Jack Johnson Scores Second No. 1 Album
Jack Johnson unseats Alicia Keys from her comfortable place at #1 with his latest effort, "Sleep Through the Static".


Despite her wins and performance at the 50th Grammys on Sunday, February 10, Alicia Keys cannot retain her album's position at #1 on the Billboard Hot 200 chart this week. "As I Am" is forced to sit at #3 despite a 31 per cent increase in sale this week. Jack Johnson's "Sleep Through the Static" fills in the top spot.
