It's like déjà vu all over again. For the second time in less than a year, the [artist id="2088128"]Jonas Brothers[/artist] are the kings of Billboard, as their Lines, Vines and Trying Times will debut at #1 on next week's albums chart.
According to Nielsen SoundScan, Lines sold more than 247,000 copies to snag the top spot on the chart, giving the JoBros their second #1 debut. Last August, their A Little Bit Longer also bowed atop the Billboard chart, selling more than 525,000 copies in its first week of release. Sure, Vines only sold half of what Longer did, but who's counting? That's two-straight #1s (for studio releases, that is; their "3-D Concert Experience" soundtrack bowed at #3 earlier this year) for the guys from Wyckoff, New Jersey. And once again, it wasn't even close.
The Black Eyed Peas' The E.N.D. slips out of the top spot to #2, selling close to 148,000 copies. The Dave Matthews Band's Big Whiskey & The GrooGrux King is next at #3, with sales of more than 88,000 copies. Eminem's Relapse is #4, with sales of more than 72,000 copies.
Rounding out the top five is the week's second-highest debut, Incubus' Monuments & Melodies greatest hits package, which sold just under 70,000 copies. Lady Gaga's The Fame (#6, 47,000 copies), Chickenfoot's self-titled disc (#7, 43,000 copies), the "Hannah Montana" movie soundtrack (#8, 42,000 copies), Green Day's 21st Century Breakdown (#9, just under 40,000 copies) and Taylor Swift's Fearless (more than 38,000 copies) close out the top 10.
Outside the top 10, there are debuts from Michael Bublé, whose Michael Bublé Meets Madison Square Garden sold more than 30,000 copies to land at #14, Hank Williams Jr. (#19) and the Tom Morello/ Boots Riley collabo Street Sweeper Social Club, who sold more than 14,000 copies of their self-titled debut to land at #37. Oh, and Spinal Tap proved they can still "Break Like the Wind," as their Back From the Dead album sold more than 10,000 copies to debut at #52.
