Justin Bieber tops U.S. album charts

Tween sensation's sophomore album sold 102,000 copies

Justin Bieber’s “My World 2.0” returns to the pinnacle of the U.S. album chart this week, brushing back a momentary challenge from Usher for the No. 1 slot.

The tween sensation’s sophomore album sold 102,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan data for the week ending April 11. His 2009 Island debut “My World” holds at No. 8 this week, adding another 30,000 to his tally; that collection has shifted 1.2 million to date.

Bieber’s latest was pushed out of the top position last week by Usher’s “Raymond V. Raymond.” The R&B star’s LaFace set slips to No. 2 this week in a 72% decline, moving 92,000.

Struggling EMI Music accounts for the other three titles in this week’s top five.

Guitarist Slash’s self-titled solo debut enters at No. 3 with a 60,000-unit bow. The Velvet Revolver and Guns N’ Roses axeman’s set on the Dik Hayd imprint is distributed by EMI Label Services.

In spite of a 34% drop, country powerhouse Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now’ (Capitol Nashville) holds on at No. 4 with sales of 57,000, taking album’s cume sales over 1.7 million. EMI-distributed “Now 33” drops two rungs to No. 5; the hits compilation lost 57% and sold 53,000.

Week’s top 10 holdovers include Monica’s “Still Standing” (No. 6, 38,000, down 53%), Lady Gaga’s “The Fame” (No. 7, 32,000, down 35%) and Eyrkah Badu’s “New Amerykah Part Two” (No. 9, 30,000, down 73%).

Week’s only other top 10 arrival is Madonna’s “Sticky & Sweet Tour.” Live collection, diva’s Warner Bros. swan song, tracked a meager 28,000 in its first stanza.

New titles by MGMT, Coheed & Cambria and Jeff Beck are poised for chart entry next week.
