Shaggy's "Hotshot" (MCA) reclaims the top spot on The Billboard 200 from the album that earlier this month ended its four-week reign at No. 1: Dave Matthews Band's "Everyday" (RCA). "Hotshot" sold more than 209,000 copies in the U.S., according to SoundScan, knocking "Everyday," which moved 199,400 units, down to No. 2. Three new albums make a major impact on the chart this week, led by Eric Clapton's "Reptile" (Reprise) at No. 5. R&B singer/songwriter Tank, who got his start as a backup singer for Aaliyah and Ginuwine, lands at No. 7 with his Blackground/Virgin debut "Force Of Nature." Fellow R&B act Jaheim opens at No. 9 with his own debut album, "Ghetto Love" (Divine Mill/Warner Bros.). Other notable debuts this week come from French electronic duo Daft Punk's "Discovery" (Virgin), which bows at No. 44 after debuting at No. 2 in the U.K. last weekend. Canadian rock band Our Lady Peace premieres at No. 81 with "Spiritual Machines" (Columbia), while country trio Trick Pony opens at No. 91 with its self-titled Warner Bros. debut. Among the albums on the move is the Corrs' "In Blue" (Atlantic), which posts an 81% increase over its previous week sales and jumps 79-42. The act will enjoy additional U.S. exposure in the coming days, as it will fill in for illness-plagued PJ Harvey as the support act for the first four shows of U2's "Elevation" tour. That trek kicks off Saturday (March 24) in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Kid Rock protege Uncle Kracker climbs from No. 57 to a new high of No. 40 in its 11th week, while the "Coyote Ugly" soundtrack (Curb) bounced back 28-14. The new chart will be posted tomorrow (March 22) on Billboard.com.
