Lupe Fiasco leads 5 big debuts on the Charts

Rapper Lupe Fiasco ended Adele’s run on top of the Billboard Albums Chart this week as his new release, Lasers, became his first # 1 selling 204,000 copies. Adele’s 21 slipped to the runner up position and continues to be the top selling release of 2011. Four more debuts came in line next with the latest Glee album, plus Avril Lavigne’s fourth top ten record (which unfortunatley was, by far, her worst seller), R.E.M.’s tenth top ten album and the latest from country crooner and former Dancing With the Stars contender Sara Evans. Take a look at the new top ten below and for more head to Billboard here.
