Eminem Is No. 1 Again

 Eminem accepts an award onstage during The 53rd Annual GRAMMY Awards held at Staples Center on February 13, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

Not that really anyone bought records last week, but yes: 120,000 copies of Marshall Mathers LP 2 was enough to put Eminem back at No. 1. Meanwhile, Lady Gaga sold 46,000 copies of ARTPOP, which is a drop of 82 percent. (To be fair to Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake and Kanye both experienced similar second-week drop-offs this year. But yeah, not a great statistic.) In happier news: Lorde is still No. 1 on the "Hot 100." "Royals" > "The Monster," forever.
