Grammy-winning songbird Nelly Furtado's latest album "Loose" brings her to the peak of the album charts with the set sold for more than 100,000 copies this week in the United States. Moving 219,000 for the week ended Sunday June 25th, the Mosley Music/Geffen set earning Furtado her best single-week sales and her first No. 1 on the big chart.
What is more from the star is that the album's first single, "Promiscuous" featuring Timbaland, has peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Back to the Billboard 200, securing the runner up position is Underoath's third full-length effort, "Define the Great Line" which sold 98,000 copies in its first week. The Dixie Chicks' "Taking the Long Way" slips from No. 2 to No. 3 with 87,000 units, and Keane's second Interscope album, "Under the Iron Sea," moved 75,000 copies in its first week to open at No. 4.
Last week's champ, Busta Rhymes' "The Big Bang" slips to No. 5 taking in 69,000 copies, just one place ahead of Disney's "High School Musical" at No. 6. with 66,000. Field Mob, in the meantime, scores its first top 10 entry with "Light Poles and Pine Trees" at No. 7, followed after by Gnarls Barkley's "St. Elsewhere", AFI's "Decemberunderground", and "Cars" soundtrack, all of which ranks 8 to 10 in a row.
