There's no keeping up with Norah Jones. Her ''Feels Like Home,'' which has held the top spot on the Billboard album chart since its release and sold nearly 2 million copies, spent a fourth week at No. 1 and moved another 204,000 units, according to SoundScan. Her nearest challenger, surprisingly, was Jessica Simpson, whose eight-month-old album ''In This Skin'' vaulted 14 spots to No. 2 (160,000 sold), thanks to a rerelease that included extra tracks and DVD footage of the ''Newlyweds'' star. Another chart mainstay, Evanescence's ''Fallen,'' celebrated its one-year anniversary on the chart by climbing one spot to No. 3 and selling another 118,000 copies.

Kanye West's ''The College Dropout'' dropped two rungs to No. 4 on sales of 107,000. Kenny Chesney's ''When the Sun Goes Down'' held at No. 5 and shifted another 90,000 units. OutKast's ''Speakerboxxx/The Love Below'' (No. 6) and Josh Groban's ''Closer'' (No. 7) swapped places from last week. ''The Very Best of Sheryl Crow'' rose two to No. 8, pushing Twista's ''Kamikaze'' and Eamon's ''I Don't Want You Back'' down one place each, to ninth and 10th, respectively. The week's top selling debut, at 56,000 copies, was ''Cee-Lo Green Is the Soul Machine,'' which made the scene at No. 13.
