Chris Brown climbs back to No1 on the Singles Chart with ‘Forever’ after slipping to No2 last week, when he was deposed by Leanne Moore’s ‘On Wings’ – which crashes to No27 this week as local promotional activity dries up.
Rihanna’s ‘Take A Bow’ steps up to No2, ahead of Ne-Yo’s ‘Closer’ at No3, up from No5. Basshunter have this week’s highest new entry with downloads of ‘All I Ever Wanted’ at No4, the follow-up to ‘Now You’re Gone’ which spent 5 weeks at No1 earlier this year. Coldplay take a third week at No1 on the Album Chart this week with ‘Viva La Vida’, and climb to No2 in the 2008 year-to-date ranking (behind Amy Winehouse ‘Back To Black’) after just three weeks on release. Chris Brown climbs one place to No2 with ‘Exclusive’, swapping places with Duffy who drops to No3 with ‘Rockferry’. This week’s highest new entry is from My Chemical Romance, at No19 with ‘The Black Parade Is Dead’, a live CD/DVD set of ‘The Black Parade’ which debuted and peaked at No5 in October 2006.
