Taylor Swift's sophomore studio LP 'Fearless' debuts at number 1 on Billboard Hot 200 Albums chart, beating down another newcomer, David Archuleta's self-titled debut album.
Taylor Swift's "Fearless" makes an impressive entry on Billboard Hot 200 Albums chart by landing on the top spot. Her second major studio album sells more than 592,000 copies across U.S. since dropped last week on November 11 via Big Machine Records.
At number 2, David Archuleta claims the spot with his self-titled debut album, which was released on the same day Taylor's "Fearless" made its way out. Led by single "Crush" which peaked at number 2 on Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart, his effort has garnered 183,000 copies in its first-week sales.
Next is compilation album "Now That's What I Call Music!" series lingering at number three with 172,000 selling point. Following the record featuring hit singles from Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Amy Winehouse, and Mariah Carey among others is T-Pain's "Thr33 Ringz" that has pulled 167,500 copies.
Furthermore, at number five is last week's chart-topper "Twilight" soundtrack album. The theme song LP, which features Paramore's "Decode" and "I Caught Myself", can only add 107,000 copies after having sold about 164,700 last week.
