After being temporarily knocked out of the #1 spot by Lady Gaga's ARTPOP, Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is back on top of the Billboard album chart.

ARTPOP, meanwhile, has slipped to #8, on a sales decrease of 82%. As Billboard notes, it's the third album this year to debut at #1 and then experience a sales decline of 80% or more: the others were Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience -- 2 of 2, and Kanye West's Yeezus .

Meanwhile, the Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack, featuring tracks from Lorde , Christina Aguilera , Coldplay , The Lumineers and others, debuts at #5.  The first Hunger Games soundtrack entered the chart at #1 in 2013, but then again, that disc featured two songs by Taylor Swift .

Daughtry's new album Baptized enters the chart at #6.  It's the band's fourth straight top-10 album.

Looking ahead to next week, One Direction' s new album, Midnight Memories , is expected to sell around 500,000 copies in its first week, perhaps more, sources tell Billboard .  That will likely ensure the British boy band its third-straight #1 album, following Up All Night and Take Me Home . Those both reached #1 in 2012.
