Jackson Holds Off Creed For A Third Week At No. 1
Feb 9, 2002
Alan Jackson's "Drive" (Arista Nashville)
cruises to a third week at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 after selling 189,000
units in the U.S., according to SoundScan. Although the total is an 18%
decline from last week, it's more than enough to again hold off the Creed
blockbuster "Weathered" (Wind-Up), which remains at No. 2 after
selling 109,000 units.
U.K. electronic duo the Chemical Brothers bows at No.
32 with "Come With Us" (Freestyle Dust/Astralwerks). The 30,000
units moved by the album falls short of the 42,000 first-week numbers
posted by 2000's "Surrender," but both debuted with the same
chart position. "Come With Us" also debuts No. 1 on Billboard's
Top Electronic Albums tally.
Usher's "U Got It Bad" is No. 1 for a sixth-straight
week on The Billboard Hot 100, holds off Nickelback's "How You Remind
Me" yet again. Ja Rule, however, is making a run for the top with
two separate tracks. "Always on Time" featuring Ashanti is No.
3, and Jennifer Lopez's "Ain't It Funny," on which the rapper
appears, spurts 10-4 this week and is the chart's fastest-growing track
