Coming in at No. 2 is Lady Antebellum's Need You Now, which sold 3.1 million units.

Taylor Swift's third album, Speak Now, came in at No. 3 with 2.96 million in sales. Justin Bieber's My World 2.0 and Susan Boyle's The Gift came in fourth and fifth spots respectively.

Lady Gaga's The Fame was named no. 6 with 1.6 million in sales, followed by Sade's Soldier of Love with 1.3 million. Drake's Thank Me Later moved 1.27; Usher's Raymond V Raymond, 1.18 and Ke$ha's Animal, 1.14.
