In the albums chart, teen star Miley Cyrus debuted at number one with her new album Breakout, which shipped 371,000 copies in the US to achieve the second-biggest opening week of 2008 for a female artist, according to industry monitors Nielsen Soundscan.

Country duo Sugarland achieved their highest-ever chart position as the deluxe version of their Love On The Inside opened at number two while the soundtrack to Mamma Mia! sold 168,000 copies to retain the number three spot.
