Vampire Weekend Sink Their Teeth Into The Top Of The U.s. Album Charts
Cult act VAMPIRE WEEKEND have scored their first U.S. number one album after ending seven weeks of girl power at the top of the Billboard 200.
Susan Boyle and Ke$ha ruled the end-of-the-year and early 2010 charts, but the New York band have taken over, thanks to debut-week sales of 124,000.
Boyle's I Dreamed a Dream holds at number two, while Ke$ha's Animal falls to three, Lady GaGa's The Fame drops to four and The Element of Freedom by Alicia Keys rounds out the new top five.
Lady GaGa enjoys double success in the top 10 - her Fame Monster album jumps up from 10 to six.
