Seven new albums crashed the top 10 this week in Canada, topped by Madonna at No. 1.

Her double-disc hits collection, "Celebration," came in on top with 17,000 in sales, according to figures compiled by Nielsen SoundScan.

Five more premieres crowded the second to sixth slots: Barbra Streisand's "Love Is the Answer" (13,000) landed at No. 2, Paramore's "Brand New Eyes" (12,000) at No. 3, Alice in Chains' "Black Gives Away to Blue" at No. 4, Mariah Carey's "Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel" at No. 5, and the French compilation "Generation Passe-Partout" at No. 6.

The slew of debuts sent Three Days Grace's "Life Starts Now" down five positions to No. 7, and Pearl Jam's "Backspacer" sank from No. 1 to No. 8.

The last top 10 entry of the week went to Jann Arden's "Free" at No. 9, while the Black Eyed Peas' "The E.N.D. (Energy Never Dies)" went from No. 5 to No. 10.

In the U.S., Barbra Streisand entered in first, followed by Paramore in second, Mariah Carey in third, Breaking Benjamin's "Dear Agony" in fourth, and Alice in Chains in fifth.
