    When Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens from High School Musical 2 Sing, Teens Buy

    High School Musical 2 Combines Acting, Singing, and Dancing to make millions of dollars. The Movie was watched by over 17 million people on the weekend, but the music will go on throughout the year, until High School Musical 3 comes out.

    The soundtrack to Disney's "High School Musical 2" starts in the at No. 1 on The Billboard 200. The set sold 615,000 copies in the United States according to Nielsen SoundScan. Since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking data in 1991, only three other soundtracks have ever moved more than 615,000 in a week: Eminem's "8 Mile," "Titanic" and "The Bodyguard."

    The first "High School Musical" soundtrack topped the chart numerous times last year and has sold 4.1 million copies to date. The Disney Channel's premiere of "High School Musical 2" on Aug. 17 scored 17.24 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research, making it the most-watched basic cable telecast of all time.

    "I think we definitely knew it was going to do well, just because the first one did so well and there were so many fans," Corbin Bleu, who plays amiable jock Chad Danforth, told Billboard.com in a recent interview. "We knew all the people that enjoyed the first movie were gonna want to see the second movie. [But] we didn't know it was gonna become as much of a phenomenon."

    A new episode of "Hannah Montana" aired directly after "High School Musical 2," helping Miley Cyrus' Disney double-disc set "Hannah Montana 2 (Soundtrack)/Meet Miley Cyrus" rise 4-2 with 83,000, a 10% increase in sales.
