NEW YORK (Top 40 Charts) - Faith Hill
ends Elvis Presley's three-week reign at the top of The US Albums this week as her fifth album, Cry, debuts at No. 1 with 472,253 in sales.
The country singer knocked Elvis Presley from the top spot on the album chart, where he's been the past three weeks. "Elvis 30 No. 1 Hits'' has gone platinum, selling more than 1.1 million copies. Debuting at No. 2 was the latest album from LL Cool J, "10,'' which sold about 154,000 copies. Bon Jovi's "Bounce,'' the No. 2 album last week, bounced down to No. 13. The New Jersey-based rock group has sold about 222,000 copies in two weeks. And Tracy Chapman's new album, "Let It Rain,'' debuted at No. 25, having sold about 39,000 copies in its first week.
Knocking Presley's 30 #1 Hits down one more notch to No. 3 is LL Cool J's 10, which bows at No. 2. Two other acts debut in this week's top 10: Gerald Levert's The G Spot takes the No. 9 spot and Dave Hollister's Things in the Game Done Changed comes in at No. 10.
The rest of the top 10 remains relatively stable: Rolling Stones (No. 4), Avril Lavigne (No. 5), Dixie Chicks (No. 6), Eminem (No. 7), and Nelly (No. 8).
