From Billboard :

Timberlake Can’t Nudge ’8 Mile’ From No. 1

The Shady/Interscope soundtrack to ’’8 Mile’’ maintains itsgrip on the No. 1 position of The Billboard 200 for a second-straightweek, withstanding a mighty charge from Justin Timberlake’s’’Justified’’ (Jive). Sales of the Eminem-heavy soundtrack slipped 28%to 508,000 units, according to Nielsen SoundScan, but that total wasstill enough to fend off ’’Justified,’’ which sold 439,000 units andbows at No. 2. The two albums hold the same positions on Billboard’sTop R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.

As impressive as the numbers for Timberlake’s set are, the ’N Syncmember’s solo debut expectedly fell far short of the 1.9 million unitssold by the group’s most recent Jive release, 2001’s ’’Celebrity.’’

Yet in a battle of solo efforts from boy band members, Timberlake isthe clear winner. As ’’Justified’’ debuts at No. 2, Backstreet BoyNick Carter’s solo Jive debut ’’Now or Never’’ plummets from No. 17to No. 63 in its second week on The Billboard 200. Timberlake’s firstsingle, ’’Like I Love You,’’ made it into the top-15 of Billboard’sHot 100 last week ; Carter’s ’’Help Me,’’ meanwhile, managed only aNo. 36 peak last month on Billboard’s Top 40 Mainstream chart.

’’Justified’’ is one of four top-10 debuts on The Billboard 200,with a comfortable lead over the No. 3 entry of U2’s ’’The Best of1990-2000/The B-Sides’’ (Interscope). That two-disc set sold 185,000units ; a single-disc version that does not include a compilation ofB-sides, was released yesterday (Nov. 12). The band’s last two-discgreatest hits set, a collection of songs from 1980-1990, arrived atNo. 2 in November 1998 on sales of 237,000 units.

Jaheim’s ’’Still Ghetto’’ (Warner Bros.) lands at No. 8 on TheBillboard 200 on sales of 111,000 units, a stronger entry thanlast year’s ’’Ghetto Love.’’ The latter sold 80,000 units in itsfirst week to arrive at No. 9. On the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart,Jaheim’s set debuts at No. 3.

The latest live effort from the Dave Matthews Band, ’’Live at FolsomField’’ (RCA) soars to No. 9 on a sales of 110,000 units. The numberisn’t quite as strong as the 131,000 copies posted by ’’Live inChicago 12.19.98,’’ which entered at No. 6 at this time last year.

Christina Aguilera’s ’’Stripped’’ (RCA) suffered a 49% sales hitto 168,000 units and falls two two slots to No. 4, while Santana’s’’Shaman’’ dips one to No. 5 after a 20% slide to 140,000 units. FaithHill’s ’’Cry’’ (Warner Bros.), which is No. 1 on Billboard’s TopCountry Albums roundup for a fourth-straight week, holds at No. 6 onThe Billboard 200. With Eminem’s movie riding high, his album ’’TheEminem Show’’ (Shady/Interscope) saw a 14% gain to 115,000 units,earning it a one-rung boost to No. 7. Interscope’s self-titled Nirvanacollection, saw a 53% sales slide to 109,000 units, and slides fromNo. 3 to No. 10.

Another three new albums land inside the top-20 of The Billboard 200, led by Andrea Bocelli’s collaboration with the London SymphonyOrchestra, ’’Sentimento’’ (Phillips), at No. 12. His last album,’’Cieli di Toscana,’’ performed similarly, soaring to No. 11 lastNovember. On the other end of the musical scale, Detroit’s InsaneClown Posse arrives at No. 15 with ’’The Wraith : Shangri-La’’(Riviera), and U.K. singer/songwriter David Gray notches his highestalbum chart-position to date with the No. 17 bow of ’’A New Day atMidnight’’ (ATO).

Elsewhere, ’’Irv Gotti Presents the Remixes’’ (Universal) arrives atNo. 24, the Wallflowers’ ’’Red Letter Days’’ (Interscope) enters atNo. 32, Alison Krauss + Union Station dock at No. 36 with their latestlive collection from Rounder, and Deborah Cox’s ’’The Morning After’’(J Records) settles in at No. 38.

Tony Bennett’s collaboration with k.d. lang, ’’A Wonderful World’’(Columbia), glides to No. 41 to give Bennett’’ his best showing on TheBillboard 200 since 1966 when ’’The Move Song Album’’ hit No. 18. ’’AWonderful World,’’ a collection of interpretations of Louis Armstrongsongs, was heavily promoted on television last week, with a feature on’’20/20’’ and appearances by the two on ’’Live With Regis and Kelly’’and ’’The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.’’

Further down the chart, Alan Jackson’s ’’Let It Be Christmas’’(Arista) arrives at No. 52, and thanks to the increased focus onthe artist after his five wins at last week’s CMA Awards, his album’’Drive’’ receives a major boost. That former No. 1 set cruises 94-23on a whopping 293% burst to 50,000 units.

All of Billboard’s latest charts will be posted tomorrow (Nov. 14)on Billboard.com.
