By Christopher Rocchio, 12/10/2009 

Allison Iraheta's debut album "Just Like You" dropped at No. 35 on the Billboard 200 U.S. album sales chart after selling 32,000 copies during its initial week of release, according to Nielsen Soundscan data for the week ending December 6.

The American Idol eighth-season fourth-place finisher -- who signed a recording contract with 19 Recordings/Jive Records in June -- had the third-highest debut of the week behind R. Kelly's "Untitled" (114,000) and the Alvin & the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel soundtrack (39,000).

Iraheta was the third Idol eighth-season alum to have a debut album drop in the last three weeks -- following winner Kris Allen and runner-up Adam Lambert.

Lambert's debut album "For Your Entertainment" dropped at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 U.S. album sales chart after selling 198,000 copies during its initial week of release last week.

It moved roughly 51,000 copies in its second sales week and currently sits at No. 35 on the Billboard 200.

Allen's debut album dropped at No. 11 on the Billboard 200 album sales chart after selling only 80,000 copies during its initial week of release late last month -- representing the lowest debut sales ever for an Idol winner.

It currently sits at No. 52 on the Billboard 200.

Britain's Got Talent runner-up Susan Boyle's debut album "I Dreamed a Dream" claimed the top spot on the Billboard 200 for a second consecutive week -- moving 527,000 copies after it sold 701,000 copies in its first week.
