Nelly remains in No. 1 slot

Eminem unseats Britney for No. 2 by fewer than 7,000 discs

Nelly’s “Country Grammar” (Fo’ Real/Universal) continues to dominate the nation’s recorded music sales chart, landing in the No. 1 spot for the fifth straight week on sales of nearly 192,000 units, according to SoundScan reports.

“The Marshall Mathers LP” by Eminem, whose performance on MTV’s Video Music Awards was widely seen during the sales period ending Sunday, was No. 2 on sales of 149,000, beating Britney Spears’ “Oops … I Did It Again” (Jive) by fewer than 7,000 discs.

Priority recording artist C-Murder was the lone debut in the top 10, reaching No. 9 on sales of just under 76,000. C-Murder displaced the “Coyote Ugly” soundtrack, which fell to No. 11 from No. 10.

‘Clay’ stays firm

Top of the album chart continues to include Creed’s “Human Clay” (Wind-up) at No. 4 on sales of 107,000, ‘N Sync’s Jive disc “No Strings Attached” at No. 5 and 3 Doors Down’s “Better Life” on Universal, which sold 101,500 last week. Papa Roach’s “Infest” (DreamWorks) and DJ Clue’s “Backstage Mixtape” (Def Jam/Universal) round out the top 10.

Priority Records also had the second-highest charting debut of the week as Mack 10 sold 47,000 copies to reach No. 19.

Upper reaches of the chart stand to be rearranged next week due to the release Tuesday of three heavily promoted discs: Christina Aguilera’s Spanish-lingo record “Mi Refleja (My Reflection)” on RCA; LL Cool J’s “GOAT” (Def Jam); and Barenaked Ladies’ “Maroon” on Reprise. Silkk the Shocker, one of Master P’s No Limit rappers, also has a new release, “My World My Way.”
