Apparently, everybody in America was too busy filing to run for governor of California this week to go to the record store. This week's Billboard album chart resembles nothing so much as last week's chart, with only one new entry in the entire top 50. That would be Wynonna's ''What the World Needs Now Is Love,'' which debuted at No. 8 with a modest 54,000 copies sold, according to SoundScan. Leading a weak-selling pack was P. Diddy's ''Bad Boys II'' soundtrack, which moved another 121,000 units to hold the top spot for a fourth week. It was also the only disc this week to sell more than 100,000 copies.

At No. 2 for the third straight week was compilation ''NOW That's What I Call Music! Vol. 13,'' which sold about 81,000 copies. Evanescence's ''Fallen'' and Beyoncé's ''Dangerously in Love'' switched places, with ''Fallen'' landing at No. 3 (79,000 copies) and ''Dangerously'' at No. 4 (74,000). Chingy held at fifth place with ''Jackpot'' (67,000 discs). This year's top 10 mainstays, 50 Cent's ''Get Rich or Die Tryin''' and Norah Jones' ''Come Away With Me,'' finished at No. 6 and No. 7. Ashanti's ''Chapter II'' slid one slot to No. 9, and Linkin Park's ''Meteora'' rose two spaces to No. 10. Maybe new releases next week from Alan Jackson (his second ''Greatest Hits'' set) and Dashboard Confessional can put some juice into the chart.
