NEW YORK, Feb. 15 (UPI) -- Jack Johnson and Friends' "Sing-A-Longs and Lullabies for the Film Curious George" entered The Billboard 200 albums chart at No. 1 this week.

The soundtrack Johnson released on his own Brushfire label and including duets with Ben Harper, G. Love and Matt Costa also took over the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Rock Albums chart.

Mary J. Blige's "The Breakthrough" held on to No. 2 on the Top 200 while last week's No. 1, Barry Manilow's "The Greatest Songs of the Fifties," fell to No. 3.

Andrea Bocelli's "Amore" fell to No. 4 while Dem Franchize Boyz' sophomore set, "On Top of Our Game" bowed at No. 5 and Il Divo's "Ancora" remained at No. 6.

With the help of three Grammys, Mariah Carey's "The Emancipation of Mimi" jumped from No. 14 to No. 7 and ditto for Kelly Clarkson, who saw "Breakaway" spring from No. 24 to No. 8 on the Top 200.

Eminem "Curtain Call: The Hits" fell to No. 9 and closing out the Top 10 was Jamie Foxx's "Unpredictable."

Domestic sales rose 10 percent over the previous week at 12 million units, but were down 7 percent compared to the same week a year ago. Sales for 2006 were 2 percent behind last year's rate at 63.3 million units.
