With the recount, R&B breakout star Usher was bumped down to Number Two. The repackaged version of his runaway hit album Confessions -- featuring three new tracks, including a duet with Alicia Keys -- sold 336,000 copies this week.
Another error in today's tally placed R.E.M.'s Around the Sun at Number Fourteen: they also got a promotion -- but only one spot, to Thirteen, with 61,000 sold rather than the reported 59,000.
This week's Top Ten: George Strait's 50 Number Ones; Usher's Confessions; Good Charlotte's Chronicles of Life and Death; Korn's Greatest Hits, Vol.1; Nelly's Suit; Hilary Duff's Hilary Duff; Green Day's American Idiot; Rascal Flatts' Feels Like Today; Tim McGraw's Live Like You Were Dying; Ciara's Goodies.
