The dancing queen dethrones Dis tween


Ready for this? Meryl Streep sold more albums than Miley Cyrus last week.

The Oscar-winning actress appears on several songs in the ABBA-based musical "Mamma Mia!" whose soundtrack leapfrogs Cyrus and Sugarland to top the Billboard 200 for the first time after four weeks in the top 10.

The album follows "Juno" as the second movie soundtrack to hit the top spot this year. It's the first time in 10 years that two movie companions reached No. 1 for the first time during the first eight months of the year; "Titanic," "City of Angels" and "Armageddon" all topped the chart in 1998.

Elsewhere, New Orleans R&B singer Lloyd bows at No. 7 with his third album, "Lessons in Love," and former Trick Pony singer Heidi Newfield's solo debut "What Am I Waiting For" opens at No. 10. (partialdiff)
