Taylor Swift’s Speak Now gets knocked down to #2 after a two-week run at the top of the chart. After that, Kid Cudi’s sophomore set Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager enters at #3 on sales of 169,000, followed by the latest NOW compilation at #4 (89,000), Bon Jovi’s Greatest Hits at #5 (88,0000), Reba McEntire’s All The Women That I Am at #7 (64,000) and Cee Lo Green’s The Lady Killer at #8 (41,000).
Elsewhere, the a cappella rendition of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” that new Glee cast member Darren Criss performed on last week’s “Never Been Kiss” episode appears to have struck a chord with viewers. Billboard notes that the song sold 214,000 downloads—easily the best of the week, and the highest one-week sales figure yet for a Glee single.
Take that, Lea Michele. And expect Criss to be getting bumped up the list of the show’s solo contenders.
