Joe can't rest easy, as his single should face a challenge in coming weeks from Janet's "All For You," which bolts straight to No. 14 to become the highest debut of any title in more than two years. The grip of "Stutter" is also slipping in pure R&B markets, as the single falls to No. 3 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart.
This week's only movement in the top-10 of the Hot 100 is spurred by 112's "It's Over Now," which is the fastest-growing track at retail. The hip-hop-influenced R&B quartet reaches No. 1 over on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks, as "It's Over Now" skips 3-1 on that tally.
The Hot 100's greatest gainer at radio this week is Nelly's "Ride With Me" featuring City Spud, which shoots 43-32. Beyond Janet, the strongest debut is Destiny's Child "Survivor," which safely lands at No. 43 several months ahead of the group's similarly titled Columbia album.
As reported yesterday, the Dave Matthews Band's "Everyday" makes a smashing debut at No. 1 on The Billboard 200, selling more than 732,000 copies in the U.S., according to SoundScan. "Everyday" is the second Dave Matthews Band album to debut at No. 1, as 1998's "Before These Crowded Streets" (RCA) previously earned the top spot. With the entry of the Glen Ballard-produced set, fans no longer needed to turn to the band's single, "I Did It," which slips 75-82 on the Hot 100, to hear the group's rockier new sound.
DJ Clue's "The Professional 2" (Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam) and Project Pat's "Mista Don't Play Everythangs Workin" (Loud) also make top-5 debuts, arriving at No. 3 and 4 respectively. The two albums are back-to-back at No. 1 and 2 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart as well. Silkk The Shocker's "My World, My Way" (No Limit) is another high debut on that chart at No. 3; the album opens at No. 12 on The Billboard 200.
Elsewhere on album chart, Pearl Jam breaks its own record for simultaneous debuts, as seven titles from its North American live bootleg series arrive via Epic. In October, the band set a new record when five of its European tour bootlegs landed on the chart at once.
The soundtrack to the Coen Brothers' film "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" (Mercury) makes it a fourth week at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart, holding off a powerful No. 2 debut from Jessica Andrews' "Who I Am" (DreamWorks). Toby Keith's "You Shouldn't Kiss Me Like This" moves into the top slot on the Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, pushing back Diamond Rio's "One More Day" to No. 2.
Aerosmith's "Jaded" couldn't make it a sixth week at No. 1 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, as "Outside," from Staind's Aaron Lewis and Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, hits the peak in its 14th week. "Incubus' "Drive," however, holds on for a third week at No. 1 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart.
Teen rapper Lil' Bow Wow stands tall at No. 1 for a second week on Billboard's Hot Rap Singles chart with "Bow Wow (That's My Name)," while City High's "What Would You Do?" shoots 13 places to the No. 3 slot.
