The E.N.D. is nigh! No, don’t start stocking up on canned goods and drinking water. We just mean that the Black Eyed Peas are occupying pole position on the Billboard 200 albums chart with their CD of that name, thanks to first week sales of 304,000.

Amazingly, this is Fergie and crew’s first No.1 collection. Their last album, 2005’s Monkey Business, was held off the top spot by Coldplay’s X&Y. In other chart news, Aventura’s CD Last debuted at No. 5, while Mos Def’s latest collection, The Ecstatic, hit No.9.

Pleasure P rounded out the Top Ten with The Introduction of Marcus Cooper. It was also a good week for Sammy Hagar’s supergroup Chickenfoot, whose eponymous album is at No. 4.
