BEYONCE’S 4 REAL

For Beyonce, the fourth time is also the charm.

The Grammy-winning Columbia Records diva’s 4 debuts at #1 this week with a total of 313k, more than enough to defeat labelmate Adele’s 21, which lands at #2, sporting 90k in sales.

Big Sean, the Detroit rapper and first release through Kanye West label G.O.O.D.’s new deal with Island Def Jam, bows at #3, just ahead of Hollywood Records teen pop star Selena Gomez & the Scene’s When the Sun Goes Down at #4. Last week’s chart-topper, Blues Babe/WB’s Jill Scott, rounds out the Top 5.

Broken Bow’s long-running Jason Aldean smash, My Kinda Party, is up 25%, moving #10-6, just ahead of 19/RCA/RMG American Idol season seven winner David Cook’s sophomore effort, This Loud Morning, which debuts at #7.

Columbia’s Jackie Evancho (#8), Shady/Interscope’s Bad Meets Evil (#9) and Lady Gaga (#10) complete the sales leaders.

Other Top 50 newcomers include Interscope’s Scotty McCreery (a Walmart exclusive at #11), Warner Bros.Taking Back Sunday (#14), Interscope’s Limp Bizkit (#15), Concord’s Rave On Buddy Holly tribute (#16), Warner Bros. rapper Curren$y (#20), Acony’s Gillian Welch (#22), Interscope Idol runner-up Lauren Alaina’s Walmart exclusive (#23), Universal Music Latino’s Luis Fonsi (#42), Eighteenth Street’s Thievery Corporation (#47) and Dolly/WB’s Dolly Parton (#48).

Warner Bros. Nashville’s Blake Shelton best-of (#18) and A&M/Octone’s Maroon 5 (#27) both re-enter, thanks to exposure from the finale of NBC’s hit The Voice, as does Atlantic’s Death Cab for Cutie (#50).

Led by Aldean, the week’s top double-digit gainers are Jive/JLG’s Chris Brown (#44-35, +21%), Universal Republic Nashville’s The Band Perry (#40-34, +18%), Walt Disney’s Lemonade Mouth soundtrack (#45-40, +12%) and Atlantic’s Zac Brown Band (#28, +11%).

Hitting retail in a very slow week are Zone 4/Interscope’s Lloyd and Metal Blade’s Unearth.
