Bruce Springsteen, Cee-Lo, Rihanna top sellers

Kid Cudi's Man On The Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager might have dominated last week's charts, but this week, it's disappeared from the top ten at Albums on the Hill and Twist & Shout and moved down to the number four at Independent Records.

Bruce Springsteen's The Promise, meanwhile, released last week on Columbia, claimed the top spot at Twist & Shout and came in second at Albums on the Hill. Rihanna's latest, Loud, topped sales at Independent Records, as did Cee-Lo's The Lady Killer at Albums on the Hill, while Antony & the Johnson's latest, Swanlights, checked in at number one at Wax Trax.
