Once more defying the pundits, Taylor Swift stays on top of the album chart for the 11th week as Fearless sells another 73,000 copies in the U.S. She has a shot next week of achieving something no one has accomplished since 1999-2000: a dozen weeks at number one. Santana was the last band to do that.
In the number two slot was Wrath from Lamb of God, selling 68,000 copies. That's better than the heavy metal artist's previous high of number eight with their album Sacrament in 2006.
The Jonas Brothers continue their puzzling underperformance as 3D Concert Experience hits the charts at number three, not number one, selling just 50,000 records. Improbably, the soundtrack for Slumdog Millionaire is right behind them at number four displacing Nickelback's Dark Horse which drops from four to five.
