The King of Pop can add another crowning achievement to his No. 1 box office run -- he's now atop the Canadian album charts.

Michael Jackson's "This Is It", the companion album to the documentary film, debuted at No. 1 with 44,000 in sales, according to figures compiled by Nielsen SoundScan.

Jackson also grabbed the No. 1 spot south of the border, selling an impressive 373,000 copies of "This Is It" in the U.S.

Back here, Michael Buble's "Crazy Love" (17,000) was bumped to No. 2 after two weeks on top, while Rod Stewart's "Soulbook" (10,000) and Tegan and Sara's "Sainthood" premiered at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively.

Pop-country sensation Taylor Swift climbed nine positions to No. 5, the Black Eyed Peas' "The E.N.D. (Energy Never Dies)" slipped one spot to No. 6, and "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" dropped five to No. 7.

Closing out the top 10 was Creed's "Full Circle" at No. 8, Jack Johnson's "En Concert" at No. 9, and Marc Hervieux's "Apres Nous" at No. 10.

In the U.S., Creed entered in second, followed by Taylor Swift in third, Rod Stewart in fourth, and Trans-Siberian Orchestra's "Night Castle" in fifth.
