    T-Pain #1, Rihanna #2

    T-Pain Soars To No. 1 Ahead Of Rihanna, McCartney

    T-Pain's sophomore album "Epiphany" enters on top of The Billboard 200 in a week where six of the top 10 albums are new releases. With sales fueled by the MC's high-powered single "Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin')," the Konvict/Nappy Boy/Jive set moved 171,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. T-Pain's 2005 debut, "Rapper Ternt Sanga," only reached No. 40, selling 47,000 copies in its first week.

    Rihanna's "Good Girl Gone Bad" bows at No. 2 with 162,000. The set's lead single, "Umbrella," currently crowns the Hot 100. This SRP/Def Jam effort is the singer's third release in two years, with each album achieving a better start than its predecessor. 2005's "Music of the Sun" began at No. 10 with 68,000, while 2006's "A Girl Like Me" started at No. 5 with 115,000.

    Paul McCartney earns his third best charting debut since SoundScan began tracking data in 1991 with "Memory Almost Full," which sold 161,000. This album marks the former Beatle's first effort through Starbucks' Hear Music label after a 45-year association with EMI. McCartney's only higher debuts came with 2002's "Back in the U.S. Live 2002" (No. 8, 224,000) and 2001's "Wingspan: Hits and History" (No. 2, 221,000).

    After debuting at the summit last week, R. Kelly's "Double Up" (Jive) slips to No. 4 with 121,000, a 69% sales decrease. Maroon 5's A&M/Octone effort "It Won't Be Soon Before Long" falls 2-5 with 112,000 (-35%).

    Country duo Big & Rich scores a No. 6 start on The Billboard 200 and opens at No. 1 on Top Country Albums with "Between Raising Hell and Amazing Grace" (Warner Bros.), which moved 103,000. The group's last set, "Comin' To Your City," stopped at No. 7 on the big chart in 2005; its 2004 debut, "Horse of a Different Color," also peaked at No. 6.


    Linkin Park's "Minutes to Midnight" (Machine Shop/Warner Bros.) descends 3-7 with 96,000 (-24%). Elsewhere, Marilyn Manson returns to The Billboard 200 with "Eat Me, Drink Me" (Interscope) at No. 8 on sales of 88,000. Manson's last set, 2003's "The Golden Age of Grotesque," debuted at No. 1 with 118,000.

    Reggaeton superstar Daddy Yankee earns his first top 10 album as "El Cartel: The Big Boss" slides in at No. 9 with 82,000, enough to take over the Top Latin Albums chart. His previous Billboard 200 best came with 2005's " Barrio Fino: En Directo," which peaked at No. 24. Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black" falls 6-10 despite a 33% sales increase to 67,000.

    The Police's self-titled A&M greatest hits collection enters the chart at No. 11 with 58,000, a return to the chart after a five-year absence. "The Very Best of ... Sting & the Police" peaked at No. 46 in 2002.

    Other big debuts this week include Chris Cornell's second solo set "Carry On" (Interscope) at No. 17 with 37,000; Dream Theater's "Systematic Chaos" (Roadrunner) with 36,000 at No. 19, a charting best; Bruce Springsteen and his Sessions Band's "Live in Dublin" at No. 23 with 31,000; Carl Thomas' "So Much Better" (Bungalow) at No. 25 with 28,000; the "Vans Warped Tour: 2007 Tour" compilation (Side One Dummy) at No. 31 with 22,000; and veteran rock act Poison's "POISON'D!" (Capitol) at No. 32 with 21,000.

    Album sales are up 5.3% from last week's total at 8.75 million units and down 8.3% compared to the same week last year.

    WAT? R U QUESTIONIN WHAT I SAID? CHECK THE ALBUM CHARTS FOR THE UK AND CANADA, ETC.

    rihanna will still rise to the top, awards are on the way for UMBRELLA from MTV, BILLBOARD, GRAMMY, ETC. she will still top this year. at least she improved frok her recent album debuts. so next album she will be number one. but she is still doin good.
