Queen Bey continues her reign atop the Billboard charts this week, holding on to No. 1 with an additional 115,000 copies sold of her new album 4. Beyoncé recently debuted a sexy new video for the album's second single "Best Thing I Never Had."

Debuting on the charts this week is R&B lothario Lloyd, who reaches No. 10 with his new effort, King of Hearts. The album, his first in three years, sold 26,000 copies and is his third Top 10 debut.

Elsewhere in the Top 10, the big selling British import Adele retains the No. 2 position with 79,000 additional units of her blockbuster album 21. Jill Scott's The Light of the Sun falls two spots from 5 to 7 with 32,000 sold; and Big Sean endures a steeper decline in sales (69 percent), dropping from spot 3 to 9 with 27,000 copies moved of his debut Finally Famous.

Fairing much better than Sean were two other Detroit natives, Eminem and Royce Da 5'9", who managed to climb four spots with their Bad Meets Evil EP Hell: The Sequel. The record moved 35,000 more units and jumped from No. 9 to No. 5.
