Manu Chao, who in 2001 became the first French artist ever to top European Top 100 Albums with "Proxima Estacion: Esperanza," repeats the feat with his first studio set since then, "La Radiolina" (Because).

Chao's fourth studio album enters in pole position after starting at No. 1 in Spain and Switzerland. Chao is beaten to the top in France by fellow superstar Vanessa Paradis' "Divinidylle" (Universal), but opens at No. 2 there and in Italy, No. 4 in Sweden and No. 5 in Germany. "Radiolina" also climbs 12-2 and 16-3 in the Belgian regions of Wallony and Flanders respectively. In the United Kingdom, the album is released next Monday.

That ends Mika's six-week pan-European reign with "Life In Cartoon Motion" (Casablanca/Universal Island), which dips to No. 3 overall, below Amy Winehous's "Back To Black" (Universal Island). "Black" holds at No. 2 on Top 100 Albums and in the United Kingdom, and climbs 8-5 in Flanders.

Rihanna's "Good Girl Gone Bad" (SRP/Def Jam) starts a third week at No. 4 on the pan-European album chart and edges up 4-3 in Poland. British rock band Hard-Fi makes a No. 5 start with its sophomore set "Once Upon A Time In The West" (Necessary/Atlantic). It sells 54,000 to debut at No. 1 in the United Kingdom, where its 2005 predecessor "Stars of CCTV" took 28 weeks to reach the summit and now has sales of just over 750,000. "West" also opens at No. 3 in Ireland.

There's a new name on the pan-European album top ten as German rapper Bushido's "7" (Ersguterju) arrives at No. 6. That's after starting at No. 1 in Germany and No. 2 in Austria and Switzerland. The album, which includes the current German top ten single "Alles Verloren," is Bushido's seventh in a recording career that began in 1998. The artist takes his name from a Japanese word meaning "way of the warrior," which originates from the Samurai moral code.

"Timbaland Presents Shock Value" (Interscope) dips 5-7 on Top 100 Albums, despite a third week at No. 1 in Ireland, while Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals' "Lifeline" (Virgin) falls 6-8 in its second week although it leads the way again in Italy.

Elvis Presley's "The King" compilation (RCA) falls more sharply, 3-9 on the composite chart, having dipped 4-10 in the United Kingdom and dropped 1-3 in Austria. Also appearing in the pan-European top ten for the first time is German singer Annett Louisan, whose "Das Optimale Leben" (105 Music) is in at No. 10. After top three successes in Germany with both her 2004 debut "Bohème" and the 2005 follow-up "Unausgesprochen," Louisan debuts at No. 2 there this time, behind Bushido.

On Eurochart Hot 100 Singles, Timbaland's "The Way I Are" (Interscope) featuring DOE and Keri Hilson leads the way for a fourth week. It loses top berth in Norway to Fergie's "Big Girls Don't Cry" (will.i.am/A&M/Interscope) but enjoys a ninth week at No. 1 in Denmark.

In an unchanged pan-European top three, James Blunt's "1973" (Atlantic) is runner-up for a second week, rising 2-1 in Austria, 10-4 in the United Kingdom and 28-5 in Ireland. The track debuts at No. 2 in Italy, holds at No. 2 in Germany and sits at No. 1 in Switzerland for a third week.

Sean Kingston's "Beautiful Girls" (Beluga Heights/Epic) is No. 3 on the Eurochart again, topping the U.K. chart for a second week, with total sales of 124,000. "Girls" is also No. 1 in Ireland a second week and climbs 3-2 in Sweden.
