Staind bump Tool from top of the charts.
Is this a new trend? For the second week in a row a rock debut has landed the top spot on the Billboard 200 album charts. Staind’s major label sophomore effort, “Break the Cycle” will claim the No. 1 spot on the charts when they are published in next week’s issue of Billboard.
Just last week Tool’s highly anticipated release, “Lateralus”, landed at number 1, but Staind’s new album pushed Tool into second place this week. “Break the Cycle” sold 716,000 in its first week on record store shelves, breaking the first week sales records of recent releases by Janet Jackson and Destiny’s Child.
The other highflying debut on next week’s chart will be rapper Redman’s latest effort “Malpractice”. Here is a look at the Top 5:
3. Destiny’s Child
5. Missy Elliott
