For the seventh week, "Anastacia" (Epic) is No. 1 on European Top 100 Albums, as it continues to top charts in Germany and Switzerland. However, there's a new favorite on Eurochart Hot 100 Singles, where Eamon's "F**k It (I Don't Want You Back)" (Jive) moves up 2-1.
The Anastacia album loses pole position in Holland and Belgium, but climbs 9-4 in Finland and still enjoys top three status in the United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal and Austria. The single "Left Outside Alone" holds at No. 5 on the Eurochart, with the follow-up "Sick and Tired" set for European release July 19.
Norah Jones' "Feels Like Home" (Blue Note/Parlophone), up 3-2 on Top 100 Albums, changes places with Guns N' Roses' "Greatest Hits" (Geffen). Jones' album is back up 2-1 in Holland, 3-2 in Germany and Austria, 6-3 in Switzerland and 12-10 in Italy. Its multi-platinum predecessor "Come Away With Me" makes another surge in Austria, 12-5. Her European tour continues on May 29 with the first of three shows at the Palais de Congres in Paris.
The highest new entries on Top 100 Albums arrive in the top two in the United Kingdom. English rock outfit Keane bows at No. 1 there and No. 7 overall with its debut set "Hopes and Fears" (Universal Island), on U.K. sales of 155,000. It's also new at No. 3 in Ireland.
The Streets, aka Birmingham, England-born rapper Mike Skinner, comes in at No. 2 in Britain and No. 8 on the overall survey with its sophomore album "A Grand Don't Come For Free" (Locked On/679 Recordings). The follow-up to 2002's Mercury Music Prize-nominated "Original Pirate Material," it's also new at No. 1 in Ireland and No. 5 in Norway.
Mario Winans' "Hurt No More" album (Bad Boy/Universal) soars 78-9 overall after a 26-6 climb in the United Kingdom and a No. 6 debut in Germany. The single "I Don't Wanna Know," featuring P.Diddy and an Enya sample, improves 6-4 on the Eurochart. The single is No. 2 in Germany, No. 5 in Norway and Denmark and No. 6 in France.
While Eamon's single completes its climb to the top of the Eurochart, now standing at No. 1 in Germany, Austria, Belgium and Ireland, its "answer record" replaces it as Britain's bestseller. Frankee's "F.U.R.B." ("F.U. Right
Back"), released in the United Kingdom by the consistently successful indie dance label All Around The World, sells 79,000 copies there for a No. 7 Eurochart debut. "F.U.R.B." also starts at No. 4 in Ireland. All Around The World is distributed by AMD (Absolute Marketing & Distribution/Universal).
Finally, former Smiths frontman Morrissey makes his best-ever debut on the U.K. singles chart at No. 3 with "Irish Blood, English Heart" (Attack/Sanctuary), good for a No. 11 entry to the Eurochart.
