This is the sixth week that Swift has been number one (despite a 20 percent sales decrease). If she hadn’t been on SNL, it probably would have dropped more. Swift’s album “Fearless” is the first albums to top the charts for six weeks since 50 Cent’s “The Massacre” in 2005.

At 6.25 million units, sales are down 26.5% compared to the same total last week and off by 13.8% compared to the same week last year.

Wow, that’s REALLY bad, especially considering how much sales dropped last week from the holiday week.
