"A Little Less Conversation" by Elvis Vs. JXL, the remix of Presley's 1968 track by Dutch DJ Tom Holkenberg, secured a second week at No. 1 in the U.K. yesterday (June 23). The achievement comes in the week of the 45th anniversary of the King's first British chart-topper, "All Shook Up," which hit No. 1 on the survey dated June 28, 1957. "Conversation" also prevented Oasis from another No. 1 hit, as "Stop Crying Your Heart Out" (Big Brother) -- the second single from scoring the band's new "Heathen Chemistry" album (out next week) -- had to make do with a No. 2 debut.

Christina Milian's "When You Look at Me" (Def Soul/Mercury), entered at No. 3, the same position achieved by its predecessor, "AM to PM." Nelly's new Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper, "Hot in Herre" (Universal/Island) landed at No. 4 on the U.K. chart. British female R&B trio Mis-teeq entered at No. 7 with the double-sided "Roll On" and a cover of Montell Jordan's "This Is How We Do It" (Inferno/Telstar), giving the fifth straight top-10 hit

Eminem's "The Eminem Show" (Interscope/Polydor" is into a fourth week atop the British album chart, and a third on Music & Media's pan-European Top 100 Albums survey. His "Without Me" also tops the Eurochart Hot 100 Singles chart for a fourth week. English vocalist Sophie Ellis Bextor's success with "Get Over You"/"Move This Mountain" (Polydor) helped her debut album "Read My Lips" race back up the U.K. chart from No. 50 to a new peak of No. 2.

The U.K. album top-10 had good news for two U.S. rock heavyweights, with Papa Roach's "lovehatetragedy" (DreamWorks) new at No. 4 and New Found Glory living up to its name with its first major British chart action, as "Sticks and Stones" (MCA) arrived at No. 10.
