, will hold on to the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 next week despite losing 70 percent of its first-week mojo. According to figures provided by Nielsen SoundScan, Mayer's fifth solo disc sold an additional 65,000 copies, giving him a two-week total of more than 285,000.

Russian piano pounder Regina Spektor will land at #3 with her sixth effort, What We Saw From The Cheap Seats, which sold nearly 42,000 copies, while buzz band Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros came in a bit behind at #5 with Here (35,000). The other debut in the top 10 was from Icelandic mood rockers Sigur Rós, whose Valtari landed at #7 (26,000).

The rest of the top 10: Adele shows no sign of quitting, as 21 once again locked down the #2 spot on sales of 58,000 as the increasingly rare 10 million sales figure looms on the near horizon. Boy band One Direction got a slight boost, as Up All Night slid up one spot to #4 (41,000), while Carrie Underwood fell three spots with Blown Away (#6, 32,000), NOW 42 inched up a spot (#8, 26,000), country star Luke Bryan moved up six spots to get back into the top 10 with Tailgates & Tanlines (#9, 24,000) and Lionel Richie rounded things out with Tuskegee (#10, 22,000).
