Challenging the group's singles supremacy on the new charts published yesterday (Sept. 24) was the Killers' "When You Were Young" (Mercury), which entered last week on download sales and climbed 5-2 after its physical release. U.K. R&B singer Jamelia's "Something About You" (Parlophone), which raced 28-10 last week, moved up again to No. 9, while Pink's "U & Ur Hand" (LaFace), which had a four-week history of 28-11-15-15, bounced back to hit the top 10 for the first time at No. 10.
New inside the top 20 were "Call on Me" (Virgin) by Janet Jackson and Nelly at No. 18 and Lil' Chris' "Checkin' It Out" (RCA) at No. 19.
Scissor Sisters' first, self-titled album arrived on the U.K. chart in February 2004 but didn't hit No. 1 until the following July. "Ta-Dah" opened at the top as "Costello Music" (Universal Island) by the Fratellis held at No. 2 and Justin Timberlake's "FutureSex/LoveSounds" (Jive) fell 1-3. The only other newcomer in the top 20 was by the man who co-wrote and performs on "I Don't Feel Like Dancin.'" Elton John's "The Captain and the Kid" (Mercury) arrived at No. 6 to become his 27th top 10 album in the United Kingdom.
"FutureSex/LoveSounds" zooms to No. 1 on the European Top 100 Albums chart and also spends a third week at No. 1 on Eurochart Hot 100 Singles with "SexyBack."
