John Mayer's "Born and Raised" stays atop the Billboard 200 two weeks after it was released in the United States. The fifth studio installment of the Connecticut-born rocker sells another 65,000 copies, making it the smallest number of units for a number one album since Nicki Minaj's "Pink Friday" topped the chart with 45,000 in February 2011.

The victory also marks the first time Mayer has his album staying at the top of the chart for more than one week. The "Shadow Days" hitmaker's other efforts which peaked at No. 1 were "Heavier Things" (2003) and "Battle Studies" (2009).

Making the highest debut this week is Regina Spektor's "What We Saw From the Cheap Seats", which bows at No. 3 with 42,000 copies. Other new entries making it into the top 10 are Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros' "Here", which debuts at No. 5 (35,000), and Sigur Ros' "Valtari", which places seventh (26,000).

Adele's "21" still secures the second place by selling 58,000 copies (up 4%). One Direction's "Up All Night" rises from No. 5 to No. 4 with 41,000 copies (up 12%), while Carrie Underwood's "Blown Away" falls from No. 3 to No. 6 with additional 32,000 copies.

Rounding up the top ten are "Now 42" Compilation at No. 8 (31,000), Luke Bryan's "Tailgates & Tanlines" at No. 9 (24,000), and Lionel Richie's "Tuskegee" at No. 10 (22,000).
