Janet Jackson's All For You Beats 'Em All

Tim McGraw debuts at #2 with Set This Circus Down.

Janet Jackson's All for You dominated sales at the nation's record stores last week and will debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart after selling 605,128 copies, according to SoundScan data released Wednesday.

All For You's first single — its bouncy title track — is #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart (see "Janet Reminisces Over 'All For You,' Slots 'Lover' For Next Single"). The album is Jackson's first release in four years, following 1997's The Velvet Rope.

Country star Tim McGraw has the week's second-highest debut, landing at #2 with Set This Circus Down. R&B singer Case, meanwhile, debuts at #5 with Open Letter, which has spawned a top-10 hit with the midtempo love song "Missing You."

British pop veterans the Bee Gees are perhaps the most surprising addition to the top 20, coming in at #16 with their first new studio album in four years, This Is Where I Came In.

Other notable debuts include Fear Factory's Digimortal at #32, another "Ally McBeal" soundtrack — featuring vocals by legally besieged actor Robert Downey Jr. — at #34, and KRS-One's The Sneak Attack at #43.

The hits comp Now That's What I Call Music — Vol. 6 ended its three-week reign at #1, dropping to #3.

The rest of the top 10 includes: Tupac Shakur's Until the End of Time at #4, Shaggy's Hotshot at #6, Uncle Kracker's Double Wide at #7, Lifehouse's No Name Face at #8, Dido's No Angel at #9 and Nelly's Country Grammar at #10.

Sunshine Anderson's Your Woman, which debuted at #5 last week, moves to #15.

Among the acts climbing the charts are singer/songwriter David Gray, whose White Ladder jumps from #78 to #64, and former Days of the New members Tantric, whose self-titled album moves from #120 to #84. Also, Southern rap-rockers Saliva's Every Six Seconds moves from #67 to #58, and Eve's Scorpion moves from #13 to #11 after holding the #22 spot two weeks ago.
