George Strait Still Tops on U.S. Albums Chart

Country veteran George Strait's "50 Number Ones" hits package ruled the U.S. pop albums chart for a second consecutive week, as new releases from Celine Dion, rapper Mos Def and pop-punk band Sum 41 debuted in the top 10, according to sales data issued Wednesday.

Strait's MCA Nashville set sold 190,000 copies in the week ended Oct. 17, according to tracking firm Nielsen SoundScan, while R&B singer Usher's reissued "Confessions" (LaFace/Zomba) held steady at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 with 176,000 copies.
