Five Number Ones in Five Weeks

25/Feb/2005

The fast turnaround at the top of the Singles Chart continues this week, with Nelly & Tim McGraw debuting at No1 with 'Over And Over'.


It's Nelly's second Irish No1 single, after 'Dilemma' (featuring Kelly Rowland) spent 3 weeks at the top in October 2002. Jennifer Lopez drops one place to No2 with 'Get Right', ahead of Brian & Delta's 'Almost Here', down one place to No3. Girls Aloud have the next new entry at No6 with 'Wake Me Up', maintaining their extraordinary hit-rate: 8 singles released in just over 2 years, all of which have debuted in the Top 10. Newcomer Akon completes the trio of new entries in this week's Top 10 - in at No10 with 'Locked Up'. The Killers' 'Hot Fuss' continues to see off all contenders in the Albums Chart, making it six consecutive weeks at No1 this week. The Doves have this week's highest new entry at No2 with their third studio album 'Some Cities', nearly 3 years after 'The Last Broadcast' debuted in the same position. Bloc Party follow closely at No3 with their critically-acclaimed debut album 'Silent Alarm', ahead of Green Day who drop 2 places to No4 with 'American Idiot'.
