IT'S JAY Z AND SARA B!
"Magna Carta" Stays at #1 on Album Chart, Sara Bareilles Has Top Debut; Ace Hood Bows at #4
Jay Z (whose hyphen we've agreed, after much soul-searching, to retire) retains the #1 spot on this week's Album Chart, as his Roc-a-Fella/Roc Nation release Magna Carta Holy Grail moves 127k in its sophomore week (down 76%).

But a trio of debuts also appear in the Top 5, notably Epic's Sara Bareilles, who claims the #2 position with 68k for her The Blessed Unrest. She's followed by the 24th installment (but who's counting) of Kidz Bop Kids (Razor & Tie) with 61k and Cash Money/Republic rapper Ace Hood, whose Trials & Tribulations scored 32k.

Other bows include Disney's Teen Beach ST (#9), Vanguard's Matt Nathanson (#14) Capitol's Sick Puppies (#15).

Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience, Part 1 (RCA) returns to the Top 10 with a 29% spike. Other big bumps were enjoyed WB Nashville's Blake Shelton (#11, +20%), RCA's P!nk (#23, +23%), Island/IDJ's Fall Out Boy (#30, +43%, the biggest percentage gainer) and Big Machine's Taylor Swift (#33, +24%).

To pore over all the pretty numbers in detail, go here.

Streeting now are Hollywood's Selena Gomez and Cash Money/Republic's Rich Gang, among others.

We'd love to hang around and chat, but we've got some fires to put out. Damn you, Amanda Bynes!
