    Even with a 40% decline in sales, the soundtrack to Disney's "High School Musical 2" remains atop The Billboard 200 for a second week. The set moved 367,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The sales decrease is the smallest second-week slump for an album that started with 500,000 or more since Kenny Chesney's "When the Sun Goes Down" declined by only 36% in February 2004.

    Talib Kweli earns his first top 10 album with "Ear Drum," which bows at No. 2 with 60,000. The Blacksmith Music/Warner Bros. effort also provides the rapper with his best sales and charting week yet.

    Miley Cyrus' Disney double-disc set "Hannah Montana 2 (Soundtrack)/Meet Miley Cyrus" slips 2-3 with 58,000, a 30% drop in sales. Another soundtrack, New Line's "Hairspray," climbs 5-4 despite a 17% sales hit with 53,000, while the "NOW 25" hits compilation flip-flops with it, 4-5, with 52,000 (-20%). Fueled by the popularity of the current single "Big Girls Don't Cry," Fergie's "The Dutchess" (will.i.am/A&M/Interscope) continues its rebound 7-6 with 50,000 (-5%).

    Disney's "High School Musical 2" soundtrack holds onto the top position on the nation's album sales chart for the third consecutive week, selling 210,000 copies in the week ended Sunday.

    Album has now sold 1.19 million copies. New releases occupied four slots in the top 10.

    "The Altar and the Door" (Reunion) from Christian act Casting Crowns posted career best numbers for the band. "Altar" sold 129,000 copies to debut at No. 2, according to Nelsen SoundScan.

    Yung Joc's "Hustlenomics" (Bad Boy) took the third slot, selling 69,000 copies.

    Atreyu, which had recorded for Victory, had its first album for Hollywood, "Lead Sails Paper Anchor," sell 43,000 to land at No. 8 with 43,000.

    Ben Harper's "Lifeline" (Virgin) phoned 41,000 friends to start at No. 9.

    With Miley Cyrus' "Hannah Montana 2 (Soundtrack)/Meet Miley Cyrus" selling 58,000, Disney has three of the top 10 discs.

    Lyle Lovett's first release in four years, "It's Not Big It's Large" (Lost Highway), sold 25,000 copies to open at No. 18.

    "High School Musical 2" cast

    Billboard

    In a quiet week for new releases, the soundtrack to Disney's "High School Musical 2" remains atop of the The Billboard 200 for a fourth week. The set moved 165,000 copies in the U.S., a 22% decrease from last week's total. It's the first album to rule the roost on the big chart for four weeks straight since March 2005, when 50 Cent's "The Massacre" was at the summit.

    Despite a 4% decrease to 49,000, Fergie's "The Dutchess" (Interscope) continues to rebound 5-2, the highest rank yet for the album in its 51 weeks on the chart. Miley Cyrus' Disney double-disc set "Hannah Montana 2 (Soundtrack)/Meet Miley Cyrus" climbs 4-3 with 47,000, despite a 20% sales dip. After bowing last week at No. 2, Casting Crowns' "The Altar and the Door" (Reunion) falls to No. 4 with 41,000 (-69%).

    Equal Vision act Chiodos' "Bone Palace Ballet" is the only debut within the top 40 on the chart, entering at No. 5 with 39,000. The rock act's third effort easily trumps the No. 164 bow and peak of 2006's "All's Well That Ends Well" with 6,000.

    New Line's "Hairspray" soundtrack stays put at No. 6 for a second week with 39,000 (-13%) while the "Now 25" hits compilation remains at No. 7 for a second week with 38,000 (-14%).

    Kanye Crushes 50 Cent In Huge Album Sales Week

    Kanye West
    September 18, 2007, 8:35 PM ET

    Billboard

    Kanye West's "Graduation" (Def Jam) easily leads the star-studded class of Sept. 11 releases, posting The Billboard 200's largest sales total in more than two years. Nielsen SoundScan will show West's album moved 957,000 during its first six days when the tracking service refreshes its charts tomorrow morning (Sept. 19).

    Also pumping album volume are 50 Cent's "Curtis" (G-Unit/Interscope), which will lock down the No. 2 slot with 691,000 sold. Kenny Chesney's "Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates" (BNA/Sony BMG Nashville) will bow at No. 3 with 387,000 copies.

    The total for West's "Graduation" is the largest by any album since 50 Cent's "The Massacre" opened with 1.1 million copies in March 2005. West's own August 2005 album, "Late Registration," was the last album to surpass 800,000 copies when it began with 860,000.

    While West beats 50 Cent in the celebrated clash between rappers, the real winners are music merchants. With the "High School Musical 2" soundtrack at No. 4 selling 133,000 copies, the top four titles alone account for 2.2 million units, more than all titles combined on last week's entire Billboard 200.
