Hey, you know who’s kind of popular right now? Taylor Swift!

The country superstar’s Fearless spent an astounding 11th week at number one on the Billboard 200 album charts. The album sold another 73,000 copies, Billboard reports.

The Jonas Brothers, who were handicapped to take the top spot with their 3D Concert Experience soundtrack, will have to settle for (appropriately enough) #3. That’s okay, Jonas Brothers. America still loves you.

Elsewhere, country singer Jake Owens’ Easy Does It debuted in the not-so-unlucky #13 spot. Also new to the charts this week: Chris Isaak’s Mr. Lucky (#31), Somalian singer-songwriter K’Naan’s Troubadour (#32), and Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks: Live at the Hollywood Bowl (#33). But metal band Lamb of God have them all trumped — debuting at #2 with their latest album Wrath, a career-best.

This week’s top 10 albums:

Taylor Swift – Fearless
Lamb of God – Wrath
Jonas Brothers – 3D Concert Experience 
Slumdog Millionaire – Official Soundtrack
Nickelback – Dark Horse
Beyonce I Am… Sasha Fierce
Lady GaGa The Fame
The Fray – The Fray
Jamie Foxx – Intuition
Kanye West – 808s & Heartbreak
