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

-- Katy Perry: As the pop diva scores her first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with "Teenage Dream" we tip-toe through No. 11 through No. 200 to see what else is moving and shaking this week.

-- Sufjan Stevens: After his "All Delighted People" EP debuted last week off the strength of just one digital retailer (Bandcamp), it zips up the tally (rising from No. 48 to No. 27) with a 71% jump once it reached the rest of the digital universe. A physical version of the set isn't expected until later this year.

-- Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes: The largest jump on the Billboard 200 this week comes from this band's "Up From Below," which flies 61 rungs to No. 76 with 5,000 (up 57%). It posts a sizable gain courtesy of Amazon's MP3 store offering it as its daily deal on Aug. 29 for $2.99. It's up 100% in downloads.

-- Casting Crowns: After Family Christian sale priced the group's "The Altar and the Door" for $5, it comes charging back onto the chart at No. 84 (and at No. 1 on Pop Catalog Albums) with a 5,000 and a 544% gain. It's the band's second No. 1 on the latter list, following "Peace On Earth."

-- Vampire Weekend: A repeat of "Saturday Night Live" featuring the band (Aug. 21), as well as "Contra's" arrival in the eMusic store, helps lift the set with an overall 37% increase (up 67% in downloads). That's the second biggest leap on the list. (Also, perhaps Ann Kirsten Kennis has helped fuel the album's gain, too? She is the model whose photo appears on the cover of "Contra" who filed a $2 million misappropriation-of-image lawsuit against the band, its label XL Recordings and the picture's photographer, Tod Brody. Last week, blogs were buzzing about her interview with "Vanity Fair" regarding the lawsuit.

-- Lady Antebellum: Dropping 128 slots (the biggest fall on the tally this week) to No. 145 in its second week is the trio's "iTunes Sessions" EP, shifting 3,000 (down 81%). The plunge was expected, as these types of iTunes-exclusive sets usually experience a second-week tumble. And in this particular title's case, its first week was especially robust (18,000) thanks to very prominent iTunes Store promotion.

The Billboard Hot 100

-- Eminem: While the rapper loses his No. 1 standing on the Billboard 200, he remains perched atop the Billboard Hot 100 for a seventh frame with "Love the Way You Lie," featuring Rihanna. The song tops Radio Songs for a fourth week, improving to 159 million listener impressions (up 3%), according to Nielsen BDS, while downloads sales slip 12%, according to Nielsen SoundScan, though the track rebounds 3-2 on Digital Songs.

-- Katy Perry: She becomes the latest threat to end Eminem and Rihanna's stay at No. 1 as "Teenage Dream" takes both the Airplay and Digital Gainer awards with a jump from 3-2. A bump in download sales (259,000, up 24%) gives the singer her third chart-topper on Digital Songs, while an 11-7 bounce on Hot 100 Airplay (84.3 million, up 30%) ups her top 10 tally on that list to five.

-- Taio Cruz: "Dynamite" had looked like a serious contender to the Hot 100 throne, but the song takes a step back from 2-3 this week mainly due to download erosion (down 11% to 178,000). Airplay continues to increase though, with a 3% improvement to 131 million listener impressions, good for a No. 2 standing on Hot 100 Airplay.

-- Taylor Swift: "Mine" makes a quick return to the top 10 after a one-week break, rebounding 14-9. With radio play continuing to rise (18-12 on Radio Songs, up 20%), downloads increase for the first time since the track debuted three weeks ago (97,000, up 11%).

-- Lil Wayne: After a top 10 debut last week, the rapper slips 6-19 with "Right Above It," which is not surprising for a song that sold so strongly in its first week of release. Downloads dip 55% from 225,000 to 101,000, though with radio play jumping by 135% to 9.9 million listener impressions, the song could rebound on the Hot 100 in the coming weeks. "Right" debuts at No. 20 on Rap Airplay list.

-- Kid Cudi: He claims the chart's Hot Shot Debut at No. 22 with "Erase Me," featuring Kanye West. The preview single from Cudi's upcoming sophomore set, "Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager," due in late October, shifts 99,000 downloads.

-- Cee-Lo Green: The Gnarls Barkley vocalist opens at No. 96 with "F**k You!," the song that broke out on YouTube and has now reached radio and retail. With just a partial week of sales, the track, currently only available for purchase in explicit form, moves 21,000 downloads. Expect a notable jump on the Hot 100 next week.
