The mighty have fallen...a lot! Sales of Madonna's MDNA album fell a record 87% last week when it dropped from #1 to #8. That's the largest second-week drop in chart history. As expected, Nicki Minaj's Roman Reloaded went straight in at #1 and Adele moved up from #3 to #2. Following appearances on SNL and Nickelodeon, UK boy-band One Direction moved back up to #5.
