musicNEWS: Janet Jackson Ushered To No. 2

Updated 04-7-04 Keavin
If the Super Bowl half-time "costume malfunction" was a publicity stunt to help sales of Janet Jackson's new album, then it failed. Not even the flash of a breast seen round the world could return Janet Jackson to her former glory. The pop singer’s new album "Damita Jo," debuted with a little over half the first week sales of her previous album, and it wasn’t enough to steal the No. 1 spot from Usher. 

Jackson’s new album sold about 381,000 copies during its first week in stores. This is down from 605,000 in first week sales for her last album, "All For You," which landed at No. 1 on the charts. 

Jackson’s malfunctioning wardrobe was not enough to unseat Usher from the top of the charts. His new album, "Confessions,” debuted at No. 1 last week and had strong second week sales of 486,000 units to remain at No. 1 and deny Janet the glory. 

Elsewhere on the charts it was a week of Hip-hop and established rockers. Lil Flip's “U Gotta Feel Me” landed at No. 4 behind the latest installment of “Now That's What I Call Music!”. Aerosmith made a nice landing at No. 5 with their new blues album, “Honkin' on Bobo”. Eric Clapton brought the blues back into the Top 10 as well with his tribute to Blues legend Robert Johnson, “Me and Mr. Johnson,” which landed at No. 6. 

J-Kwon’s “Hood Hop” came in at No. 7. Norah Jones’ “Feels Like Home” was at No. 8. Axl Rose may not have wanted Guns n' Roses' “Greatest Hits” to be released but the fans obviously wanted it enough to put it at No. 9 and the top 10 was rounded out by Kanye West's “College Drop Out”.
