    As expected, the Jonas Brothers score their first No. 1 album on The Billboard 200 this week with "A Little Bit Longer." The Hollywood effort bows with 517,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan, the third biggest sales frame this year behind Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter III" (1,006,000) and Coldplay's "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends" (721,000).

    The trio also scores the rare feat of having two albums simultaneously in the upper-most echelon of the chart, as their self-titled sophomore set rises 11-10 with 31,000 (-4%) in its 54th chart week. It's the first time a group has scored two concurrent top 10 albums since 'N Sync on the chart dated Jan. 2, 1999, with "Home for Christmas" at No. 10 and "'N Sync" at No. 2.

    But that's not all. The soundtrack to the Disney film "Camp Rock," which stars -- you guessed it -- the Jonas Brothers, stays put at No. 8 for a second week with 50,000 (+6%).

    This week, Nos. 1-7 have all spent time in the penthouse on the big chart, a first since Billboard began publishing its all-encompassing pop albums chart in 1963. Last week's chart-topper, the Decca soundtrack to "Mamma Mia!," slides to No. 2 with 110,000 (-16%), as Kid Rock's "Rock N Roll Jesus" (Atlantic) experiences a 12% sales surge to 101,000, climbing 4-3. Another Hollywood effort, Miley Cyrus' "Breakout," slips 2-4 with a 17% sales decline to 85,000.

    The Jonas Brothers' "A Little Bit Longer" saw a staggering sales drop -- 72% -- in its second week but still managed to hold on to the No. 1 slot. Hollywood Records release sold 147,000 copies in the week ended Sunday, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It sold 672,000 in its first 12 days of release.
    the Cheetah Girls' telepic soundtrack "One World" (Hollywood) sold 34,000 to swing in at No. 13.
