After a one-week absence, it’s all about Ashlee Simpson.

The 19-year-old younger sister of Jessica returns to the top of the charts with her Geffen debut, Autobiography, boasting a robust 283k (up 5%) in sales, good enough to edge last week’s champ, UTV/UME’s Now 16, by a little more than 3,000 in units sold.

RCA Nashville’s Jimmy Buffett (#3), LaFace/ZLG’s long-running soul star Usher and Epic/Sony Nashville’s country crossover phenom Gretchen Wilson (#5) round out the Top 5.

In an off week for new releases, Walt Disney RecordsPrincess Diaries 2 soundtrack is the week’s top chart newcomer at #43, with Island/IDJ’s Las Vegas dance-rockers The Killers entering at #46 and Atlantic/Atl G’s Shinedown in at #48.

Aside from Maroon 5, the only other double-digit gainer was WB’s Linkin Park, which moved 42-31, with a 15% boost, thanks to radio play on the new single, "Breaking the Habit."

Next week, look for a full slate of hot, new releases, including Wind-up’s Alter Bridge, Gangland/IDJ’s Shyne, Jive/ZLG’s Mobb Deep, Capitol R&B crooner Houston, TVT’s 213 rap super group, all of which are expected to score more than 100k in first-week sales.
