Lil’ is still big.

Cash Money/Universal Motown rap star Lil Wayne returns to the top of the HITS Album sales chart after two week with Tha Carter III, which recaptures #1, scoring 153k in sales.

That’s enough to leapfrog it past Capitol Music Group’s Coldplay album, which dips to #2 after two weeks at #1, with 150k in sales.

Disney’s Camp Rock continues strong at #3 with another 115k.

Interscope rap posse G-Unit is the top debut at #4 with T.O.S. (Terminate on Sight), which tallies 96k, followed by Columbia’s John Mayer and his CD/DVD live album Where the Light Is: Live in L.A., at #5 and 80k.

Capitol’s Now 28 leads the rest of the Top 10 at #6, trailed by Atlantic’s Kid Rock, the week’s top gainer at +31% (#12-7), LaFace/ZLG’s Usher (#8), Def Jam/IDJ’s Rihanna (#9) and Reprise’s Disturbed (#10).

Epic's Chicago emo-punkers Alkaline Trio (#12), Strange Music’s Tech N9ne (#14), Reprise’s My Chemical Romance (#20), Gotee’s Relient K (#23), Hollywood’s Vanessa Anne Hudgens (#25), Epic’s Los Lonely Boys (#26) and Asylum’s Jim Jones & Byrd Gang mixtape compilation (#32) round out the Top 50 newcomers.

Among the double-digit gainers are BNA/SBMG Nashville’s Kenny Chesney (#49-36, +20%) and Arista Nashville’s Alan Jackson (#50-40, +15%).

Hitting stores today and expecting to chart next week are DGC’s Beck, a deluxe edition of Maroon 5’s recent A&M/Octone album and Decca’s ABBA soundtrack to the Mamma Mia movie.
