50 Cent Holds Off Beck

50 CENT has done the near impossible and kept rocker BECK off the top of the US album charts.

Beck's new disc GUERO was expected to charge to the top of the charts upon its release a week ago (30MAR05) - and end the CANDY SHOP rapper's four week run at number one with THE MASSACRE.

But 50's album stood firm and shifted another 211,000 units to retain top position. Beck entered the chart at number two with his highest sales week ever which saw 162,000 copies snapped up.

Imprisoned rapper BEANIE SIGEL had some good news - his new album THE B COMING sold 131,000 copies to debut at number three, while boy band 112 entering the chart at number four with PLEASURE + PAIN.

WILL SMITH's new album LOST + FOUND is also a top 10 new entry - it debuts at number six.

And funnyman LARRY THE CABLE GUY's THE RIGHT TO BARE ARMS has made history at number seven with the largest opening sales week for a comedy album in chart compilers Nielsen SoundScan's 14-year history.
