NEW YORK (Top40 Charts) - Eminem
keeps his place at No. 1 on US Albums chart for the second chart week in a row, raking in a total of 1,321,799 in sales since his unusual release date of Sunday (May 26).
The rapper's third album, The Eminem Show, debuted at No. 1 on 284,534 in sales last week after only being out for one official counting day (allstar, May 29). Had the 1.3 million counted for the first chart week, it would've been the highest first-week sales for the year.
Sean "P. Diddy" Combs's P. Diddy & Bad Boy Records Present...We Invented The Remix holds strong at Number Two this week, while Ashanti's self-titled debut climbs from Number Five to Number Three.
Cam'ron's Come Home With Me is at Number Four, followed by Celine Dion's A New Day Has Come at Number Five. Salsa/pop superstar Marc Anthony's Mended is at Number Six, and Sheryl Crow's C'mon C'mon is at Number Seven.
Rounding out the top 10 is 34-year-old out country crooner Kenny Chesney's No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems at Number Eight, Now That's What I Call Music! Volume 9 at Number Nine, and Musiq's Juslisen at Number 10.
The only other notable debut on the chart comes from the Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood soundtrack, featuring Bob Dylan, Ann Savoy, Jimmy Reed, Lauryn Hill, Macy Gray, Tony Bennett, and others, which debuts at No. 99.
