Demi Lovato rules the Billboard 200 chart this week, as the Disney singer/actress' sophomore album "Here We Go Again" (Hollywood Records) debuts at No. 1 with 108,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Her first set, "Don't Forget," bowed at No. 2 less than a year ago with 89,000.
Lovato's debut marks the fourth No. 1 album of the year for Disney Music Group - a record for the company. Previous chart-toppers in 2009 were Rascal Flatts' "Unstoppable,"the "Hannah Montana: The Movie" soundtrack and Jonas Brothers' "Lines, Vines and Trying Times." Disney had three albums debut at No. 1 in both 2007 and 2006.
But while Lovato ruled the Billboard 200, Michael Jackson once again had the best-selling album. The King of Pop's 2003 hits set "Number Ones" tops the all-encompassing Top Comprehensive Albums chart by shifting 154,000 copies, down 21% from the week prior. (Top Comprehensive Albums ranks the top selling albums in the country, regardless of age; whereas the Billboard 200 houses only new and current titles -- generally those less than 18 months old.)
