Next week's Billboard albums chart is not ruled by the popular rap artist from Compton or topped by a trio of East Bay punks. Nor can a bottle-blonde bad boy from Detroit, a clean-shaven country crooner or even Usher lay claim to #1. No, next week's chart champs are actually some everydudes from Escatawpa, Mississippi.
It's 3 Doors Down, their third album, Seventeen Days, sold more than 231,000 copies in its first week of release to capture #1, according to SoundScan. It's the group's first-ever #1 debut, besting their last album, Away From the Sun, which opened at #8 back in 2002 before going on to sell more than 3 million copies in the U.S. Their first album, 2000's Better Life, bowed at #104, but has sold more than 6 million copies.
Seventeen Days also bumped the Game back down to #2. Compton's finest sold more than 158,000 copies of The Documentary, but for the second time in a month, he finds himself knocked down. It's been an up-and-down ride for the Game, who over the past four weeks has been #1, #2, #1 again and now back to #2.
