Michael Buble Blocks 'New Moon' Soundtrack From No. 1 on Hot 200


Although it fails to debut atop Billboard Hot 200, 'The Twilight Saga's New Moon' soundtrack is predicted to climb to No. 1 next week.

Michael Buble stays at the top spot of the U.S. albums chart with his October 9 release "Crazy Love" after becoming last week's champ. Michael's second-time reign has prevented "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" soundtrack album to rule the chart and forced the compilation to sit at the second place.

Michael's fourth studio album, "Crazy Love" has sold additional 203,000 copies in its second week on sale. Previously, this record pulled in 132,000 copies, outselling KISS' latest studio installment "Sonic Boom".

As for "New Moon" soundtrack, the compilation has garnered around 115,000 copies since making its way out across U.S. on October 16. The effort has failed to follow the success of soundtrack album from the film's first series, "Twilight", which debuted atop Hot 200 with 165,000 units in 2008.

Filled with songs from Death Cab for Cutie, Thom Yorke, The Killers and Muse among others, "New Moon" soundtrack, however, is predicted to move up to No. 1 next week with Tim McGraw's newly-released set "Southern Voice" as another chart-topper contender.

Other new entries on the Billboard Hot 200 are The Flaming Lips and Mario. Flaming Lips score their highest chart performance at No. 8 with their album "Embryonic", while Mario starts at ninth spot with "D.N.A." which peaks at No. 2 on another Billboard chart, Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.
