Lady Antebellum's latest offering, "Own the Night," now owns the top of the Canadian album charts.

The hot country act's second release, led by the hit single "Just a Kiss," soars straight to the top with 21,000 in sales, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

It marks the second straight No. 1 album for the Nashville trio - their last effort, 2009's breakthrough disc "Need You Now," spent three weeks there in March of 2010.

They also snag the top spot south of the border, selling 347,000 copies of "Own the Night" in the U.S., according to Billboard.com.

Back here, Adele's "21" is relegated to the No. 2 position, but still sells a healthy 20,000 copies, while David Guetta's "Nothing But the Beat" (6,700) and Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter IV" both slip one to No. 3 and No. 4, respectively.

Red Hot Chili Peppers's "I'm With You" goes down one level to No. 5, Maroon 5's "Hands All Over" levitates one to No. 6, and LMFAO's "Sorry for Party Rocking" sinks two notches to No. 7.

Dream Theatre's "Dramatic Turn of Events" opens the curtains at No. 8, Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" drops one to No. 8, and Bad Meets Evil's "Hell: The Sequel" holds on at No. 10.

In the U.S., Adele places second, followed by Lil Wayne in third, Brantley Gilbert's "Halfway to Heaven" in fourth, and Staind's self-titled album in fifth.
