After last week's blowout week on the Billboard 200 -- where there were seven debuts in the top 10 -- this week's tally is slightly tamer. While there are still three new albums that arrive in the top 10, the Hot Shot Debut is Marilyn Manson's "The High End Of Low" at No. 4 with 49,000. While it gives the band its sixth top 10 set, it arrives with the lowest opening week sum of any of its albums since the live effort "The Last Tour On Earth" began with 26,000 in 1999. The group's last studio release, 2007's "Eat Me, Drink Me," entered the list at No. 8 with 88,000.
Eminem's "Relapse" holds on to the No. 1 slot with ease, shifting 211,000 in its second week, down 65.3% from its whopping bow last week with 608,000. With 819,000 sold, "Relapse" has already become the fifth best-seller of the year. Taylor Swift's "Fearless" leads the pack with 1,173,000. So far, only two albums have shifted a million in 2009, "Fearless" and the "Hannah Montana: The Movie" soundtrack (1,004,000). At this point last year, believe it or not, only one album had surpassed a million -- Jack Johnson's "Sleep Through the Static."
Back in the top 10 this week, Wisin and Yandel's "La Revolucion" debuts at No. 7 with 36,000. That marks the highest charting set on the Billboard 200 for the duo and their second-best opening sales week. The act's last set, "Wisin Vs. Yandel: Los Extraterrestres," entered at No. 14 with 53,000. Despite the lower sales frame for the new album it still opens at No. 7, making it the highest charting Spanish-language album since Mana's "Amar Es Combatir" debuted and peaked at No. 4 in September 2006 off an 87,000 opening sales week.
