Twain Goes Straight Up! Album Charts

Shania Twain’s Up! debuts at No. 1 on this week’s Billboard 200 and the music trade publication’s Top Country Albums charts. Twain’s two-CD set sold 874,000 copies during its first week of release. In sales trivia, it puts Twain behind only rapper Eminem, whose The Eminem Show sold 1.3 million copies during its first week of release in May. Twain’s 1997 album Come on Over spent almost a year weeks at the top of Billboard’s country chart, although it peaked at No. 2 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart. According to Billboard, Come on Over has sold 14.4 million copies to date, more than any album since SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991. 11/27/02
