Move over Nicki Minaj, there's an all too familiar face at the top of the Canadian album charts once again.

Adele's "21" climbed up to No. 1 on sales of 10,000, sending Minaj's latest disc "Pink Friday...Roman Reloaded," the top dog last week, tumbling down to No. 4.

Minaj's sales plummeted nearly 60% down to 6,500, according to data compiled by Nielsen SoundScan.

In between, Brit heartthrobs One Direction were locked in at No. 2 with "Up All Night" (9,900), and Lionel Richie's country themed "Tuskegee" slid up two positions to No. 3.

Of Monsters and Men's "My Head is an Animal" came up two to No. 5, the soundtrack to the popular Quebec talent show "Star Academie" went the other way, sinking two to No. 6, and Canadian guitar hero Johnny Reid's "Fire it Up" shot up from No. 11 to No. 7.

Closing out the top 10 was Gotye's "Making Mirrors" at No. 8, Lisa LeBlanc's "Lisa LeBlanc" at No. 9, and Madonna's "MDNA" at No. 10.

In the U.S., Lionel Richie placed first, followed by Adele in second, Nicki Minaj in third, Monica's "New Life" in fourth, and One Direction in fifth.
