For those of you who thought that things couldn't get any rosier for Carlos Santana...After conjuring up nine statuettes at last week's Grammy Awards, the guitar legend turned the gold rush into a sales rush, according to figures released by SoundScan on Wednesday. Santana saw the already impressive sales of his "Supernatural" LP more than double after his massive Grammy night, as the album sold more than 583,000 copies last week. The impressive total means that Santana will continue to claim the number one spot on the "Billboard" album chart next week, a position the guitar legend has essentially owned since last summer. While Carlos seemed to hoard all the trophies for himself on Grammy night (see "Santana Rolls On Grammy Night; TLC, Eminem, Aguilera Hit Gold"), others who played a part in the ceremony got a sales goose as well. Best New Artist Grammy winner Christina Aguilera jumps up to number three on
the chart, while performers Kid Rock, The Dixie Chicks, Backstreet Boys, Faith Hill, Marc Anthony, and Sting all posted significant sales bumps. It also seems that many viewers took Grammy host Rosie O'Donnell's advice and went out and bought Macy Gray's debut album, as the R&B songstress sees her "On How Life Is" finally crack the top ten (vaulting to number six).Of course, there's more to music than the Grammys. The week's highest chart debut belongs to the soundtrack to the upcoming Madonna-Rupert Everett film "The Next Best Thing," which lands at number 34. Other notable new arrivals include the soundtrack to "2gether" at 71, and the latest from Diggin' In The Crates (featuring the late Big Pun) at 141.
