SHE’S GOT THE LOOK!
Trey Songz, Chevelle and Pitbull All Bow in Top 10, as Whitney Bows with 300k+
The diva’s back…and she’s been welcomed with open arms. Guess they always will love her.

I Look To You, Whitney Houston’s first new Arista/RMG studio album of original material in seven years, debuts at #1 on this week’s HITS sales chart, with a total topping 300k. Her last album (aside from a 2003 Christmas release), Just Whitney, debuted at #9 with 205k back in 2002.

Hollywood’s Miley Cyrus, last week’s #2 after her Wal-Mart exclusive album, The Time of Our Lives, went on sale before release date, remains in the same spot, with a total of 162k, a whopping 154% increase, thanks to the runaway smash, “Party in the U.S.A.”

Atlantic R&B smoothie Trey Songz is the week’s other Top 5 debut, nestling in at #3 with 136k for Ready, while Epic’s Chevelle (#7) and J/RMG’s Pitbull (#8) are the other Top 10 newcomers.

Epic’s late superstar Michael Jackson continues to hold down a pair of Top 10 slots, with Number Ones at #4 and Thriller at #9, the latter up another 59%.

Last week’s topper, Universal Republic’s Internet-fueled chanteuse Colbie Caillat, drops to #5, with RCA/RMG’s Kings of Leon (#6) and Taylor Swift’s Big Machine perennial (#10) rounding out the top echelon.

Silver Arrow/Megaforce/RED’s Black Crowes lead the group of Top 50 bows, along with RCA Nashville’s Chris Young (#18), Reprise’s The Used (#19), Psychopathic’s Insane Clown Posse (#25) and legendary rocker John Fogerty’s Blue Ridge Rangers Ride Again on Verve Forecast (#27).

Arista Nashville’s Brad Paisley returns to the Top 50 at #42, along with Michael Jackson’s Definitive Collection on Motown (#43), BNA/RCA Nashville’s Kenny Chesney Greatest Hits II and Big Machine’s Taylor Swift debut.

Double-digit gainers include Mercury Nashville’s Sugarland with Love on the Inside (#45-36, +19%), Atlantic’s Zac Brown Band (#18-12, +18%) and Capitol Nashville’s Lady Antebellum (#44-37, +15%).

This week’s release schedule includes Jay-Z’s Roc Nation/Atlantic bow, The Blueprint 3, at the top of the list, followed by Columbia’s Boys Like Girls, IceH20/EMM’s Raekwon, ATO’s Rodrigo Y Gabriela and Phish, Virgin’s Saosin and A Fine Frenzy, Epic’s Howie Day and Hollywood’s Marie Digby.

Oh yeah, we almost forgot… EMI is reissuing the entire catalog of a little group called The Beatles. Perhaps you’ve heard of 'em?
