In the U.S., the single has fallen to #25 on the U.S. Singles Sales chart, a drop of another ten slots from last week. Meanwhile, the "soundtrack" CD to Fox's American Juniors show, entitled Kids in America, has only managed to reach #166 on the U.S. Album Sales chart.

In Canada, "One Step Closer" moved ahead of Clay Aiken's "Bridge Over Troubled Water"/"This Is the Night" to claim third spot on the Canadian Singles Sales chart. And, while Kids in America isn't a hit north of the border either, at least it reached a respectable #36 on the Canadian Album Sales chart ... merely 130 places above its U.S. ranking.
