US rapper Lil' Wayne has returned to the top of the US Billboard album chart with 'Tha Carter III'.
The rapper's sixth album has exchanged places with Coldplay's 'Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends', which falls to number two. There was a consolation for Coldplay, however, as the band’s fourth album went platinum in its third week.
'Tha Carter III' sold 156,000 copies in the last seven days, according to statistics from Neilson Soundscan. The album, which sold over a million copies in its first week last month, has now shifted more than 1.68million units in four weeks.
As previously reported on Coldplaying.com, Coldplay are currently spending their fourth week on top of the album chart in the UK.
Coldplay's latest effort continues to sizzle on the Canadian album charts. "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friend" was locked in at No. 1 for a third straight week, selling 20,000 copies, according to figures compiled by Nielsen SoundScan. It has now racked up a grand total of 145,000 in sales since its release.
Coldplay's new album is number 1 for the third week in France with 107,561 albums sold so far. [thanks Chavi]
