The Eagles land Number One spot on US chart

New policy relegates Britney Spears to Number Two

The Eagles have landed at the Number One spot on the US Billboard chart this week, due to a new policy instituted by Billboard.

‘Long Road Out Of Eden’ — the band’s first studio album in 28 years — took the top spot now that titles available via one retailer are eligible to appear on the Billboard chart.

The Eagles’ album, which is being sold primarily through Wal-Mart stores in the US, moved approximately 711,000 copies in the past week.

Meanwhile, Britney Spears’ new album ‘Blackout’ was pushed back to Number Two as a result of the new rule, selling 290,000 copies its first week out.
