Amy Winehouse has secured a third posthumous week at Number One with her 2006 LP 'Back To Black'.

The late singer's second LP held off Kanye West and Jay-Z's collaboration album 'Watch The Throne' which entered at Number Three. Adele remains at Number Two with '21'.

There were two other new entries in the Top 40, with Randy Crawford's new compilation 'Best Of' entering at Number Seven and Trivium hitting Number 16 with their new LP 'In Waves'.

In the singles chart, dance duo Nero scored their first UK Number One with 'Promises' after Cher Lloyd's 'Swagger Jagger' fell to Number Three and JLS' 'She Makes Me Wanna' held firm at Number Two.

There were two high profile climbers in the Top Five with David Guetta's collaboration with Ludacris and Taio Cruz 'Little Bad Girl' going up two places to Number Four and Christina Perri rising a full 12 places to Number Five with her single 'Jar Of Hearts'.
