LOS ANGELES, Aug. 7 (UPI) -- With such a powerful lineup, there's no dislodging "Bad Boys II" from atop the Billboard 200 chart for a third straight week.
The soundtrack, packed with tracks by such hitmakers as 50 Cent, Nelly, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and P. Diddy, holds onto the top spot despite a 21 percent slip in U.S. sales to 155,000 copies, Billboard said Thursday.
In its three weeks, "Bad Boys II" has sold more than 670,000 copies.
The Billboard 200's No. 2 post is occupied for a second week by the 13th volume of the "NOW That's What I Call Music!" series (Universal/EMI/Zomba/Sony). Beyonce's "Crazy in Love" (Columbia) rises to third on the chart and Evanescence's Wind-Up debut "Fallen" is right behind.
The sole debut in top-10 of the album chart is "LSG2" (Elektra) at No. 6, featuring Gerald Levert, Keith Sweat and Johnny Gill.
