For a third straight week, Shania Twain's "Greatest Hits" stays at No. 1 in Canada.

Shania Twain's latest album will be under a lot of Christmas trees this year.

Twain's "Greatest Hits" held the top spot for a third consecutive week with sales of 73,700, compared to 61,700 last week, according to data compiled by Nielsen SoundScan.

Meanwhile, Eminem and U2 switched places this week, with "Encore" moving into the No. 2 position with 53,400 in sales, while "How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb" fell to No. 3 with 47,000 copies sold.

Green Day's "American Idiot" remained at No. 4, and the seasonal collection "MuchDance 2005" continued its popularity during the Christmas rush, holding at No. 5 after 6 weeks on the charts.

Hilary Duff's self-titled effort moved up one spot to No. 6, while Tupac's latest posthumous release "Loyal To The Game" -- the lone debut this week -- checked in at No. 7.


Rod Stewart's "Stardust... Great American Songbook: Volume III" was locked in at No. 8, "Canadian Idol" winner Kalan Porter's debut "219 Days" sank three positions to No. 9, and Usher's "Confessions" re-entered in top 10 at No. 10.

From where are coming the numbers of the second week? I did not saw it mentioned in artivcles, and frankly it seems to me a bit low.
That's a more than 50% drop.

Actually it was a smaller drop than in the US - remember in the US Shania's GH started at 531K its 1st week but drpped 57% to 231k in the second week - so Canada followed the pattern with that dumb Eminem record in the 1st and 2nd weeks. The numbers came from Soundscan.
