November 05, 2009|Todd Martens

The two-disc souvenir to the behind-the-scenes concert film "Michael Jackson's This Is It" bowed at No. 1 on the U.S. pop chart Wednesday.

The album sold 373,000 copies for Sony Music, according to Nielsen SoundScan, leading a charge of 12 new albums on the U.S. pop 200.

Meanwhile, Jackson's "Number Ones" sold an additional 32,000 copies during the last week. That album had sold more than 440,000 copies in the 10 days after his death last June, and may well end up as 2009's top-selling album.
