Nelly and Kelly grab UK number one
Will Young
Will Young has hung on to the album number one
Nelly's duet with Kelly Rowland has hit the top of Britain's singles charts - giving the rapper his first UK number one.

Dilemma entered the charts at number one, pushing Spanish summer sound The Ketchup Song (Asereje) down to number two.

UK singles charts
1. Nelly feat. Kelly Rowland - From Now On
2. Las Ketchup - The Ketchup Song
3. Big Brovaz - Nu Flow
4. Avril Lavigne - Complicated
5. Samantha Mumba - I'm Right Here
6. Manic Street Preachers - By The Grace Of God
7. LL Cool J - Luv U Better

10. Will Young & Gareth Gates - Long And Winding Road
UK act Big Brovaz have also charted high, with their first single Nu Flow entering at number three.

On the album charts, Will Young has held on to the top spot with From Now On - part of an unchanged top four.

Nelly was born in Texas, and had a surprise album hit in the US with his first release, Country Grammar, in 2000.

It entered the Billboard album chart at number three before climbing to the top and spending five weeks there.

Dilemma sees him duet with Destiny's Child's Kelly Rowland, no stranger to the number one spot with her usual bandmates.

John Otway's Bunsen Burner, which gave the singer a number nine after 25 years away from the charts, has fallen out of the top 40.

Norah Jones
Norah Jones: Remarkable sales for a jazz singer
Will Young's album From Now On features several songs written by Young as well as the chart-toppers Anything Is Possible/Evergreen and his cover of The Doors' Light My Fire.

It is in its second week at number one, holding off a new compilation of the Rolling Stones' greatest hits, Forty Licks.

Another hits collection, Elvis Presley's, is at number three followed by jazz singer Norah Jones, whose album Come Away With Me has sold more than 300,000 copies - a rare event in the jazz world.

Two more collections - by Fleetwood Mac and INXS - have also entered the album top 20.
