Pop’s taken backseat to country, rap and rock yet again on the Billboard 200, as Slipknot came out on top, selling 132,000 copies of their latest album .5: The Gray Chapter in their opening week.

From there, the Top 10 is a melting pot of different genres, and six debut albums: T.I.‘s 80K-selling Paperwork came in next, followed by 73-year-old industry titan Neil Diamond, rapper Logic‘s Under Pressure and Florida Georgia Line‘s Anything Goes, which originally charted at #1 last week.

Of particular interest to pop fans? Barbra Streisand‘s duets album Partners is holding strong at #8, while Annie Lennox makes a Top 10 debut with Nostalgia — her first since 2007’s Songs of Mass Destruction. According to Billboard, the standards album also awards Lennox with her first-ever Jazz Albums and Traditional Jazz Album #1 smashes. Brava, Annie!
