Massive Attack invade albums count-down...
Russian teen would-be lesbian duo Tatu retain their stranglehold on the UK single chart remaining at number one today (February 16) with ‘All The Things She Said’.
Fame Academy runner-up Sinead Quinn scores the highest new entry going straight in at number two with ‘I Can’t Break Down’, pushing Justin Timberlake down to three.
Former All Saints sisters Appleton go in at number five tonight with ‘Don’t Worry’, edging Nicole’s beau Liam Gallagher and Oasis down to six with ‘Songbird’. The only other new entry on the top ten comes at eight for Blazin’ Squad with ‘Reminisce’.
Another made for TV loser, Sarah Whatmore – former entrant on Pop Idol – sees her debut single ‘Automatic’ just miss the top ten, coming in at 11. With little other movement on the top 20, the track is a rare new entry, ahead of LL Cool J at 18 with ‘Paradise’.
Veteran rockers Red Hot Chili Peppers miss out on the 20, entering at 22 with ‘Can’t Stop’, while death proves no barrier for Tupac as he continues to perform strongly from beyond the grave entering at 24 with ‘Thugz Mansion’. Idlewild enter at 28 with ‘A Modern Way Of Letting Go’.
NME favourites The Datsuns muster a top 33 record, entering with ‘Harmonic Generator’, ahead of Jody Lei, Sum 41 (‘The Hell Song’ – 35), Oakenfold and Polyphonic Spree ‘Light And Day’.
Anti-war figurehead 3-D will be smiling tonight as Massive Attack’s invasion of the album charts proves an explosive success – new album ‘100th Window’ blasts in at number one. There is little other movement on the top 10, with Norah Jones the only other new entry climbing from 22 to 10.
