Hologram or no hologram, the King of Pop couldn't manage to rule the charts this week.

Michael Jackson 's new, posthumous album XSCAP E debuts at #2 on the Billboard album chart with first-week sales of 157,000.  It was beaten to the top spot by Turn Blue , the new album by alt-rock duo The Black Keys , which sold 164,000 copies.  It's the act's first-ever #1 album.

XSCAPE , meanwhile, is the late King of Pop's tenth top 10 album.  His most recent entry was 2010's Michael, which reached #3.  It, like XSCAPE, was made up of previously unreleased tracks. 

Elsewhere on the chart, two big country acts, Rascal Flatts and Dolly Parton , debut at #5 and #6, respectively.  This is Dolly Parton's highest-charting solo album in the entire history of her decades-long career.  '90s alt-rock goddess Tori Amos debuts at #7 with her new album, Unrepentant Geraldines.  It's her highest-charting album since 2007.

Meanwhile, the year's best-selling album, Frozen, has fallen to #4.
