Lupe Fiasco's Lasers beams at No. 1 on Billboard 200 albums chart

Posted on

Lupe Fiasco

Surprisingly, Lupe Fiasco’s new Lasers bumps Adele’s 21 out of the No. 1 spot this week’s on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Fiasco’s third album, one we love, isn’t exactly the artist’s favorite. The animosity he has towards it is due the toll the creative process and his Atlantic record label put him through. But it seems to have been worth it, as Lasers sold 204,000 records in its debut week–the highest first week total of Lupe’s career. 21 continues its strong sales, moving 133,000 units. While Glee‘s latest soundtrack comes in third with 90,000 sets purchased.

Check out the full top to after the jump.
