The holiday retail market catapulted several other albums ahead of West's in the top 10. Taylor Swift's Speak Now went from Number 3 to Number 2, 10-year-old opera singer Jackie Evancho's Christmas LP debuted at Number 3, and two Glee albums — a Christmas LP and volume 4 of the soundtrack series — debuted at Number 4 and Number 5, respectively.
The Black Eyed Peas The Beginning debuted at a surprisingly soft Number 6, and Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday, which came in at Number 2 last week, slipped to Number 8.
