The singer's second album 21 remains atop the Billboard 200 after selling 247,000 copies over the past seven days.
21 was previously declared the longest-running number one record since Prince and The Revolution's Purple Rain, which ran for 24 weeks at the top in 1984/85, reports Billboard.
According to analysts, Adele could hold off Bruce Springsteen's Wrecking Ball next week as each set is predicted to sell over 200,000 copies.
If Adele remains at the top, she will match Prince's record and be moving forward to break it the week after with 25 non-consecutive weeks at number one.
This week's sales now mean Adele's 21 has sold 2.07 million units in the US in 2012 alone.
