The No. 1 artists on both pan-European sales charts remain in place, with Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Live In Hyde Park" (Warner Bros.) leading Top 100 Albums for a second week, while O-Zone's "Dragostea Din Tei" (Media Services/Time/Vale) tops Eurochart Hot 100 Singles for the ninth time.
The Chili Peppers' album moves 2-1 in Austria, 13-3 in Belgium, and continues at No. 1 in the United Kingdom, where its two-week sales tally is 105,000 units. However, it falls 1-2 in Switzerland, 3-4 in Italy, 4-5 in Holland and 5-6 in France.
The top three on European Top 100 Albums are unchanged, with "Anastacia" (Epic) at No. 2 and Avril Lavigne's "Under My Skin" (Arista) at No. 3. Both artists enjoy major Eurochart action. Anastacia's "Sick and Tired" races 17-2 after a No. 4 start in the United Kingdom. “Sick and Tired” climbs 3-2 in Switzerland, 6-3 in Germany and 7-5 in Italy and holds at No. 3 in Spain. Lavigne's "My Happy Ending" soars 92-12 overall after arriving at No. 5 in the United Kingdom. Its predecessor "Don't Tell Me" peaked at No. 8 on the Eurochart.
The one new title in the Top 10 of the pan-European album chart is "Tanzen, Lachen, Party Machen" (Edel) by female pop duo Die Lollipops. It's up 9-3 in Germany and 7-4 in Austria, for a 36-10 climb overall. Also moving well, with a 28-14 climb overall, is "3" (Mercury) by Calogero, which climbs 4-1 in France and holds at No. 2 in Belgium. It's the third album by the 32-year-old French star, who has career album sales of one million, according to the label. Calogero begins an extensive tour of France and Belgium Sept. 21.
D-12's "D-12 World" (Interscope) climbs 27-16 on Top 100 Albums, after a 22-12 rebound in its 15th week on the British chart. That's prompted by the success of the single "How Come," which is No. 6 in the United Kingdom this week and No. 7 on the Eurochart. "Mamae Eu Quero" (Heban Music) by female Brazilian three-piece T-Rio is up 10-6 on the aggregate singles chart, after moving 3-2 in France and 11-5 in Belgium.
New to the Eurochart Top 10 is the funk-pop single "Space Taxi" (Rare) by Stefan Raab featuring Spucky, Kork and Schrotty. It’s up 14-10 overall and 3-2 in Germany. Swedish singer Ana Johnsson climbs 50-18 on Hot 100 Singles with "We Are" (Epic) after a No. 8 start in the United Kingdom. It's the lead single from Columbia's "Spider-Man 2" soundtrack.
