Rihanna and Regina Spektor Break into the Top Ten of the Billboard Charts

It was a rather quiet week on the Billboard charts for the past frame as Gotye and John Mayer maintained their holds on the top of the Hot 100 and Billboard 200. However, there were a few people breaking into those upper tiers… As Mayer held for a second week with Born & Raised on the albums charts, Regina Spektor grabbed her best debut ever at # 3 with What We Saw from the Cheap Seats. Also debuting in the top ten for the first time were Sigur Ros and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Heros. For more on this chart, head to Billboard here and check out the new top ten below.

Top Ten Albums on the Billboard 200:
1. Born & Raised- John Mayer (last week~ 1)
2. 21- Adele (lw~ 2)
3. What We Saw from the Cheap Seats- Regina Spektor (debut)
4. Up All Night- One Direction (lw~ 5)
5. Here- Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Heros (debut)

8. Now 42 Compilation- Various Artists (lw~ 9)
9. Tailgates and Tanlines- Luke Bryan (lw~ 15)
10. Tuskegee- Lionel Richie (lw~ 6)

Over on the Hot 100 Singles chart, Gotye’s “Somebody that I Used to Know” continues its run at the top for an 8th week, the longest reign of 2012. I thought Carly Rae Jepsen would break his stranglehold of that spot this week, but I guess she’s just gonna have to wait one more week for her infectious hit “Call Me Maybe” to become her first chart-topper…. Further down the list, Rihanna makes waves with “Where Have You Been” hitting # 9 giving her a 22nd top ten hit. That’s darn impressive and when you consider she’s done that in the last 7 years, it’s incredible! … For more on Rihanna and the Hot 100, head to Billboard here and take a look at the new top ten below.
