January 12, 2011

Taylor Swift
As record sales remained slow after the holiday shopping season, Taylor Swift's Speak Now once again topped the sales chart for the sixth week in a row. It maintained the #1 position by selling only 52,000 copies, which is a 32 percent decline from the previous week. Speak Now has sold over 3 million copies to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The rest of the Top 10 was filled out by the usual suspects. Nicki Minaj is at #2 with Pink Friday, selling 38,600, and Bruno Mars is at #3 with Doo-Wops and Hooligans, selling another 38,100 copies. The Tron Legacy soundtrack shifted 34,000 units for the #4 spot, and Eminem's Recovery was at #5 with 33,400. Recovery was the top selling album of 2010 and has now sold almost 3.5 million copies.

In the back half of the Top 10, Rihanna's Loud holds down the #6 spot with 33,300 sold, and Kanye West is at #7 with My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, selling 33,200. Mumford & Sons' Sigh No More is #8 with 31,000, Jason Aldean's My Kinda Party is #9 with 29,000, and the Country Strong movie soundtrack is #10 with 28,400.
