It's the first new no.1 of the year, Vampire Weekend's 'Contra'. The album jumps atop with first week sales of 206.000 copies and ends the seven week reign of Susan Boyle's 'I Dreamed A Dream'. Vampire Weekend's ingenious self-titled debut album entered with 37.000 sales at no.37 in the week 7, 2008 and sold almost a million copies to date. Susan Boyle falls at no.3 this week and loses 27% to 165.000 units. Sandwiched between is Lady GaGa's 'The Fame (Monster), which holds the no.2 for another week (down 10% to 177.000). No change also at no.4, Alicia Keys' 'The Element Of Freedom' stands there after a 12% decline to 108.000. Rounds out the top five is another new-entry, Kat-Tun's side project Lands with 'Olympos' (103.000). Also new on the tally is another effort from Japan, Hilcrhyme's 'Recital' at no.8 (63.000). Biggest climber of the week is Miley Cyrus' 'The Time Of Our Lives', which jumps 11 spots to no.14 and gets a 46% sales gain to 51.000. As expected Susan Boyle ascended the throne of the year-end chart at the last minute, 'I Dreamed A Dream' sold a total of 6.014.000 copies until the week 01, 2010. Lady GaGa's 'The Fame (Monster)' follows close behind with 5.894.000 copies and no.3 holds the Black Eyed Peas' 'The E.N.D.' with sales of 4.611.000 copies.

'Imma Be', Black Eyed Peas' fourth lift-off from the million-seller 'The E.N.D.' bows at no.27 (86.000) and leads three debuts on the list, following by OneRepublic's 'All The Right Moves' at no.33 (75.000) and Kris Allen's 'Live Like We're Dying' at no.35 (73.000). Lady GaGa's monster smash 'Poker Face' leads just before Black Eyed Peas' 'I Gotta Feeling' on the year-end chart. Both tracks reached more than 9 million points and that's far away from all other big hits last year. At no.3 on that list there's another Black Eyed Peas' bestseller; the innovative 'Boom Boom Pow' with nearly 7 million points. However, Lady GaGa is five times on the year-end list: next to 'Poker Face' placed also 'Just Dance' at no.5, 'Paparazzi' at no.12, 'Bad Romance' at no.25 and 'LoveGame' at no.38.
