And who's the No. 1 on the chart? It's "Now That's What I Call Music! 22" which taking in another 127,000 copies to score a third week on top. Following at number three on the Billboard 200 is Kidz Bop's "Kidz Bop 10" with more than 116,000 in sales. Stone Sour, in the meantime, debuts at No. 4 with their sophomore release, "Come What(ever) May", sold 81,000 copies. Last week's leader, LeToya Luckett's "LeToya" drops four to No. 5 with 65,000 copies.
Next on the chart is Tom Petty's "Highway Companion" which drops two places to No. 6 with 57,000. Gnarls Barkley's "St. Elsewhere" followed behind at No. 7, sold 53,000 copies. The other charts holdovers are Five for Fighting's fourth record, "Two Lights," moving 52,000 to be at No. 8, Pharrell Williams's "In My Mind" at No. 9 with 51,000, and Nickelback's "All the Right Reasons" again enters the chart at No. 10 with 44,000 copies.
