As it continues to outsell all competition in Germany, Holland, Belgium, Austria and Switzerland, Anastacia's self-titled Epic set snags a fifth week at No. 1 on European Top 100 Albums. It's also up 6-4 in Ireland, although the single "Left Outside Alone" dips 2-4 on Eurochart Hot 100 Singles. Usher's "Yeah" (Arista) tops that survey for a seventh straight week.
D12's "D12 World" (Interscope) is Anastacia's new rival for the pan-European crown, entering at No. 2 overall, while Guns N' Roses' "Greatest Hits" (Geffen) is pushed down 2-3 on the aggregate chart. "D12 World" is new at No. 1 in the United Kingdom with opening sales of 76,000 units. It also debuts at No. 1 in Ireland, No. 2 in Germany, No. 5 in Norway and Austria and No. 9 in France. Its single "My Band" holds at No. 3 on the Eurochart.
Diana Krall's "The Girl in the Other Room" (Verve), which two weeks ago soared 40-4 on Top 100 Albums before slipping back one spot, shifts up one place again this week. "Girl" holds at No. 1 in Portugal and climbs 3-1 in Poland. It's also up 3-2 in France and 5-3 in Austria.
Agnetha Faltskog's "My Colouring Book" (Metronome/WEA) is the big climber on the overall album chart, improving 28-9 after debuts of No. 1 in Sweden, No. 5 in Finland and No. 6 in Germany. The former Abba vocalist's first solo set since 1988's "I Stand Alone" was released earlier in April in some European territories. It falls 12-25 in its second chart week in the United Kingdom, where it's certified silver for 60,000 shipments.
Hard rock-rap artist Sido's "Maske" (Aggro Berlin/Groove Attack) enters Top 100 Albums at No. 12, thanks to a No. 3 debut in Germany. Elsewhere, Katie Melua's U.K. million-seller "Call Off the Search" (Dramatico) is beginning to make inroads elsewhere: it climbs 8-3 in Norway, helping a 19-13 climb overall. "Search" marks six months on the U.K. albums chart this week.
Eamon's "F**k It (I Don't Want You Back)" (Jive) is challenging Usher's Eurochart supremacy, moving 4-2 as it spends a third week at No. 1 in the United Kingdom, with sales in that period of 332,000. It also moves 2-1 in Norway, Denmark and Belgium, and climbs 5-2 in Germany. In Holland, "F**k It" spends a second week at No. 1.
Mario Winans' major U.S. hit "I Don't Wanna Know," featuring Enya and P.Diddy (Bad Boy/Universal), races 16-5 on the Eurochart. It's not released until May 31 in the United Kingdom, but already debuts at No. 1 in Germany.
