A quick look at the most notable jumps and drops on this week's Billboard 200 albums and Hot 100 singles charts.

The Billboard 200:

-- Linkin Park: The rock band beat out R&B singer Trey Songz for the No. 1 slot on the Billboard 200 albums chart this week as "A Thousand Suns" started with 241,000 -- about 1,000 copies more than Songz's "Passion, Pain & Pleasure" at No. 2. Those two albums were the biggest of the six new entries in the top 10 this week. Outside that region, let's take a look at some of the biggest movers and shakers.

-- Sara Bareilles: Her "Kaleidoscope Heart" has the dishonor of being the second album to fall from a No. 1 debut straight out of the top 10 this year. B.o.B's "The Adventures of Bobby Ray" was the other, which fell to No. 12 on May 22.

-- Florence and the Machine: As predicted last week, the Sept. 12 MTV Video Music Awards goosed sales both on last week's chart and this week's. The biggest gain for a VMA participant goes to Florence and the Machine's "Lungs" album, which spikes with a 165% gain (moving 44-14) and earns its best sales week: 21,000.

-- Thirty Seconds to Mars: Vaulting 62 rungs to No. 83 -- the biggest positional jump on the chart -- the band's "This Is War" clearly benefits from their win for best rock video on the Sept. 12 MTV Video Music Awards. The album shifts 6,000 (up 74%). The song that won them the VMA trophy, "Kings & Queens," re-enters Digital Songs at No. 37 with 41,000 (up 152%). It previously only spent one week on the tally, nearly a year ago, when it debuted and peaked at No. 69.

-- The xx: The alternative act's self-titled album was awarded the prestigious Barclaycard Mercury Prize on Sept. 7 and it has been zipping up the tally ever since. Last week it rallied 192-152 and this week, after an interview on NPR's "All Things Considered," it zooms 152-114 with 4,000 (up 38%).

-- Robyn: Yikes. After earning her highest charting album ever last week with "Body Talk Pt. 2" (EP) arriving at No. 41, the set collapses 159 rungs to No. 200.

The Billboard Hot 100:

-- Bruno Mars:the singer takes his first charting single as a lead artist to No. 1 as "Just the Way You Are" jumps 3-1. The title is Mars' second song to reach the summit, however, as he was a featured vocalist on B.o.B's "Nothin' on You" in May. "Just The Way You Are" claims the Airplay Gainer award for a second consecutive week with an improvement of 18.9 million listener impressions to 110.2 million, according to Nielsen BDS. On Hot Digital Songs, the track drops from 1-2 with 194,000 (down 7%), according to Nielsen SoundScan.

-- Rihanna: Replacing Mars atop Hot Digital Songs is Rihanna with "Only Girl (In The World)," which shifts 249,000 downloads in its first week of release. The title is her eighth No. 1 on that chart and her sixth to debut at the top, the most in each category by any artist since the list launched in 2005. Eminem ranks second for most overall No. 1s in that span with six. On the Hot 100, Rihanna's track soars 75-3, while making a sparkling 42-18 move on Hot 100 Airplay with a 12.6 million impressions.

-- Far*East Movement: Act takes its first charting single into the top 10 as "Like a G6," featuring Cataracs & Dev, soars16-10. The title also enters the top 10 on Hot Digital Songs (12-7), selling 137,000 downloads (up 48%). On Hot 100 Airplay, "G6" posts the chart's second largest gain (12.9 million impressions, up 45%) as it moves 45-20.

-- MTV VMAs: Performances on the MTV Video Music Awards spur download spikes and resulting big jumps for Florence and the Machine, Drake and Linkin Park. "Dog Days Are Over" by Florence and The Machine claims the Digital Gainer award (96,000, up 257%) and jumps 52-12 on Hot Digital Songs and 93-21 on the Hot 100. Downloads for Drake's "Fancy" improve by 111% to 44,000 sending it 49-25 on the Hot 100, while Linkin Park reaches a new chart peak (73-27) with a digital spike of 195% (73,000). The latter jump can also be attributed to the release of the band's top-charting new album.

-- Kings of Leon: Rock band previews its upcoming "Come Around Sundown" album, due Oct. 19, with "Radioactive," which is the Hot 100's Hot Shot Debut at No 37. The song, which also soars into the top 10 on Alternative Songs (16-8) and Rock Songs (19-10) shifts 59,000 downloads in its first week at retail.

-- Gyptian: Reggae vocalist re-enters the Hot 100 at No. 92 with "Hold You (Hold Yuh)." Airplay at four New York radio stations (Z100, Now 92.3, Hot 97 and Power 105) accounts for 63% of the title's 17.7 million listener impressions, leading to the market making up 30% of the 6,000 downloads purchased during the week. The track returns to the No. 1 spot on Reggae Digital Songs for an 11th cumulative week at the summit.
