Despite being the world's most famous (and richest) teenager (not to be confused with Dick Clark, the world's oldest teenager), Miley Cyrus just couldn't replicate the first-week sales success of her latest LP, Breakout. Thanks to a 56 percent plunge in retail interest, Cyrus' new one sold just 162,800 copies during its second week of commercial release, which wasn't enough to keep the "Hannah Montana" star's set at #1 on Billboard's weekly albums sales chart.
Instead, last week's #2, country act Sugarland's Love on the Inside, climbs to the chart's peak, selling 171,400 copies. Of course, that doesn't mean one week on top is all Cyrus is going to get — hell, if Sugarland can do it, Miley certainly stands a chance of reclaiming the throne next week. On the other hand, the new Jonas Brothers' LP dropped on Tuesday, which means the next chart is going to be a doozy.
But this latest Top 200 is more of a snoozer, with just seven new releases impacting the chart. The biggest debut on next week's chart belongs to Third Day's Revelation. That disc opens at #6, having sold 75,400 units, according to the latest sales data released by Nielsen SoundScan. The only other newcomer to crack the top 10, the 14th installment of the Kidz Bop Kids series, enters at #8 with 58,400 scans.
At #3 with 137,800 sold, is the soundtrack to "Mamma Mia," followed at #4 by Kid Rock's Rock N Roll Jesus, which scanned another 95,7000 copies. Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III holds at #5, selling 78,700 units, while Coldplay's Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends claims the #7 position, with 69,700 sold. The "Camp Rock" soundtrack drops two spots to #9, selling to the tune of 57,600, and Nas' untitled latest rounds things out at #10, with 41,000 scans.
Elsewhere on the chart, System of a Down offshoot Scars on Broadway's self-titled debut bows at #17, on the strength of 23,900 scans. Rick Springfield's Venus in Overdrive surfaces at #28, with 15,600 sold. Alice Cooper's Along Came a Spider debuts at #53, with 9,900 copies snatched up, and Soulfly's Conquer comes in at #66 with 8,400 scans. Meanwhile, Tristan Prettyman's iTunes Live Session enters at #115, with 5,400-plus downloads.
