The Australian band Rogue Traders makes a spectacular splash this week in the top 3. The band's lead vocalist Natalie Bassingthwaighte is a veteran actress on the soap opera <i>Neighbours</i>. It is the same show that gave us Kylie Minogue as a chart star almost 20 years ago. Rihanna has a strong download-only debut with "Unfaithful" which should insure a 3rd top 5 hit for her.
