Justin Bieber scoots back to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with "My World 2.0," shifting 102,000 copies (down 65%) in its third week on the chart. It bowed atop the list two weeks ago with 283,000 but fell to No. 2 last week upon the No. 1-arrival of Usher's "Raymond v Raymond" (329,000 in its debut). This week, Usher's set slips to No. 2 with 92,000, down 72%.
The chart's highest debut arrives at No. 3 from guitar god Slash with his self-titled album starting with 60,000. It's the former Guns N' Roses' and Velvet Revolver member's first solo effort, although he has a lot of help from some very famous friends on the set. Each of its tracks sports guest vocals from a familiar artist, including guest turns from Fergie, M Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold, Kid Rock, Ozzy Osbourne, Kid Rock, Dave Grohl and Adam Levine.
Slash's set, released on the artist's own Dik Hayd label through EMI Label Services, helps give EMI Music Marketing something to crow about this week: the company owns three out of the top five albums on the Billboard 200 for the first time since 2004. Slash's album joins Lady Antebellum's Capitol Nashville set "Need You Now" at No. 4 -- up one slot -- with 57,000 (down 34%) and Capitol's "Now 33" compilation at No. 5 -- down two -- with 53,000 (down 57%).
