Nelly Furtado is number one on the UK chart

The singer ends Sandi Thom's reign at the top

Nelly Furtado has knocked Sandi Thom off the top of the UK chart with her single ‘Maneater’.

The track, which was Number Eight last week, shot seven places to end Sandi‘s one week reign in the top spot.

But the Scottish singer can take some consolation in the fact that her debut album ‘Smile It Confuses People’ shot straight to the top of the album chart.


Embrace‘s World Cup single ‘World At Your Feet’ is in at Number Three this week after a disappointing start had it at 38 last week.

Baddiel and Skinner must be pleased too after the re-release of their classic football anthem ‘3 Lions’ shot straight in at 10 while Tony Christie‘s own unofficial footy song has entered the Top 10 for the first time at eight.

Welsh four-piece The Automatic are in at four with their new single ‘Monster’ while Gnarls Barkley‘s ‘Crazy’ falls three places to five.

This week’s Top 10 singles are:

1. Nelly Furtado – ‘Maneater’


2. Sandi Thom – ‘I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker’

3. Embrace – ‘World At Your Feet’

4. The Automatic – ‘Monster’

5. Gnarls Barkley – ‘Crazy’

6. Infernal – ‘From Paris To Berlin’

7. Pink – ‘Who Knew’

8. Tony Christie – ‘(Is This The Way) To The World Cup’

9. Keane – ‘Is It Any Wonder’

10. Badiel/Skinner/Lightning Seeds – ‘3 Lions’

Elsewhere in the album chart The Feeling‘s album ‘Twelve Stops And Home’ is straight in at two while Primal Scream‘s ‘Riot City Blues’ went in at five.
