React: Why did DMX's streak end?

DMX fails to debut at No. 1 for first time
DMX finally found an adversary strong enough to keep him out of the No. 1 spot: the latest "Now That's What I Call Music" compilation. Now 22 edged X's Year of the Dog ... Again by only a few hundred copies, but it was enough to end the record run that saw his first five releases debut on top of the Billboard 200 albums chart. Now 22 sold approximately 127,000 units, while DMX's album sold just more than 126,000, according to numbers released by Soundscan. The sales total also is the lowest ever for a DMX debut. Not that it's any consolation, but Year of the Dog ... Again will bow at No. 1 on Billboard's R&B/hip-hop chart, giving X a sixth straight debut on top of that list.
