Rihanna and Mary J. Blige storm the albums chart this week. The ladies had shoppers rushing to scoop up their latest releases, putting them in the top 5.

The Barbados pop star’s sixth album Talk That Talk enters at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 with 197,000 copies sold in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It marks her sixth top 10 debut and second biggest week since LOUD opened with 207,000 last November.

Seventeen years after releasing her breakthrough My Life, Mary J. Blige proves she’s still a force to be reckoned with. My Life II… The Journey Continues (Act I), the sequel to the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul’s 1994 album, lands at No. 5 with 156,000.

Michael Buble’s Christmas album slightly edges out Nickelback for the top spot (227,000), while Drake’s sophomore LP Take Care falls 1-4, selling 173,000 copies in its second week (down 73%).

Elsewhere, Yelawolf’s Shady Records debut Radioactive creeps in at No. 27 (41,000) and the soundtrack to Michael Jackson’s Cirque du Soleil show, Immortal, arrives at No. 24 (43,000).
