Billboard article

on Jovi scores its fifth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart as "What About Now" debuts with 101,000 sold in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It's the act's third straight studio album to debut at No. 1, following "The Circle" (2009) and "Lost Highway" (2007). They previously claimed No. 1s with "New Jersey" (1988) and "Slippery When Wet" (1986).

The veteran band beats the also-debuting David Bowie, who arrives at a career-high No. 2 with "The Next Day," selling 85,000. The rock legend's new album -- his first studio set since 2003 -- earns his largest sales week for an album since SoundScan started tracking data in 1991. (Bowie's previous best SoundScan-era sales frame came when 2002's "Heathen" started with 55,000 at No. 14.)

"The Next Day" is Bowie's seventh top 10 album. He last logged a top 10 way back in 1983 with the No. 4-peaking "Let's Dance." Until this week, Bowie's highest-charting album had been 1976's "Station to Station," which spent two weeks at No. 3.

The full top 10 of the Billboard 200 will be revealed on Wednesday, March 20.
