Chart Watch: McCartney, Moulin

TOP 10: To no one's surprise at all, Destiny's Child's Survivor holds onto the top spot on the charts, selling another 359,000 copies, totaling more than a million U.S. sales in just two weeks. The sales of Paul McCartney's Wingspan and the Moulin Rouge soundtrack, however, are surprising. They sell 220,000 and 118,000 copies, to land at No. 2 and No. 5, respectively.

McCartney's Wings project bumped Janet Jackson's All for You down to No. 3, where it still sold more than 215,000 copies. And coming in at No. 4, with sales of almost 144,000, is the sixth volume of the mega-successful Now That's What I Call Music compilation series.

Set This Circus Down sells another 104,000 copies for Tim McGraw at No. 4, while Tupac Shakur's Until the End of Time comes in at No. 7, with sales of 78,000. Shaggy's Hot Shot remains at No. 8, selling 77,000, followed by last week's No. 5, Stevie Nicks' Trouble in Shangri-La, which sells 76,000 at No. 9. And wrapping things up is Uncle Kracker's Double Wide, with sales of more than 73,000 copies.

ALMOST FAMOUS: Moving up to No. 11 is Train's Drops of Jupiter, which sells almost 67,000.

NOTABLE DEBUTS: Outside of the Top 10, The Black Crowes' Lions bows the highest, selling 53,000 copies at No. 20. All Killer, No Filler, from Sum 41, sells almost 49,000, enough to earn it a debut at No. 23. At No. 38 is Peppers & Eggs, the latest Sopranos soundtrack. Billy Gilman's Dare to Dream sells 29,000 at No. 45, Hi-Tek's Hi-Teknology sells 23,000 at No. 66, Blues Traveler sells 17,000 copies of Bridge at No. 91, and Look Into the Eyeball, the latest one from former Talking Heads honcho David Byrne, sells 12,000 copies at No. 120. Additionally, the soundtrack to A Knight's Tale comes in right at No. 100, selling more than 15,000 copies.

COUNTRY BUMP: The Academy of Country Music Awards, held last week, helped out several albums, all of which came in between Nos. 53 and 59 and selling between 25,000 and 27,000 copies. They include: Kenny Chesney's Greatest Hits (No. 55), Toby Keith's How Do You Like Me (No. 56), the Dixie Chicks' Fly (No. 57), Faith Hill's Breathe (No. 58), and Tim McGraw's Greatest Hits (No. 59).

BOTTOM FEEDING: This week's No. 200: Vertical Horizon's Everything You Want, which sells 6,423 copies to earn the honor.
