Lady Antebellum Stays at No. 1 on Hot 200, Blocking Lil Wayne


Next week, Dave Haywood, Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott are predicted to fall from the first position and give the crown to Sade.

Lady Antebellum remain the champion of this week's Billboard Hot 200. The band top Lil Wayne and Nick Jonas & The Administration, forcing those contenders to make their debut at No. 2 and 3 respectively on the chart.

The country music trio hold the position with their latest studio installment "Need You Now" which adds another 209,000 copies, down 57% from its opening number. They reportedly get sale boost from their performance at the recent Grammys which saw them singing the album's title track.

Weezy, who also served as one of the 2010 Grammys performers, manages to sell 176,000 copies of his new album "Rebirth" across the United Stated. The rock-themed effort which suffered from several pushbacks is unable to come near his previous release "Tha Carter III" which opened 423,000 units in June 2008.

As for Nick Jonas, this youngest member of the Jonas Brothers scores 82,000 with "Who I Am", his debut album with The Administration. Though the band didn't sing at the Grammys, their frontman Nick appeared at the event along with his brothers Joe Jonas and Kevin Jonas to introduce Lady Antebellum's live act.

Aside from Lil Wayne and Nick Jonas & The Administration, another new entry cracking the Top 10 of the U.S. albums chart is Rob Zombie. His "Hellbilly Deluxe 2" album secures the No. 8 position with 49,000. Four years ago, he debuted at No. 5 with "Educated Horses" which sold 108,000 in its first week of release.

Next week, Sade is set to take the top spot from Lady Antebellum. With her comeback album "Soldier of Love", she is predicted to make a grand return with 375,000 to 400,000 by week's end on February 14.
