The Darkness enter at five with 'Love Is Only A Feeling', OutKast enter at seven with 'The Way You Move', Sugababes enter at eight with 'In The Middle' and Kanye West completes the barrage of top ten new entries at nine with 'Through The Wire'.
Further down the chart, The Delays enter at 21 with 'Nearer Than Heaven', Missy Elliot enters at 22 with 'I'm Really Hot', Divine Comedy enter at 25 with 'Come Home Billy Bird' and Travis touch down at 28 with 'Love Will Come Through'.
Returning to the album chart, Usher's 'Confessions' enters at the top as mentioned, while N.E.R.D's 'Fly Or Die' claims the second highest entry at four.
Eric Clapton's 'Me And MR Johnson' also manages a top ten entry at 10.
