^#1 Album #1 Single^
Alright, I can handle this. Carrie Underwood notches her second straight #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart with Play On following first-week sales of 318,000 copies, giving her the best sales week of the year for a female! Unfortunately, the good album news ends there because Amerie debuts at #46 with In Love & War & Ryan Leslie's Transition enters at #50. On the Hot 100 singles chart this week, Owl City's "Fireflies" returns to the top, while Rihanna earns her 12th top 10 hit as "Russian Roulette" rockets 75-9 after selling 132,000 digital downloads out of the gate. "Empire State Of Mind," or the song that doesn't stop, from Alicia Keys & Jay-Z lands at #2 with the Airplay Gainer status.
