"Anastacia" (Epic) is starting a sixth week at No. 1 on European Top 100 Albums, while Usher has extended his reign over Eurochart Hot 100 Singles to eight weeks with "Yeah" (Arista).

Anastacia's album now has European shipments of two million units, according to the label, and is approaching double platinum status (600,000 shipments) in the United Kingdom. It continues at No. 1 in Germany, Holland and Switzerland and rises 5-2 in Spain. In Austria its down 1-2, where "Aufleben" by local favorite Rainhard Fendrich (Arista) debuts at the top. Anastacia's single "Left Outside Alone" slips 4-5 on the Eurochart.

Guns N' Roses' "Greatest Hits" (Geffen) edges back 3-2 overall, climbing 7-4 in Norway, 3-2 in Greece and returning 2-1 in both the United Kingdom and Ireland. Its eight-week sales tally in Britain is 562,000 units. Climbing 10-8 on Top 100 Albums, and 4-2 in the United Kingdom, is "Songs About Jane" by Maroon 5 (J). The band will return to Europe for a British tour in October; its current single "This Love" is No. 9 in its third week on the U.K. chart.

New at No. 10 on the composite album list is Reinhard Mey's "Nanga Parbat" (Capitol), which debuts at No. 2 (behind Anastacia) in Germany. It's the 23rd studio album by the veteran German singer-songwriter, a sequence dating back to 1968.

Another veteran German act, rock staple Scorpions, returns at No. 4 at home with "Unbreakable" (Ariola), prompting an overall debut at No. 13. The album, issued in most of Europe May 3, is due to release in the United States at the end of the month.

Michel Sardou's "Du Plaisir" (AZ Records) is new at No. 17 overall after No. 1 debuts in France and Belgium. The 57-year-old Parisian has been a popular artist in France since the 1960s.

The power of mainstream TV promotion is again underlined in the United Kingdom, where Warner Music's 14th Floor label reports sales of Damien Rice's "O" album up 316% in the first half of the current chart week following his performance on BBC1's "Friday Night with Jonathan Ross" last week.

The Usher single wins another European crown by climbing 3-1 in Norway, also continuing at No. 1 in Switzerland. That's enough to hold Eamon's "F**k It (I Don't Want You Back)" (Jive) at No. 2 on the Eurochart. "F**k It" moves 2-1 in Germany, holds at No. 1 in Holland and spends a fourth week at the top in the United Kingdom, becoming the longest-running chart-topper there since Black Eyed Peas' "Where Is The Love" (A&M) last October.

Christina Milian is the Eurochart's highest debutante with "Dip It Low" (Def Jam/Mercury) at No. 8. It enters at No. 2 in the United Kingdom, where Milian had consecutive No. 3 solo hits in 2002 with "AM To PM" and "When You Look At Me."
