Adele may have finally met her match. The British diva was knocked out of the top spot on the Billboard album chart this week by Eminem and Royce Da 5’9″, the rap duo known as Bad Meets Evil, whose ‘Hell: The Sequel‘ rises to No. 1.

‘Hell,’ which features the Bruno Mars collaboration ‘Lighters‘ and the Lady Gaga diss ‘A Kiss,’ tops the chart with 171,000 copies sold. It’s Eminem’s ninth chart-topping album, while it marks the first time Royce has ever been inside the Top 100. Earlier this month, Bad Meets Evil performed some of the new songs during Eminem’s Bonnaroo set.

Adele’s ’21’ drops to No. 3 after 10  non-consecutive weeks at the top. Gaga’s ‘Born This Way,’ which supplanted Adele at No. 1 for two weeks before dropping back, comes in at No. 4.

The surprise on the chart is 11-year-old Jackie Evancho, the former ‘America’s Got Talent’ contestant who debuts at No. 2 with ‘Dream With Me.’ Other newcomers this week include Owl City‘s ‘All Things Bright and Beautiful,’ which debuts at No. 6, and Barry Manilow’s ‘15 Minutes,’ which enters at No. 7.
