Sarah McLachlan's first studio album of original material in seven years was no match for a Canadian hip-hop sensation on the charts.

Drake's debut effort, "Thank Me Later," blasted top spot on the Canadian charts thanks to sales of 31,000 copies. Drake beat out Sarah McLachlan's "Laws of Illusion" (22,000), which premiered at No. 2, according to Nielsen SoundScan data.

The former "Degrassi: The Next Generation" star also nabbed the top spot stateside, selling 446,000 copies of "Thank Me Later" in the U.S., according to Billboard.com.

Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers' "Mojo" (14,000) entered the Canadian charts at No. 3, while Jack Johnson's "To the Sea" was relegated to the No. 4 position after spending one week at No. 1.

Two "Glee" soundtracks occupied the next two spots – "Glee: The Music, Journey to Regionals" at No. 5 and "Glee: The Music, Volume 3 Showstoppers" at No. 6 – while another soundtrack, the "Twilight Saga: Eclipse," dropped three spots to No. 7.

Rounding out the top 10 was Justin Bieber's "My World 2.0,” Christina Aguilera's "Bionic" and Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now."

In the U.S., Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers placed second, followed by Sarah McLachlan in third, the "Now 34" collection in fourth, and Jack Johnson in fifth.
