Quantcast
The [Lady Antebellum] album is now at 1.5 million and counting as 2010’s top seller, a real coup for the label’s rainmaker Mike Dungan, the man behind the success of Keith Urban and Darius Rucker.
FOUR TIMES A LADY
Gospel Artist Marvin Sapp, R&T's The Edge Compilation and White Stripes Debut, as Capitol Nashville Act Once More Returns to #1
Better treat her like a Lady.

For the second time this year, Capitol Nashville’s Lady Antebellum returns to the top of the charts as Need You Now spends its fourth week at #1, with 91k, the first time in 29 weeks the leader has sold less than 100k.

The album is now at 1.5 million and counting as 2010’s top seller, a real coup for the label’s rainmaker Mike Dungan, the man behind the success of Keith Urban and Darius Rucker.

Verity/JLG gospel star Marvin Sapp’s Here I Am debuts at #2, with 80k, just ahead of last week’s topper, DTP/Def Jam/IDJ hip-hop icon Ludacris, as Battle of the Sexes falls to #3.

Razor & Tie’s alternative compilation, The Edge, available in both two and three-CD versions, which include songs by Thirty Seconds to Mars, Panic! at the Disco and Hole, among others, also bows at #4.

Interscope’s Lady Gaga The Fame deluxe edition (#5), Epic’s Sade (#6), Interscope’s Black Eyed Peas (#7), Experience Hendrix/Legacy’s Jimi Hendrix (#8), Virgin/EMI’s Gorillaz (#9) and Island/IDJ’s Justin Bieber (#10) round out the Top 10.

Third Man/WB’s White Stripes soundtrack to its documentary Under Great White Northern Light tops the rest of the chart newcomers at #11, along with Dropkick Murphys on their self-titled label (#32), ATO’s Drive By Truckers (#34) and Universal Republic’s Flobots (#39).

After the release of the Twilight Saga: New Moon DVD this week (which sold more than 4 million copies!), both Chop Shop/Atlantic soundtracks return to the Top 50, with New Moon at #22 and the original Twilight at #46. St. Patrick’s Day finds Manhattan/EMI’s Celtic Woman also re-entering at #47.

Big gainer is Interscope’s Lady Gaga Fame Monster EP, which moves #21-14, +23%, followed by Justin Bieber (#10, +19%) on the heels of this week’s release of My World 2.0.

Other than Bieber, the other new releases of note include J/RMG’s Monica album and Merge’s She and Him.
