X&Y STILL EQUALS ONE

Coldplay still on top of albums and 2pac ft Elton at number one on singles...

It’s as you were at the top of the UK charts today (July 3) as 2PAC FT ELTON JOHN remains at number one on the single countdown while Coldplay remain immovable at the summit of the album chart.

Only Charlotte Church makes a dent on the singles, entering at two with ‘Crazy Chick’ while Kaiser Chiefs make the biggest move on the album, rushing back into the top 10 at seven with ‘Employment’.

Backstreet Boys have little reason to celebrate as their big comeback single ‘Incomplete’ stutters in at eight.

A little further back, R&B riser Mario misses the 10, entering at 11 with ‘Here I Go Again’. There are no other new entries on the top 20.

Faders go in at 21 with ‘Jump’ while Tears see ‘Lovers’ enter at 24.

Feeder, Alkaline Trio, Soulwax and Royksopp score the other new Top 40 debuts.
