(antiMusic) 50 Cent didn't have what it takes to beat Kanye West but Reba sure did. While he still has the biggest ego in popular music but Kanye West is no longer king of the charts after a 76% drop in sales he was dethroned from the top of the charts after only one week by country queen Reba McEntire's star-studded new effort "Reba Duets."

"Reba Duets" sold 301,000 copies last week according to Nielsen SoundScan data released by Billboard magazine. Kanye's "Graduation" landed at No. 2 with sales of 226,000 copies which helped him again beat 50 Cent. Fiddy's "Curtis" suffered an almost 80% drop in sales with 143,000 sold last week to earn him 3rd place.

Boomers love the 60s and 50s and not so much the 70s, at least that's the message they sent last week when Barry Manilow's latest "The Greatest Songs of the Seventies" saw a significant drop in first week sales from his previous two offerings. 113,149 is sales was still strong enough to give him a No 4 debut on the charts but is decades away in sales from his Sixties and Fifties packages which had first week sales of 202,000 and 156,000 copies respectively.

Kenny Chesney's "Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates" rounded out the top 5 with 112,000 in sales. James's Blunt's sophomore effort "All the Lost Souls," sold 92,000 copies to debut at No. 7 while Chamillionaire's "Ultimate Victory" placed a distant 8th with 79,000 first week sales. KT Tunstall's second effort, "Drastic Fantastic," debuted at No. 9 after selling 50,000 in the US. and Twista sold 41,000 copies of his new one "Adrenaline Rush 2007" to finish out the top 10.

The top 20 was dominated by debuts this past week with Eddie Vedder's "Into the Wild" soundtrack coming in at No. 11, H.I.M.'s "Venus Doom" at 12, Motion City Soundtrack's "Even If It Kills Me" at No. 16, Diana Krall's "The Very Best of Diana Krall" at No. 19, Dropkick Murphys' "The Meanest of Times" rounding out the Top 20, according to Billboard.
