"Enya's Only Time' is the right song for now."
——Jerry Suarez, Valley Media


Ja Rule's "Pain" Continues For Another Week, Enya Climbs to #2 and Bubba Squeezes Out Sparxxx With #3 Bow
From The Dukes of Hazzard to Jeff Foxworthy, America sure do love them rednecks. And the debut album from hick-hopper Bubba Sparxxx, Dark Days, Bright Nights, bowed in the #3 spot this week, with sales crossing the 150k mark. The first release on Timbaland's Beat Club/Interscope imprint is the lone debut in the Top 10—which means that Murder Inc./IDJ's Ja Rule remains at #1 for the second week. Yee-haw, kiddies!

However, the big story comes from a favorite of sensitive, New Age rednecks, Reprise's Enya, who continues to grow, with a sales increase of 28% this week.

Take it away, retail redneck: "Enya's Only Time' is the right song for now, plus I love chewin' tobaccy. I wish Bubba Sparxxx would marry my sister," said Valley Media's Jerry Suarez, just before going out to work on a car that was up on blocks in his front yard.

Roadrunner/IDJ's Nickelback and Roc-A-Fella/IDJ's Jay-Z round out the Top Five. Yep, just like last week, IDJ has three acts in the Top Five.

The other noteworthy debuts are Columbia's 15-year-old Welsh soprano Charlotte Church at #13 and Priority/Capitol's Bones ST at #24. The movie stars Snoop Dogg and the ST features Snoop, with tracks from D12, Cypress Hill and Snoop/OutKast. Priority/Capitol is having success with another soundtrack as well, with Training Day increasing by 26%.

Also building are American/Columbia's System of a Down, climbing back into the Top 10, and DreamWorks' Nelly Furtado, who is growing on the strength of new single, "Turn Off the Light."

Next week, just in time for Halloween, Epic comes with a new release from ageless metal maniac Ozzy Osbourne. Ozzy should battle it out for the top spot with Ja and Enya.
