Mamma Mia! Hits The Top

The MAMMA MIA! movie soundtrack has hit the top of the U.S. album charts, five weeks after its release.
The album of ABBA songs, crooned by castmates Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan and Julie Walters, shifted 130,000 copies in America last week to top the new Billboard 200 countdown.
It's the second soundtrack to hit the top of the charts this year (08) - the Juno album claimed the number one spot in January (08).
Ironically, ABBA themselves never had a top 10 album on the Billboard 200.
Meanwhile, former chart-toppers Miley Cyrus and Sugarland make up the remainder of the top three with Cyrus' Breakout staying put at two and the country duo's Love On The Inside dropping two places to three.
R+B star Lloyd claims the highest debut - his new album Lessons in Love enters the new chart at number seven.
