Wed, 03 Sep 2008 16:11:59
Billboard reported its tightest Top 200 countdown ever this week, with The Game's LAX initially edging ahead of Slipknot's All Hope Is Gone by just 13 units. A recount found the latter beating the Game by 1,134 copies, however: 239,516 albums sold according to Nielsen SoundScan numbers, as compared to the rapper's 238,382.
Elsewhere in the world, All Hope Is Gone has scored the No. 1 slot in Australia, Austria, Canada, Finland, New Zealand, Sweden and Switzerland. Not to mention No. 2 in Belgium, France, Germany, Japan and the UK, and No. 3 in Norway. And to think everyone was worried about the Game facing off with Fiddy a couple months ago!
