Hannah Montana Keeps Manilow Off The Top Of The Us Charts
Country crooner BILLY RAY CYRUS' bubbly daughter has stunned the US pop charts for a second successive week after keeping BARRY MANILOW's covers album off the top of the Billboard 200. MILEY CYRUS' HANNAH MONTANA soundtrack has enjoyed a second 200,000-plus sales week to stay at the top of the charts, beating off a charge from Manilow's new release THE GREATEST SONGS OF THE SIXTIES, which debuts at two, selling just 1,000 copies less (202,000) than Cyrus album. Rappers BIRDMAN and LIL WAYNE's collaborative album LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON, debuts at number three. New albums from JOHN LEGEND and JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE both slip a place at number four and five respectively, while rockers THE WHO return to the top 10 with their best week on the charts since 1981's FACE DANCES debuted at number four. PETE TOWNSHEND and ROGER DALTREY hold the new number seven slot. Another rock veteran, MEAT LOAF, also returns to the top flight, entering the Billboard 200 at number eight with BAT OUT OF HELL III. Also debuting in the new top 10 is AMERICAN IDOL star KELLIE PICKLER's first country album, SMALL TOWN GIRL, at number nine, and rockers the DEFTONES' SATURDAY NIGHT WRIST at 10.
