Soundtracks square off on chart

'Glee' fends off 'Twilight' soundtrack

TV trumped film on the national album chart last week, as the latest “Glee” collection fended off the new “Twilight” soundtrack to take No. 1.

Columbia’s “Glee” EP “Journey to Regionals” bowed at the top with first-week sales of 152,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan figures for the week ended Sunday.

The Fox show’s latest full-length release, “The Music Vol. 3” — which debuted at No. 1 just three weeks ago — stood at No. 7 for the week with sales of 40,000 (off 11%).

New “Glee” set’s lower price point definitely gave it a leg up on “The Twlight Saga: Eclipse,” which entered at No. 2 with a 144,000-unit debut. Atlantic/Chop Shop set, which includes tracks by Muse, the Dead Weather, Florence + the Machine and other top contempo acts, should have legs, since Summit pic doesn’t open until June 30.

Soundtrack slugfest highlighted a week sporting six debuts in the top 10.

Christina Aguilera’s “Bionic” (RCA), the diva’s first collection of new material in four years, arrived at No. 3 behind out-of-the-box sales of 110,000. The singer recently canceled her summer tour, claiming inadequate rehearsal time.

Prior week’s No. 1 entry, Jack Johnson’s “To the Sea,” dipped to No. 4 behind a 63% sales decline and a tally of 89,000 units.

Prolific rapper Plies’ “Goon Affiliated” (Atlantic) entered at No. 5. Florida-bred performer’s fourth full-length set since his 2007 debut scanned 56,000 copies.
