l.e.i. Sundresses by Taylor Swift
The countdown is on to whether her ex Joe Jonas and his sibling act can topple the Taylor Swift juggernaut.
The country songbird, who's the closest thing the music industry has to a stimulus plan, fended off Gap Band frontman Charlie Wilson to notch her 10th week at No. 1, as Fearless sold 62,000, per Nielsen SoundScan.
This might be the end of her run, however, as Swift not only faces the Jonas Brothers' concert movie soundtrack but also U2's No Line on the Horizon and Kelly Clarkson's All I Ever Wanted over the next three weeks.
Wilson did finish a respectable No. 2 for the week, selling 58,000 of Uncle Charlie. He previously peaked at No. 10 as a solo artist with 2005's Charlie, Last Name Wilson.
Lady GaGa's The Fame, which debuted in stores last summer, finally cracked the Top 10, moving 32,000 at No. 10. The album features the Grammy-nominated chart-topper "Just Dance" and the red-hot new single "Poker Face," both of which are currently Top 10 on the Hot 100.
Meanwhile, Morrissey's ninth solo album, Years of Refusal, sold 31,000 discs at No. 11. Other newcomers included M. Ward (a.k.a. the "Him" opposite Zooey Deschanel in She & Him) at No. 31 with Hold Time, the Annie Lennox Collection at No. 34 and Thursday's Common Existence at No. 56.
Oscar domination gave an early bounce to the Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack, which climbed 26 spots to No. 22. Digital downloads of the album, which more than doubled between weeks, is largely responsible for the surge.
Total sales are down 13 percent compared to last week but down just 7 percent compared to the same week in '08.
