Spice Girls Hold Off KRS-One On The Charts

May 29 [12:00 EDT] -- KRS-One makes an impressive debut on next week's "Billboard" album chart, but it's still not enough to knock the Spice Girls off the top of the heap.

The rapper's latest effort, "I Got Next," debuts at number three on next week's album chart, while the Spice Girls' "Spice" and Bob Carlisle's "Butterfly Kisses" hold on to the one and two slots respectively.

The soundtrack to "I'm Bout It" also makes a strong debut, crashing into the chart at number four. Other new entries into top 20-land include James Taylor's "Hourglass" (number nine), Foo Fighters' "The Colour and the Shape" (number ten), Boot Camp Clik's "For The People" (number 15), Sammy Hagar's "Marching to Mars" (number 18), and Toad the Wet Sprocket's "Coil" (number 19).

The "Billboard" singles chart continues to be the domain of Hanson, as the teen brothers hold onto number one with "Mmmbop." The three brothers from Tulsa, Oklahoma fend off a charge from incarcerated British popster

Mark Morrison whose "Return of the Mack" pushes up to number two from number four.

Elsewhere on the chart, the Verve Pipe's hit "The Freshmen" continues to climb, jumping up three slots to number five. Further down the chart, Changing Faces finally make their move into the top ten as "G.H.E.T.T.O.U.T." leaps from number 12 to number eight.

Tonic is the big mover in the modern rock top ten, as Third Eye Blind ("Semi-Charmed Life") and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones ("The Impression That I Get") remain in the top two spots on the chart. Tonic's "If You Could Only See" kicks up three spots to number three.

K's Choice makes its first appearance in the top ten with "Not An Addict" landing at number six.
