The Kings Of Leon do the double this week topping both the Singles and Album Charts as their fourth album release ‘Only By The Night’ storms straight in at No1 – their best debut position to date, the second fastest selling album of the year so far and the first artist to top both charts since Leona Lewis achieved the same feat nearly a year ago.
Their 2007 offering ‘Because Of The Times’ debuted at No2, 2004’s ‘Aha Shake Heartbreak’ debuted at No3 (although did take the top spot 4 months later) and their first album ‘Youth And Young Manhood’ entered the chart at No34. The Script head back up the Chart from last week’s No4 to No2 with their self-titled debut album while Rihanna’s ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ also does a u-turn, up to No3 from last week’s No5. The Pussycat Dolls have this week’s next new entry at No6 with their second album ‘Doll Domination’ – improving on their 2005 debut ‘PCD’ which entered the Chart at No42 and peaked at No7. The Kings Of Leon hold onto the No1 spot on the Singles Chart with ‘Sex On Fire’ for a second week with Katy Perry’s ‘I Kissed A Girl’ also unmoveable at No2. The Script climb back up to No3 from last week’s No5 with ‘The Man Who Can’t Be Moved’ while the Top 10 sees two new entries, both on download only: Kanye West at No5 with ‘Love Lockdown’ and Ne-Yo at No9 with ‘Miss Independent’.
