The Black Keys have beaten Michael Jackson to the top of the albums chart to pick up their first number one.

The duo's "Turn Blue" sold just 7,000 more copies than the King of Pop's posthumous "Xscape" to rocket to the top of the Billboard 200 on Wednesday -- but the first-week sales were down 60,000 from the group's 2011 release "El Camino," which debuted at two.

Meanwhile, Jackson's "Xscape" is the late pop legend's 10th top 10 album.

Last week's number one, the "Now That's What I Call Music 50" compilation, falls to three on the new countdown, while the "Frozen" soundtrack slides to four and Rascal Flatts score their ninth top 10 album by debuting "Rewind" at five.

And it's a good week for Dolly Parton - her "Blue Smoke" enters the chart at number six, becoming her highest charting solo album ever.
