Pop punk band Paramore roars to the top for the first time in their career this week after a #2 debut for their last album. That means Brad Paisley has to settle for his fourth #2 hit album without a chart topper. Eric Church's #5 opening makes it a big week for country music with three albums among the top 5.

It is a third week with the pop radio crown for Bruno Mars' "When I Was Your Man." However, Pitbull and Christina Aguilera surge into the top 3 with a four notch jump for "Feel This Moment." It looks the potential for a big radio hit for Justin Timberlake as "Mirrors" makes a big nine notch leap to #14 this week.
