Her Teenage Dream set sold 192,000 copies in its debut frame. It’s still her best ever sales week, though. Her last album, 2008’s One of the Boys of “I Kissed a Girl” fame, debuted and peaked at No. 9 with 47,000 albums sold.

American Idol alum Fantasia debuts at No. 2 with Back To Me, selling 117,000 copies. Eminem’s Recovery falls two spots to No. 3, moving 98,000 units. And Usher’s companion to this year’s Raymond V Raymond, Versus, premieres at No. 4 with 46,000 copies sold.

Little Big Town’s The Reason Why debuts at No. 5 with 42,000 albums sold. While selling 30,000 copies, Kem’s Intimacy drops from last week’s No. 2 to No. 6. Justin Bieber’s My World 2.0 lifts one place to No. 7, selling 29,000 units.

Country group Randy Rogers Band’s Burning the Day enters at No. 8, boasting 29,000 albums sold. Ray LaMontagne’s God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise drops six spots to No. 9, selling 28,000 copies. Rounding out the top 10 is the Devil Wears Prada’s five-song concept EP, Zombie, at No. 10 with 25,000 copies sold.
