“Special Occasion” (Island Def Jam) from Bobby Valentino debuted at No. 3, selling 92,000. R&B singer’s debut album also opened a No. 3 but sold nearly twice as many copies.

Mother’s Day sales also aided Barbra Streisand as her “Streisand: Live in Concert 2006” (Columbia) sold 60,000 to open at No. 7. Holiday also gave Carrie Underwood’s “Some Hearts” a 29% bump (No. 8, 57,000).

“Volta” (Elektra/Atlantic) provided Bjork with her first top 10 disc. “Volta” sold 43,000 to open at No. 9.
