Irish pop band Boyzone's "Brother" (Polydor/Universal) returned to the top of the U.K. album chart yesterday, as Lady Gaga's "Telephone" (Interscope/Universal), featuring Beyoncé, started a second week atop the singles survey.
The Boyzone album, dedicated to their late former colleague Stephen Gately, entered at No. 1 two weeks ago before dipping to No. 3, but was revitalized by the Mar. 21 screening of the group's tribute show to Gately on ITV.
It's "as you were" on Billboard's pan-European charts this week, as Amy Winehouse secures a second consecutive and ninth aggregate week at the helm of European Top 100 Albums with "Back To Black" (Universal Island) while "Apologize" (Mosley/ Blackground/Interscope) by Timbaland presents One Republic resumes its supremacy on Eurochart Hot 100 Singles -- its 15th week as a chart-topper.
Amy Winehouse's two-CD, deluxe edition of her "Back to Black" album rose 3-1 yesterday to top the U.K. album chart for the first time. In a singles top 10 featuring almost no changes from last week, Duffy's "Mercy" (A&M/Universal) started a third week as the U.K.'s No. 1 song yesterday.
