For the final tracked week of 2010, Taylor Swift’s “Speak Now” comes out on top of the Billboard 200 album sales chart. That makes it five non-consecutive weeks for the country-pop crossover, as she moved 77,000 copies — down 72% compared to the week previous.

Eminem’s “Recovery” recovers, bounding up No. 7 to No. 2 with 63,000 (-54%) and Rihanna’s “Loud” climbs No. 10 to No. 3 (62,000, -44%). Nicki Minaj’s “Pink Friday” ascends No. 8 to No. 4 (61,000, -54%), Kanye West’s “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” rises No. 19 to No. 5, Daft Punk’s “TRON: Legacy” Soundtrack moves to its new peak No. 27 to No. 6 (54,000, -22%) and Bruno Mars’ “Doo-Wops & Hooligans”  flies No. 20 to No. 7 (45,000, -46%).

Mumford & Sons also achieve a new peak with “Sigh No More,” which climbsNo. 34 to No. 8, probably with a little help from that Grammy Nomination and year’s worth of word of mouth.

Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” is up No. 12 to No. 9 (38,000, -62% and Keyshia Cole’s “Caling All Hearts” moves No. 11 to No. 10.

A lot of albums rebounded in to the top tier this week due to Christmas efforts like those from Susan Boyle, “Glee” and Jackie Evancho dropping off.
