Coldplay holds off Lil Wayne

Empty

Look familiar? For the first time in six months, the top three albums defend their spots on the Billboard 200.

Coldplay fends off Lil Wayne in the clash of the midyear titans, while the Jonas Brothers-fueled "Camp Rock" soundtrack continues to set tweens' iPods aflutter, posting a pint-sized 10% sales decline in its sophomore frame.

Veteran headbangers Motley Crue are back with "Saints of Los Angeles." It's the band's best sales week in 16 years and its highest chart position since "Generation Swine" bowed at No. 4 in 1997.

Another veteran crew blasts in next as Memphis rap act Three 6 Mafia lands its fifth top-10 with "Last 2 Walk." And Florida rock band Shinedown posts its best sales week and chart showing with "The Sound of Madness." (partialdiff)
