Jennifer Lopez Outsold by Beastie Boys, Fleet Foxes

Jennifer Lopez is in the middle of a career comeback thanks to her stint judging American Idol, but did that TV magic rub off on her recording career? Yes ... and no. Her new album Love?, supported by the hit single On the Floor, debuted at No. 5 on the charts this week with around 80,000 copies sold — an improvement from her last album, Brave, but nowhere near the several hundred thousand records her biggest albums have sold during their debut weeks. Lopez was topped on the charts by a strong No. 4 bow from the Fleet Foxes album Helplessness Blues, the deathless Now That's What I Call Music series at No. 3, the Beastie Boys album Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 2 in the second slot, and Adele's 21, which continues its domination at No. 1.
