Who's Number One: After a massive opening week for Lady Gaga's Born This Way -- a 1.1 million, record-breaking, monster-stunning debut -- Gaga has become reacquainted with reality (well, considering she just wore a spiked thong, probably not, but her label has). BTW sold 174,000 copies its second week in stores according to Nielsen SoundScan, which is still more than any other album on Billboard's Top 200, but it's 84 percent less than last week's tally -- if you need a visual, picture her album sales falling off the Edge of Glory set she constructed for the Idol finale. It's only 53,000 copies more than Adele's unstoppable 21 in its third month on sale, and Adele is holding on to her Number One on the Digital Songs chart, too. Lady Gaga better uncover, convert, or concoct some more little monsters or she's in danger of dropping out of first place next week.
Rock Music!: Death Cab for Cutie's excellent Codes and Keys debuted at Number Three with 102,000! Eddie Vedder's album of ukulele songs -- we repeat, ukulele songs -- came in fourth with 71K! And My Morning Jacket's Circuital moved 55,000 copies in Number Five! Together, all these rockers managed to sell more copies than Born This Way!
So That Means...: One more debut cracked the Top 10 -- Flogging Molly's Number Nine Speed of Darkness with 25,000. Brad Paisley's This Is Country Music dipped to Number Six (53,000), Now's 38th comp came in seventh (39,000), Jason Aldean's My Kinda Party moved up to Eight (33,000), and the sixth volume of music from Glee's second season fell to 10 (25,000).
Have Lil Wayne Fans Gone Mad? We need to know, because his super lame slow-jam "How to Love" jumped 309 percent to 151,000 copies sold in Number Five on the Digital Songs chart.
