Bieber tops chart with just a little over 60,000 copies sold according to Nielsen SoundScan, marking the second-lowest week at No. 1 since SoundScan's sales information began powering the Billboard 200 in May of 1991.
Justin Bieber's "My World 2.0" album is back at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, but with a rather dreary sales figure . . . It's the Bieb's fourth nonconsecutive week at the top of the chart . . . the National, the Dead Weather, Charice and As I Lay Dying also see their latest efforts bow in the top 10 . . . Katy Perry's "California Gurls" heats up the Digital Songs chart as it enters at No. 1 with an eye-popping bow of 294,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Even with a 40% decline in sales, the soundtrack to Disney's "High School Musical 2" remains atop The Billboard 200 for a second week. The set moved 367,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The sales decrease is the smallest second-week slump for an album that started with 500,000 or more since Kenny Chesney's "When the Sun Goes Down" declined by only 36% in February 2004.
