Published: 12:01PM Friday December 16, 2011 Source: ONE News

UK singer Adele has dominated the end of year New Zealand music charts.

The 23-year-old Londoner's album 21 topped the albums chart, reaching the number one album spot on seven occasions.

The album also sat at the top for 26 non-consecutive weeks, a new record.

Adele's huge popularity also saw her debut album 19 make its NZ chart debut, despite being released three years ago.

US group LMFAO took out the top single spot with their tune Party Rock Anthem. The song held number one for 11 weeks.

Maroon 5's Moves Like Jagger, featuring Christina Aguilera, was the second most popular single.

Two singles from Adele's 21 album, Someone Like You and Rolling in the Deep, took out third and fourth spots respectively. 

Kiwi acts

Out of local acts, Dunedin-formed Six60 were the most successful of the year.

Their upbeat debut album Six60 topped the charts for two weeks this year, ending up at number six in the 2011 Top Albums chart.

The album produced three Top 10 singles, including Don't Forget Your Roots, the top-selling single by a New Zealand artist.

Their songs Rise Up 2.0 and Only To Be also made the Top 10.

Another huge Kiwi hit was Dave Baxter's (of Avalanche City) debut single Love Love Love, which made number one on release and ended up at number 14 in the 2011 Top 20 Singles chart.
