Universal Republic Mississippi rockers 3 Doors Down’s Time of My Life debuts at #3, while Cash Money hip-hop star DJ Khaled’s We the Best Forever bows at #5, sandwiching Columbia’s Beyonce in the #4 slot.

ATO veteran skate-punk thrashers 311’s Universal Pulse is the other Top 10 newcomer at #6, followed by last week’s chart topper from Warner Bros. Nashville’s Blake Shelton (#7), Broken Bow’s resilient Jason Aldean (#8), Shady/Interscope’s Eminem-Royce Da 5”9” rap collabo Bad Meets Evil (#9) and Hollywood’s Selena Gomez & the Scene (#10).
