Swift Beats Plant & Krauss To The Top Of The U.s. Charts

TAYLOR SWIFT's love story with the top of the U.S. album charts is still going strong after the country star held off a challenge from ROBERT PLANT and ALISON KRAUSS to return to number one.
A Valentine's Day sales boost gave Swift's Fearless release a ninth non-consecutive week at the top of the Billboard charts.
Only Santana's album Supernatural has spent more time at the top of the in the past decade.
Fearless sold 92,000 copies to squeak past Plant and Krauss' Grammy Award-winning Raising Sand, which shot up from 69 to two on the new countdown.
That album had fallen out of the top 200 until the duo claimed five golds at the Grammys on 8 February (09). It debuted at number two on the U.S. charts in late 2007, and has gone one to sell over 1.2 million copies.
Coldplay also got a boost from their wins and performance at the Grammys - the British group's Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends jumps back up the charts from 31 to eight.
Back to the top five, and India.Arie's Testimony: Vol. 2 - Love & Politics claims the week's highest debut at three, last week's chart-toppers the Fray's self-titled release slips to four and Lily Allen's It's Not Me, It's You enters the countdown at five.
