Eminem's "MMLP2" has made its way back to the top slot of Billboard 200. Nielsen SoundScan reports that the Detroit rapper's latest studio effort has sold additional 120,000 copies, outselling last week's first placer Lady GaGa's "ARTPOP" which plunges to No. 8 with 46,000.

Earlier this month, the second installment of 2000's "The Marshall Mathers LP" debuted on the chart at No. 1 with 792,000 copies, the second-largest opening week this year. Last week, it fell to No. 2 when the Mother Monster's new set sold 258,000 copies in its first week.

At No. 2, Five Finger Death Punch's "The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell Volume 2" opened with 77,000. The album's predecessor, "The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell Volume 1", also debuted at No. 2 after being released earlier this year.

Pop compilation album "Now 48" stays at No. 3 with 63,000. The Robertsons' Christmas set "Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas" also manages to keep its position steady at No. 4 with 60,000.

The soundtrack to "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" bows at No. 5 with 55,000. Featuring songs from Coldplay, Christina Aguilera and Sia Furler among others, the album fails to beat the first "Hunger Games" soundtrack that boasted contributions from Taylor Swift and hit No. 1 with 175,000 in early 2012.

DAUGHTRY's "Baptized" album arrives at No. 6 with 55,000. It marks the band's fourth consecutive top 10 studio effort. Yo Gotti's "I Am" enters at No. 7 with 48,000.

Kelly Clarkson's "Wrapped in Red" falls from No. 6 to No. 9 with 44,000, while the 25th anniversary edition of Minneapolis radio station KTCZ's "Cities 97" rounds out the top 10. The new album that includes appearances from Passenger, Fun. and Phillip Phillips sells 40,000 copies in its first week.
