (5). Closer to home, British singer songwriter Ed Sheeran’s ‘+’ (8) is getting dangerously close to taking the biggest-selling debut of 2011 title away from Jessie J’s ‘Who You Are’ (6).

Adele is also leading the Official Top 40 Singles Of 2011, too. Her track ‘Someone Like You’ is sitting comfortably in pole position with 1.2 million sales, while only a few thousand sales separate Numbers 2 - 4 (Jessie J’s ‘Pricetag’, LMFAO’s ‘Party Rock Anthem’ and Maroon 5’s ‘Moves Like Jagger’) who are all hovering around the 950,000 mark. This could all change by the weekend when sales start to show for X Factor winners Little Mix, and The Military Wives, Nirvana, Joe McElderry and the cast of The Only Way Is Essex launch their bids to become this year’s Official Christmas Number 1.
