Katy Perry lands her first No. 1 on Billboard's European Albums, debuting at the top with "Teenage Dream" (Capitol/EMI). The new leader on European Hot 100 Singles is "We Speak No Americano" (Sweat It Out/All Around The World/UMTV/Universal) by Yolanda Be Cool & Dcup.
Perry's first album "One of the Boys" peaked at No. 10 in its second week on the pan-European chart in 2008, but its successor makes a much bolder start that includes No. 1 debuts in the United Kingdom and Ireland, No. 4 in Spain and Switzerland, No. 5 in Germany and No. 11 in Switzerland, with a 14-3 jump in France. First-week U.K. sales of 54,000 compare to 18,000 for "Boys." The title track from "Teenage Dream" opens at No. 10 on Hot 100 Singles, including a No. 2 U.K. start on 86,000 sales.
Iron Maiden's "The Final Frontier" (EMI) thus falls to No. 2 after two weeks at the European summit. It holds at No. 1 in Italy but falls 1-2 in Spain and Sweden, 2-9 in Germany, 2-5 in Switzerland, 3-4 in Poland, 3-6 in Portugal and 3-18 in the United Kingdom.
