Nelly On Top
Nelly On Top
Nelly has topped the UK singles chart with his double A-side comeback.
Still sweating from his steamy performance with Christina Aguilera at the MTV Video Music Awards in Miami, the now very buff Nelly fended off strong competition from fellow new entries to bag the top spot with 'My Place/Flap Your Wings'.
Having to settle for second place at number two is Jojo with 'Leave (Get Out)', while Twista enters at three with 'Sunshine'.
Embrace make a return to the UK chart at seven with the Chris Martin-penned 'Gravity', followed by Pirates at eight with 'You Should Really Know'.
Outside the top ten, Paul Weller's version of 'Wishing On A Star' enters at 11, Darren Hayes' Popular' at 12, Armand Helden's 'My My My' at 15, Kanye West's 'Jesus Walks' at 16, The Killers' 'All These Things That I've Done' at 18 and Prodigy's comeback single 'Girls' at 19.
Slightly further down, The Thrills enter at 22 with 'Whatever Happened To Cory Haim' and Ultrabeat enter at 25 with 'Better Than Life'.
In the album chart, The Libertines enter at the top with their self-titled second album.
The second highest entry is Bjork's new outing 'Medulla', which enters at nine, while Blue Nile's 'High' enters at 10.
Further down the album stakes, new entries come from the late, great Ray Charles, Jill Scott, Papa Roach and Macy Gray.
