After grabbing the No. 1 spot last week after 26 weeks on The Billboard 200, Shaggy was not about to let go so quickly. His MCA album "Hotshot" holds at No. 1 on the strength of more than 245,000 copies sold, according to SoundScan, easily outdistancing the Beatles' "1" (Capitol), which rises 4-2 after selling more than 151,000 units. Jennifer Lopez's "J. Lo" (Epic), which lost the No. 1 spot to Shaggy last week, drops to No. 4. The new chart will be posted tomorrow (Feb. 15) on Billboard.com.

Three titles jump back into the top-10 after more than 12 weeks of release, with Lenny Kravitz's "Greatest Hits" (Virgin) up 11-7, Sade's "Lovers Rock" (Epic) climbing 13-8, and Crazy Town's "The Gift Of Game" (Columbia) leaping 16-10.

The week's top debut comes from the various artists collection "Grammy Nominees 2001" (Capitol) at No. 29, followed by country veterans Diamond Rio's "One More Day" (Arista) at No. 36. Rod Stewart's Atlantic debut "Human" comes in at No. 50, followed by Donny Osmond's "This Is The Moment" (Decca) at No. 64. The R&B/rap edition of the "Grammy Nominees" album opens at No. 85.
