In the week ended June 26, Nielsen SoundScan noted Coldplay's "X&Y" sold almost 186,500 copies, taking its total to 1.3 million. Such attainment certainly helps Coldplay to hold up its position on top of the U.S. album charts for a third consecutive week Wednesday. With no newcomers, Mariah Carey's "The Emancipation of Mimi" bounces two places to No. 2, with 132,000 copies making its total into 2.2 million since its April 12 release.
At No. 3 is Foo Fighters' "In Your Honor" which with 116,000 copies falls one place from its previous week position. As the Black Eyed Peas' "Monkey Business" ups to No. 4 with 103,000 copies, Boyz N Da Hood's self-titled debut is at No. 5. Keyshia's "Way It Is" sold nearly 89,000 copies at No.6, while "Never Gone" of Backstreet Boys positioned at No.7 with 79,000 copies in its second week. In companion with them all, The Offspring enters the Billboard 200 at No. 8 with its first "Greatest Hits" set. The last two reigning the Top 10 are Birdman's "Fast Money" and System of a Down's "Mezmerize."
