A week after she unseated Eminem from the #1 position on Billboard‘s Top 200 Albums chart, upcoming SNL performer Katy Perry suffers a 54% drop in sales with Teenage Dream and gets bumped down by Disturbed’s Asylum. See what all went down this week with the Top 10 of the main album roundup after the jump.
Billboard notes that Asylum is Chicago act Disturbed’s fourth consecutive #1 album, making them only the third rock band in the history of the Top 200 chart to achieve that feat. But Katy Perry isn’t alone—Fantasia, who debuted at #2 last week with Back To Me, also takes a tumble (to #5).
Four other new LPs crack the Top 10 in the form of the 35th Now compilation (#2), Lyfe Jennings’ I Still Believe (#6), the Goo Goo Dolls’ Something For The Rest Of Us (#7) and Heart’s 13th studio album Red Velvet Car (#10).
Hard to believe Seattle sister act Heart last visited the Top 10 in 1990 with Brigade (#3), an LP that produced this classic light rock jam:
