Shania Twain has maintained her status for having the number one selling album of the SoundScan era (1991-2006) for 'Come On Over'.It wasn't a huge sales year for the album. It sold just 53,000 units according to Nielsen SoundScan. However, Metallica is closing the gap, with the black album registering sales of around 340,000 units in 2006.
The only change in the Top 10 is the departure of Britney Spears and the addition of The Beatles. Britney dropped from No. 10 last year for 'Baby One More Time' and The Beatles '1' came in at No.9 pushing Celine Dion's 'Falling Into You' into 10th spot.
