So Solid Crew top of the pops
So Solid Crew's Neutrino was shot in May
Rap and garage collective the So Solid Crew have notched up their first number one single in the UK charts with their song 21 Seconds.

The title of the single refers to the amount of time each of the 23 artists, which include Oxide and Neutrino, contributes to the track.

Neutrino, who, along with Oxide, had a number one in May 2000 with Bound 4 Da Reload, hit the headlines earlier this year when he was shot in the leg outside a London nightclub.

The third highest chart entry is Ante Up by MOP featuring Busta Rhymes at number seven.

Other new entries include Missy Elliot with One Minute Man at number 10 and Raven Maize with The Real Life at number 12.

Radiohead's Knives Out, taken from their Mercury-nominated album Amnesiac, entered at number 13.


The late Michael Hutchence is once more in the charts, nearly four years after his mysterious death.
