Kelly Clarkson logs second week at No. 1 on Billboard 200
"Twilight" leaps up chart, Gorilla Zoe scores highest debut
Kelly Clarkson extends her reign at the top of the charts another week as only one new release cracks this week's Billboard 200. Clarkson's "All I Ever Wanted" drops 65% in sales for a tally of around 90,000, but that's enough to hold off former charttoppers U2, who climb from 3-2 with sales of 76,300.
Clarkson's two-week tally is 345,000 copies. The album's second single, "I Do Not Hook Up," goes to radio on April 13. First single, "My Life Would Suck Without You," soared to No. 1.
Want further proof that a DVD release boosts soundtrack sales? The soundtrack to "Twilight" leaps higher than Rob Pattinson through the trees as it receives a boost both from a new, deluxe version with five new tracks and the March 21 release of the film on DVD. It soars 14-3.
Lady GaGa continues her slow, steady dance toward No. 1-who knows if she'll make it. "The Fame" moves one step closer this week as she goes from 6-5. Her highest mark so far was No. 4 two weeks ago.
Other noteworthy debuts include Twixtid's "W.I.C.K.E.D.," which comes in at No. 11 and The Decemberists prog-opera "Hazards of Love" comes in at No. 14, based solely on digital sales and limited vinyl sales (the physical CD came out Tuesday; the digital and vinyl versions last Tuesday).
Next week, it's possible The Decemberists will climb higher, but we're betting that Miley Cyrus comes in at No. 1 with the soundtrack to "Hannah Montana: The Movie." Also likely to debut in the top 10 are new sets from Martina McBride, Keri Hilson and possibly, Mastadon.
