Backstreet Boys Hold On As Sarah McLachlan, Will Smith Charge Chart

The one-two punch of the Backstreet Boys and Ricky Martin will continue their reign atop the "Billboard" album chart next week, but only after holding off strong debuts from Sarah McLachlan and the "Wild Wild West" soundtrack.

The Backstreet Boys sold an additional 338,000 copies of their "Millennium" album to hold on to the top spot according to sales figures released by SoundScan on Wednesday. The Boys edged out Ricky Martin, who sold another 313,000 copies of his self-titled album to stay at number two.

With his hip-hop swan song, Mase just barely missed the top ten as his "Double Up" sold more than 107,000 copies to debut at number 11. Santana also managed to score a top 20 debut as the band's "Supernatural" (which features appearances from Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean, Everlast, Dave Matthews, Eric Clapton, Eagle Eye Cherry, and Matchbox 20 frontman Rob Thomas) sold more than 72,000 copies in its first week out to claim the number 19 spot.

Other notable debuts include

702's self-titled debut at 34, former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell's "Schizophonic" at 42, Heavy D's "Heavy" at 60, Edwin McCain's "Messenger" at 72, Sway & King Tech's "This or That" at 107, Joey McIntyre's "Stay the Same" at 163, and Jonny Lang's "Wander This World" at 187.

As far as the staying power of last week's new arrivals, the Red Hot Chili Peppers manage to stay in the top ten as their "Californication" slips from number three to number seven, while Smash Mouth see a small dip from their debut at 10 last week to number 15 next week. Meanwhile, after an impressive debut at number 11, Def Leppard slips to number 27 next week with "Euphoria."
