Avril Lavigne's "Under My Skin" (Arista) secures a second week at No. 1 on European Top 100 Albums, while Mario Winans' "I Don't Know Wanna Know" featuring Enya and P.Diddy (Bad Boy/Universal) is the new leader on Eurochart Hot 100 Singles, with a 3-1 climb.

Despite falling from the top in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Spain and Austria, Lavigne's album spends a second week as Germany's bestseller.

Lavigne's second week as the pan-European album chart leader restricts the Corrs to a No. 2 debut with their first studio album in four years, "Borrowed Heaven" (Atlantic). The set sells 57,000 copies to debut at No. 2 in the United Kingdom, where its predecessor "In Blue" was an instant chart-topper in 2000. "Heaven" does start at No. 1 in the group's native Ireland, also arriving at No. 2 in Germany and Spain, No. 4 in Holland and No. 5 in France and Austria.

Breakthrough British rock act Keane moves back up 9-7 on the overall chart, after unseating Lavigne to regain the No. 1 berth at home with its debut set "Hopes and Fears" (Universal Island).

Italian superstar Zucchero's "Zu & Co" album (Polydor) has three-week progress of 13-11-9 on the aggregate listing, after climbing 2-1 in Austria and holding at No. 1 in Switzerland and Italy. The album includes collaborations with Sting, Sheryl Crow, Luciano Pavarotti, B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Tom Jones and others.

Winans' single debuts as expected at No. 1 in the United Kingdom, selling 61,000 units, and is climbing steadily in several other European markets, including 3-2 in Norway and Switzerland, 4-3 in Denmark and 7-5 in Belgium. It holds at No. 3 in Holland and enters at No. 4 in Ireland. The Eurochart's top new entry, at No. 10, is "Le Poulallier" (ULM) by five-piece musical parody group Le 6-9, which soars 57-2 in France.
