The soundtrack to Disney's "Hannah Montana" holds on to the throne of The Billboard 200 for the second week in a row, selling 203,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Sales of the set, which features music from Miley Cyrus, fell of 28% from last week's No. 1 debut with 281,000.

"The Greatest Songs of the Sixties" by Barry Manilow enters at No. 2, just behind "Hannah Montana" with 202,000 copies. The Arista set is the singer's second top two debut this year, as "The Greatest Songs of the Fifties" bowed at No. 1 in February.

The combined powers of Birdman and Lil Wayne yield a No. 3 debut for "Like Father, Like Son" (Cash Money), which moved 176,000. Birdman, aka Baby, has only been in the top 10 once before as a solo act, with 2005's "Fast Money" (No. 9). Lil Wayne has racked up five prior top 10 albums, including 2005's "Tha Carter II" (No. 2).

After debuting at No. 3 last week, John Legend's "Once Again" (G.O.O.D. Music/Columbia) slips to No. 4 with 115,000 copies, a sales hit of 50%. Justin Timberlake's Jive effort "FutureSex/LoveSounds" descends 4-5 with 86,000 (-3%). My Chemical Romance's "The Black Parade" (Reprise), which came in as runner-up to "Hannah Montana" last week, slides to No. 6 with 86,000 on a 64% sales decrease.

The Who's Universal/Republic album "Endless Wire," its first studio set since 1982's "It's Hard," cracks the 200 at No. 7 with 81,000. It is also the band's best charting week since 1981's "Face Dances" peaked at No. 4.


Another veteran rock act, Meat Loaf, earns chart ink this week with "Bat Out of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose," which debuts at No. 8. The Virgin set sold 81,000, providing Loaf his best charting week since 1993's smash hit "Bat Out of Hell II: Back Into Hell" reached No. 1. His last studio set, 2003's "Couldn't Have Said It Better," topped out at No. 85 and spent just four weeks on the chart.

"American Idol" season five finalist Kellie Pickler's "Small Town Girl" (BNA) opens at No. 9 with 79,000. The album also crowns the Top Country Albums tally.

Back on The Billboard 200, the Deftones round out the top tier with "Saturday Night Wrist" at No. 10 (76,000). The band's last Maverick album, a 2003 self-titled set, debuted at No. 3. Other big debuts this week include Pitbull's sophomore set "El Mariel" (TVT), which moved 48,000 copies to land No. 17. Christian artist Jeremy Camp's Tooth & Nail album "Beyond Measure" bows at No. 29 with 31,000, his best charting and sales week yet.

Overall CD sales are up 6.4% from last week's count and down 2% compared to the same week a year ago at 10.67 million units. Sales for 2006 are down 5% compared to 2005 at 444.2 million units.

See what happens when a lover doesn't sell as well as expected, Beyonce, they seem to get the boot. :tape:

The Fanilows aren't gonna like Hannah Montana staying at number one.
At the same time he can't make classics into better classics, he's never had the vocals to really take on the 60s.
The only ones who can happen to be the ones that were singing in the 60s. Barry isn't one of those.

What part of not selling as well as expected are you not understanding?
It doesn't matter what the other artist are selling.
If she was expected to get to 2 times platinum by next Thursday's Billboard chart then that's considered not selling as well as expected.

If you haven't noticed the Hannah Montana soundtrack is on pace to outsell Beyonce and will likely be right behind High School Musical and Justin Timberlake in sales this year.

It is highly relevant what other artists are selling. The sales market is not what it used to be and continues to deteriorate. Sales can no longer be examined objectively so the only way to really understand the popularity and commercial success of an artist is in relation to their competitors. Beyonce is heavily outselling all her closest rivals with the exception of those who exploited holiday sales periods or have been on the charts for a substantially longer period. That indicates that she is doing as well as can be possibly be expected given that the consumer demand for albums is substantially lacking. If Beyonce is ostensibly not selling as well as expected it is indicative of two things:

(a) that you concede she is a bona fide superstar who should be obtaining unrealistic sales; or
(b) every other female artist she is competing with is a flop

I hadn't noticed that Hannah Montana was on track to outsell Beyonce given that by Beyonce's second week she had sold a substantial number more than what Hannah Montana has done. Beyonce is maintaining longevity and her album continues rising on Itunes so the real problem is your opportunistic nature in attempting to make snide comments about her at every semblance of an opportunity.

I can concede that black fags for the most part think her as a bona fide superstar who should be obtaining unrealisic sales.

I can also concede that every other female artist is a flop this year.
Perhaps people have expected more since Kelly Clarkson or Mariah Carey spoiled them last year.
No female artist has sold 2 times platinum in the states this year and
it should be expected.
Not one of the artist on the list have an album in which you don't have to skip through a couple of songs including Beyonce.
