Canadians hit the streets to buy up Bedouin Soundclash's latest disc, "Street Gospels."

The Toronto band's new disc debuted at No. 2 in the land, with sales of over 8,000 copies, according to figures compiled Nielsen SoundScan.

It marks Bedouin Soundclash's best chart showing to date. Their debut album, 2004's "Sounding a Mosaic," peaked at No. 26.

However, "Street Gospels" couldn't unseat the "High School Musical 2" (16,000) soundtrack, which remained at No. 1 for a second consecutive week.

Elsewhere on the charts, Timbaland's "Timbaland Presents: Shock Value" moved up from No. 5 to No. 3, Rihanna's "Good Girl Gone Bad" slipped one spot to No. 4, and the compilation "NOW 12" premiered at No. 5.

The "Hairspray" soundtrack dropped down two to No. 6, Claude Dubois' "Duos Dubois" re-entered the top 10 at No. 7, Fergie's "Duchess" laid claim to No. 8, Bon Jovi's "Lost Highway" sank three notches to No. 9, and Justin Timberlake's "FutureSex/LoveSounds" hung on at No. 10.

Other notable debuts included M.I.A.'s "Kala" at No. 16, As I Lay Dying's "An Ocean Between Us" at No. 19, the New Pornographers' "Challengers" at No. 20, and Talib Kweli's "Ear Drum" at No. 23.
