Although experiencing more than 50 percent drop in sale, 'Glee' soundtrack still reigns Hot 200, blocking Stone Temple Pilots from becoming a new champion.
This week, Billboard Hot 200 is quite sleepy as there is only one new entry, Stone Temple Pilots' self-titled album, which is able to crack the Top 10 by bowing at the second place with 62,000 copies. Standing in the band's way to take the top spot is last week's champ "Glee: The Music, Volume 3 Showstoppers" which stays at No. 1 with 63,000 units.
This becomes the "Glee" soundtrack's second consecutive week on the top position. But, "Glee" will unlikely hold their position next week as Jack Johnson's newly-released effort "To the Sea" is predicted to knock them off the hot spot with around 250,000 copies sold by week's end on June 6.
On the third place, Justin Bieber's "My World 2.0" secures the spot by pulling 50,000. Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" and Usher's "Raymond vs. Raymond" follow at No. 4 and 5 with 46,000 and 35,000 units respectively.
After kicked out of the Top 10 list, Lady GaGa's "The Fame" returns at No. 6 with 31,000. The Rolling Stones' "Exile on Main St." re-release and The Black Keys' "Brothers", meanwhile, have to fall five spots to No. 7 and 8 with 27,000 and 26,000 copies respectively. Carole King and James Taylor's "Live at the Troubadour" sits at No. 9 with 26,000, while Nas and Damian Marley's "Distant Relatives" rounds up the Top 10 with 25,000.
