iTunes Chart Watch

Scotty McCreery - I Love You This Big iTunesAs predicted last week, Lady GaGa took over the iTunes chart watch but not with the immediate dominance I expected. Born This Way is the #1 album but Adele holds onto the #1 single with "Rolling In The Deep" for one more week. American Idol winner Scotty McCreery was #1 by the end of the week but didn't quite take the weekly title, debuting at number three. Runner-up Lauren Alaina is in at #8.

On the albums front, Adele is #2 followed by Brad Paisley. Alaina and McCreery both placed their American Idol digital albums in the Top 10 as they no doubt prepare to issue their first official records.
