Chicago pop-punkers Fall Out Boy made a giant leap onto the Canadian album charts this week.

The quartet's new disc, "Infinity on High," buoyed by the hit single "This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race," debuted at No. 2 on sales of over 21,000.

It marks the band's best ever chart placement. Their previous disc, "From Under the Cork Tree," peaked at No. 7 back in March of 2005.

However, it wasn't enough to unseat Norah Jones's "Not Too Late," which remained at No. 1 with over 27,000 in sales, according to Nielsen SoundScan data.

It was a different story south of the border, where Fall Out Boy (260,000) checked in at No. 1, forcing Jones (236,000) down to No. 2 in the U.S.

Back here in Canada, the second-best debut went to Calgary's own Jann Arden, whose covers disc "Uncover Me" landed at No. 3, racking up over 15,000 in sales.

The movement up top forced the compilation "2007 Grammy Nominees" to fall from No. 3 to No. 4, Nelly Furtado's "Loose" was locked in at No. 5 for a second week in a row, and Justin Timberlake's "FutureSex/LoveSounds" dropped two spots to No. 6.

U.K.'s Bloc Party premiered at No. 7 with their second full-length album "Weekend in the City," and Gwen Stefani's "The Sweet Escape" sank two positions to No. 8.

Madonna had a rough second week on the charts, with her live CD/DVD "The Confessions Tour" sinking seven notches from No. 2 to No. 9, while James Blunt went the other way, rocketing up nine rungs to No. 10.

Other notable debuts included Ashley Tisdale's "Headstrong" at No. 13, The Used's "Berth" at No. 29, and the Barenaked Ladies' "Barenaked Ladies Are Men" at No. 39.

In the U.S., Daughtry's self-titled effort placed third, followed by Akon's "Konvicted" in fourth, and Ashley Tisdale in fifth.
