(Photo: Splash News Online) Taylor Swift has just logged her 5th week on top of the Billboard record charts, as her album Fearless sells another 90,000 copies.

While that's good news for Swift, it's also bad news for her and the industry: it's the first time in nearly a year that a number one recording has sold under 100,000 copies. The previous record holder was Alicia Keys As I Am, which moved a modest 61,000 copies.

For the second week in a row, Beyonce's I Am...Sasha Fierce stays at number two selling 77,000 copies, while Kanye West jumps to number three with 71,000 copies of 808s and Heartbreak having sold.

The soundtrack to Twilight is number four.
