Harlem rapper Jim Jones made his debut on the charts this week with his fifth solo album, Capo, landing at No. 20 after selling 21,000 units. The low output comes after Jones expressed disappointment in his label, E1 Entertainment, for the way the project was rolled out.

Wiz Khalifa's Rolling Papers fell three spots from last week, coming in at No. 5 after selling 59,000 units in its second week in stores. The album saw a hefty 71% drop in sales, bringing its total sales to 256,000.

Britain's soul siren Adele re-upped on her American invasion, taking back the No. 1 spot from Britney Spears, whose Femme Fatale dips to No. 2. Adele's 21 sold an impressive 88,000 copies in its seventh week on the charts, while Britney fell 73% to 75,000 in week two.

Meanwhile, Chris Brown stays in the top 10 for his third week in stores, moving an additional 51,000 copies of F.A.M.E. to come in at No. 6. Jennifer Hudson slips to the 11 spot, with I Remember Me moving another 31,000 copies off shelves.
