Lupe Fiasco's Lasers Blasts To Top Of Billboard 200

Avril Lavigne's long-awaited Goodbye Lullaby debuts at #4.

Lasers - Lupe FiascoSometimes the hardest, bumpiest rides are the ones that get you to the sweetest destination. That's the lesson Chicago MC Lupe Fiasco is basking in this week as he celebrates the #1 debut of his third album, Lasers.

That's more than enough to end the two-week #1 reign of British soul singer Adele, whose 21 drops a spot to #2 as sales dipped to 133,000, giving her an impressive three-week total of more than 653,000.
