In a race for the top, the country star slips past rising R&B artist with fewer than 3,000 copies.
Last week's race for the No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 between Ariana Grande and Tamar Braxton was nothing compared with the showdown on this week's tally.
Country star Keith Urban debuts at No. 1 with "Fuse," edging out the also-arriving "Kiss Land" by the Weeknd at No. 2. Fewer than 3,000 copies separate the albums, which enter the chart with rounded figures of 98,000 and 95,000, respectively, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
