The 28th edition of the "Now That's What I Call Music..." series starts at No. 2 on the chart with 185,000. All 28 of the multi-label compilations have reached the top 10 on the chart, as have many of its spin-offs, including "Now That's What I Call Christmas." "Now That's What I Call Classic Rock," which also debuted this week, bows at No. 20 with 23,000.
After topping the chart last week, Usher's "Here I Stand" (LaFace/Zomba) slips to No. 3 with 145,000, a 67% decrease in sales.
Ashanti lands at No. 6 with "The Declaration" (Universal Motown), shifting 86,000. (Not Bad) Her last studio effort, 2005's "Concrete Rose," started at No. 7 with 254,000 during Christmas week 2004. (P.S. Ashanti looks real unhappy to be standing next to Wendy Williams lol)
At No. 10, Chris Brown's "Exclusive" (Jive) enjoys a whopping 261% increase to 36,000, thanks to a reissue of the album last week with additional songs.
At No. 19 Bun B "II Trill" comes in with 24,180 copies sold.
Look for Lil Wayne and NERD to be a top of the charts next week.
