  2. Shayne Ward - No Promises

Hot New Singles

  • #16 Jamie Foxx featuring Ludacris - Unpredictable <Listen>
  • #19 Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal <Listen>


Gnarls Barkley continues to hold a firm grip on the top of the chart even shutting X Factor winner Shayne Ward out of a second consecutive #1 hit single. It should be a battle for the top next week as Rihanna's "SOS" shows up in stores and should contend with Gnarls Barkley for the top.

Hot New Albums

  • #16 Hayley Westenra - Odyssey


Mike Skinner, aka the Streets, scores his second consecutive #1 album this time reflecting on the ups and downs of being famous. The relative dearth of top new albums leaves room for Jack Johnson and Corinne Bailey Rae to rise back up into the top 5.
