Lil Wayne has reclaimed the number one spot in the US album chart.

The rap star's Tha Carter III returned to the top of the Billboard Hot 200 after being pushed into second place for a fortnight by Coldplay's Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends.

Lil Wayne shipped 156,000 copies in the US this week, some 7,000 more than Coldplay to return to the top of the charts.

The Jonas Brothers' soundtrack to Disney film Camp Rock has remained in third place while T.O.S (Terminate on Sight), the new album by G-Unit, debuted at number four.

Where the Light Is: John Mayer Live in Los Angeles, the guitarist's third live album, entered the chart in fifth, while the Now 28 compilation held firm at number six.

Kid Rock's Rock N Roll Jesus climbed five places to seventh, thanks to the success of single All Summer Long while the top ten was rounded off by Usher, Rihanna and Disturbed.
