Eminem smashes Korn

Eminem smashes Korn. The rapper handily bested Korn and ruled the nation's record stores for the fourth week in a row

Eminem ate some Korn on the cob at U.S. record stores this week, as the new-metal pioneers failed to dislodge the rapper from the No. 1 slot on the latest Billboard album chart. Korn’s ”Untouchables” sold about 434,000 copies (more than 100,000 fewer units than their last album sold in its first week), while ”The Eminem Show” moved 530,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan figures cited in published reports.

David Bowie’s new album, ”Heathen,” made a respectable debut at No. 14, while the ”Osbournes Family Album,” featuring Kelly’s attempt at ”Papa Don’t Preach,” hit No. 13. Besides Korn, the only debut to hit the top 10 was punk rockers New Found Glory’s ”Sticks and Stones,” which slid in at No. 4.

The rest of the top 10 includes: ”Totally Hits 2002” at No. 3, P. Diddy’s ”We Invented The Remix” at No. 5, Ashanti’s self-titled debut at No. 6, the indomitable ”O Brother, Where Art Thou?” soundtrack at No. 7, country singer Kenny Chesney’s ”No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problems” at No. 8, R&B crooner Donell Jones’ ”Life Goes On” at No. 9, and Avril Lavigne’s ”Let Go” at No. 10.
