Comments

Lupe Fiasco leads this week's chart with his first #1 album and best sales week yet. He is followed by Glee continuing its winning streak. This is the sixth Glee collection to land inside the top 3 of the album chart. Avril Lavigne manages only a #4 opening for Goodbye Lullaby which leaves her in danger of having this fourth studio set be her first that doesn't reach the top 2 of the album chart.
