October 6th, 2011 8:36am EDT

Adele Ailing Adele has been given something to smile about a day after announcing the cancellation of her upcoming North American tour - she's back at the top of the U.S. pop charts.

The Brit's "Someone Like You" has returned to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 countdown, ending Maroon 5's run at the top with "Moves Like Jagger," which falls to two.

Foster the People's "Pumped Up Kicks," Gym Class Heroes' "Stereo Hearts" and LMFAO's former number one "Party Rock Anthem" round out the new top five, while Rihanna makes chart history at nine with her 20th top 10 hit.

She has managed the feat in just six years and four months with "We Found Love" - beating Madonna's record by almost five months.

B.o.B. scores the week's highest debut, crashing in at seven with "Strange Clouds."
