    Last week, Billboard predicted that Lupe Fiasco's Lasers would debut at #1 and they were right. The record landed in the top slot, selling 204,000 copies after a week on retail shelves.

    This accolade is Fiasco's first No. 1 and is best sales week to date. His second effort, The Cool, debuted at No. 15 with 143,000 in 2007.

    Congrats to Lupe Fiasco on his #1 and his upward growth. The album was delayed and fraught with problems, but Fiasco is "winning," to borrow a phrase from Chucky Sheen.

    Did you get Laser'ed this week?
