For a fourth non-consecutive week, that other Lady hanging out in the Top 10 of Billboard‘s Top 200 Albums chart—Lady Antebellum—returns to the #1 position, thereby bumping Ludacris’ Battle Of The Sexes down to #3. It’s a rather ho-hum week in the upper echelon of the album tally, with only two new entries. See how everything panned out after the jump.
Marvin Sapp’s Here I Am enters the Top 200 at #2, and sets a record for the highest-charting gospel album in the 54-year history of the chart, Billboard notes. Here I Am sold 76,000 copies in its first week on sale.
The other debut within the Top 10 comes from the two-disc rock compilation The Edge, which features “classics” like Evanescence’s “Bring Me To Life,” Korn’s “Freak On A Leash” and Jet’s “Are You Gonna Be My Girl.”
Damn—are those jams considered retro now? Someone hand us a cane.
