EPMD Scores Week’s Highest Debut

Limp Bizkit may have played to a crowd of half a million at
Woodstock ’99 (including Pay-Per-View), but this week’s SoundScan
album chart found them still playing second banana to the
Backstreet Boys.| The boy band’s Millennium, which
reclaimed its No. 1 position from Bizkit’s Significant
last week, remains the country’s best-selling album with
244,900 units sold. Limp Bizkit held onto No. 2, followed by Ricky
Martin and Britney Spears. The week’s sole new entry in the Top
Five was Sarah McLachlan’s live Mirrorball, which moved up
two spots from No. 7 last week.

Elsewhere in the Top Ten, Smash Mouth’s Astro Lounge leapt
from No. 10 to No. 6, and Kid Rock climbed from No. 11 to No. 7.
Too Short’s Can’t Stay Away, which debuted last week at
No. 5, tumbled to No. 10. This week’s highest debut was the rap duo
EPMD’s Out of Business/Greatest Hits, which bowed at No.
13 with 73,000 copies sold.

From the top, it was the Backstreet Boys’ Millennium,
followed by Limp Bizkit’s Significant Other (235,200);
Ricky Martin (156,200); Britney Spears’ …Baby One
More Time
(137,600); Smash Mouth’s Astro Lounge
(99,600); Kid Rock’s Devil Without a Cause (96,100); Red
Hot Chili Peppers’ Californication (94,500); the
soundtrack to Wild Wild West (88,000); and Too Short’s
Can’t Stay Away (85,000).
