Creed’s Weathered has claimed the top of the Billboard 200 album sales chart for its eighth consecutive week, with more than 138,000 copies sold, according to sources. The streak ties Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP and *NSYNC’s No Strings Attached for the longest un-interrupted run at Number One upon debut.
Meanwhile, this week’s Numbers Two through Four remain the same as last week-Linkin Park’s Hybrid Theory, Ludacris’s Word Of Mouf, and Nickelback’s Silver Side Up. Up four spots to Number Five is Nas’s Stillmatic.
Pink’s Missundaztood claims the sixth spot, followed by Ja Rule’s Pain Is Love; while Alicia Keys’s Songs In A Minor jumps five places to re-enter the top 10 at Number Eight. Rounding out the top 10 are the various-artists collection Now That’s What I Call Music! Volume 8 and Enya’s A Day Without Rain.
The week was slim on debuts, the best being the soundtrack to I Am Sam, featuring covers of Beatles songs, which enters at Number 25.
