Despite a 40% drop in sales over the previous week, the Beatles' "1" album (Apple/Capitol) holds onto the top spot on The Billboard 200 for a sixth week in a row, on the strength of more than 268,000 copies sold, according to SoundScan. The new chart will be officially released tomorrow (Jan. 11). This week's top-10 was relatively inert, except for a 10-8 jump for Sade's "Lovers Rock" (Epic) and a 17-9 climb for Dido's "No Angel" (Arista). The latter album, which has spawned the hit singles "Thank You" and "Here With Me," debuted at No. 144 on The Billboard 200 way back on June 3. Each of the first 40 entries on the chart experienced a dip in sales of at least 13.5%, and no new albums debuted this week. Only four titles enjoyed any sales gain whatsoever: the "Save The Last Dance" soundtrack (Hollywood), which jumped 76-41 with sales of 41,375 units; the "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" soundtrack (Mercury), which rocketed 192-90 thanks to 16,5000 units sold; Anne Murray's "What A Wonderful World" (Chordant), which climbed 177-107; and the various artists set "Wow Worship: Today's 30 Most Powerful Worship Songs" (Word), which re-entered the chart at No. 144 this week.C
