A pop megastar and hip-hop icon faced off on the charts this week, but only one came out on top.

Lil Wayne’s album I Am Not a Human Being II enters at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, selling 217,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The project features the hit single “Love Me,” plus collaborations with 2 Chainz, Nicki Minaj, and Juicy J.

The first I Am Not a Human Being was released in September 2010 while Weezy was in jail, but still opened at No. 2 with first-week digital sales of 110,000 downloads. Following its physical release in October, the album sold 125,000 copies and jumped to No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

The Young Money rapper’s previous album, Tha Carter IV, opened at No. 1 in September 2011 with sales of 964,000 copies.

But Weezy was no match for Justin Timberlake, whose 20/20 Experience holds at No. 1, selling an additional 318,000 copies in his second week. The album has sold a combined 1.29 million in only two weeks, becoming the best-selling album this year.
