Lionel Richie Vaults Ahead Of Adele To Land His First # 1 Album In 25 Years On Billboard 200!

An icon rules the Billboard 200 this week y’all! After 25 years since he last hit # 1 with ‘Dancing On The Ceiling‘ in 1986, Lionel Richie vaults past Adele’s ‘21‘ to top the Billboard 200 Albums Chart with his new album ‘Tuskegee‘, a country-fied collection of his hits remade with a little help from some very special guests including Shania Twain, Blake Shelton and Pixie Lott. Fueled by his special appearance on CBS, ‘ACM Presents : Lionel Richie And Friends In Concert‘, the album moved 129,000 copies this week, moving 3 spots up to # 1 from last week’s # 4, following its # 2 début behind Madonna’s ‘MDNA‘ 2 weeks ago.

Adele’s ‘21‘, which was poised to top the Billboard 200 earlier this week, stays put at # 2 for another week with 92,000 copies sold, taking her total sales of ‘21‘ to a massive 8,735,330 copies in the US alone, and over 21 million copies worldwide!

Last week’s # 1 album, Nicki Minaj’s ‘Pink Friday : Roman Reloaded‘ slips 2 spots to # 3 this week with 81,000 copies sold in the US.

R’n’B veteran Monica debuts at # 4 with her 5th consecutive top 10 album ‘New Life‘, moving 69,000 copies. Monica topped the Billboard 200 back in 2003 with the classic ‘After The Storm‘, and came as close to # 2 with 2010′s ‘Still Standing‘.

Another icon debuts within the top 10 this week, as veteran Rocker Bonnie Raitt roars in at# 6 with her new album ‘Slipstream‘, her first top 10 album since 1994′s ‘Longing In Their Hearts‘ which topped the Billboard 200.

The Billboard Top 10 Albums this week are :

1. Tuskegee – Lionel Richie

2. 21 – Adele

3. Pink Friday : Roman Reloaded – Nicki Minaj

4. New Life – Monica

5. Up All Night – One Direction

6. Slipstream – Bonnie Raitt

7. Making Mirrors – Gotye

8. Boys And Girls – Alabama Shakes

9. Changed – Rascal Flatts

10. All American – Hoodie Allen
