LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - Eminem and his cohorts in D12 have reclaimed the top spot on The Billboard 200. Third week sales of D12's "Devil's Night" declined 21%, yet the 174,000 copies it moved squeaked the title past last week's No. 1, Alicia Keys' "Songs in A Minor." Keys' set, which sold 173,700 copies, performed well enough in urban markets to best D12 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums tally, where "Songs" is No. 1 for a second straight week. Keys' single "Falling" continues its rise up the singles charts, rocketing 45-30 on The Billboard Hot 100, where it enjoyed the week's greatest gain in airplay. D12's "Purple Hills" also continues to perform well, holding at No. 2 on the Hot Rap Singles chart for the third straight week, behind Lil' Romeo's "My Way," which has had a lock on that chart's No. 1 spot for 10 weeks running. Lil' Romeo, the 11-year-old son of Master P debuts on The Billboard 200 with his self-titled debut at No. 6 and one better on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
