The compilation "2nd To None" ends up at #3 both in the USA and Canada. Last year "ELV1S 30 #1 Hits" sold a combined 563,000 in the first week in both countries and was #1, this year the new album sells a combined 193,000 copies.
It looks like Elvis fans in general are a bit pessimistic, since the "independent" Hollywoodreporter website cheered about the sales of "2nd To None": "RCA Music Group's latest Elvis Presley compilation "Elvis 2nd to None," which features a Paul Oakenfold remix of "Rubberneckin'," makes an impressive debut at No. 3 on 181,350 copies sold."
