Knowles dominates UK charts
Knowles is having great success so far with her solo career
Destiny's Child singer Beyonce Knowles has topped both the UK singles and album chart.

Her single, Crazy in Love, went straight to the top of the singles charts, as did her debut solo album Dangerously in Love last week.

US rock band Evanescence's Bring Me To Life, which spent four weeks at the top of the singles, dropped to number two.

Knowles launched a solo career last year after her father, Destiny's Child manager Matthew Knowles, announced the R&B trio were to "take a little break".

Her debut solo single Work It Out was released last summer, and she followed that earlier this year with Crazy In Love.

The rest of the charts saw 10-member boy band Blazin' Squad, who had the highest new entry last week with their track We Must be Dreamin', fall nine places to number 12.
