WE LOVE LOVATO!
Michael’s Still Got Three in Top 10, Seven in Top 20, While Jordin Sparks Bows at #10
Here we go again. Looks like Disney’s got another teen pop idol on its hands.

The House of Mouse busts out Demi Lovato’s sophomore Hollywood Records release, Here We Go Again, which lands at #2, with 114k in first-week sales, just behind Michael Jackson’s Epic compilation Number Ones, which recaptures the top slot, selling 161k more copies.

Number Ones is one of three Jackson titles still in the Top 10, along with Thriller (#5) and Essential (#6), while the King of Pop boasts four more albums in the Top 50 in Bad (#12), Off the Wall (#13), Dangerous (#15) and Motown’s Jackson 5 Ultimate Collection (#17).

19/Jive/ZLG American Idol alum Jordin SparksBattlefield is the other Top 10 debut (#10), with fellow Idol grad Daughtry’s Leave This Town (#3), Columbia’s Maxwell (#4), Sony Music’s Now 31 (#7), Disney’s Hannah Montana 3 soundtrack (#8) and Interscope’s Black Eyed Peas (#9) rounding out the leader board.

That gives Rolf Schmidt-Holtz’s Sony Music Entertainment seven of the Top 10 (Barry WeissRCA/JIVE Label Group boasting two of them), with Bob Cavallo’s Disney Music Group nabbing two.

The week’s biggest double-digit gainer is RCA/RMG’s Kings of Leon, riding the crossover Pop success of their smash hit single, “Use Somebody,” moving #16-11, +20%.

Other movers include Atlantic’s Zac Brown Band (#24-20, +2%) and Capitol Nashville’s Darius Rucker (#34-29, +2%).

Thrive’s Total Club Hits 3 (#43) also debuts on the chart, while Big Machine’s Taylor Swift debut (#46), Roadrunner’s Theory of a Deadman (#48), Epic’s The Fray (#49) and Capitol Nashville’s Keith Urban (#50) all re-enter the Top 50.

Hitting stores this week are IDJ’s Fabolous and Kristinia DeBarge and Warner Bros.Ashley Tisdale.
