With no newcomers cracking the chart, Sade are saved from losing the No. 1 spot despite experiencing 62 percent decline in album sale.
Sade easily secure the first position on Billboard Hot 200. Though shifting only 190,000 copies (down 62%) in its second week, they sit at the No. 1 slot for two consecutive weeks because there aren't any heavy contenders from new releases this week.
While the Top 10 of the U.S. albums chart was filled with four new entries last week, no newcomers can crack the chart this week. The highest debut comes from Story of the Year's "The Constant" which is only able to reach No. 42 with 14,000 units.
This means that the rest of the spots on Hot 200's Top 10 were hold by those who have been in and out the chart for the past few months. Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" remains at No. 2 with another 144,000, bringing in a total of over 1 million copies after four weeks in sale.
The next spot sees Black Eyed Peas swapping places with Jaheim. BEP's "The E.N.D." successfully jumps five steps from No. 8, while Jaheim's "Another Round" takes the empty spot left by the Hip-Hop group.
Making a return after getting kicked out of the Top 10 this week is Alicia Keys who then makes tobyMac out of the list. Her latest studio installment "The Element of Freedom" sold around 39,000 units and the number is enough to give her the seventh position.
