Staying at No. 3, Eminem's "MMLP2" sells 55,000 copies. Katy Perry's "Prism" ascends from No. 5 to No. 4 with 51,000 and Lorde's "Pure Heroine" rises from No. 7 to No. 5 with 46,000.

Also returning to the top 10, OneRepublic's "Native" takes the eighth spot with 35,000 and the "Now 48" album is placed ninth after selling 34,000.
