Aerosmith's "Just Push Play" (Columbia) was right behind, debuting at No. 2 on the strength of 240,000 units sold, according to SoundScan. Eve's "Scorpion" (Ruff Ryders) bowed at No. 4 after sales of 161,700 copies.
It is a mixed second week for the rest of last week's top debuts. DJ Clue's "The Professional 2" (Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam) falls 3-5, while Project Pat's "Mista Don't Play Everythangs Workin" (Loud) drops 4-9. Rapper Silkk The Shocker's "My World, My Way" (No Limit) crashes 12-31, and Jessica Andrews' "Who I Am" (DreamWorks) slides 22-41.
Other notable debuts this week come from R&B duo Koffee Brown's "Mars/Venus" (Arista) at No. 32, modern rock outfit Oleander's "Unwind" (Universal) at No. 94, and roots rocker Delbert McClinton's "Nothing Personal" (New West) at No. 103.
In a week where few albums in the top-100 post gains over last week, Kid Rock protege Uncle Kracker's "Double Wide" (Top Dog/Lava/Atlantic) continues its forward motion, leaping 75-57 in its 10th week. The album's success has been spurred by the single "Follow Me," which is No. 20 on Billboard's Top 40 Adult chart and No. 60 in its second week on The Billboard Hot 100.
The new chart will be posted tomorrow (March 15) on Billboard.com.
