Soul singer Duffy has moved back to number one on the UK album chart with Rockferry, while Estelle's American Boy was the top single for the fourth week.

The soundtrack to the Rolling Stones' documentary Shine a Light went in at two, knocking last week's top album, REM's Accelerate, down to three.

There was a new entry at four for St Jude, the debut album by Manchester band The Courteeners.

Sam Sparrow's single Black and Gold climbed two places to number two.

Madonna's Four Minutes, which featured Justin Timberlake, fell one to fourth place, and Mariah Carey rose from number eight to number five with Touch My Body.

Further down the singles chart, there was a new entry at nine for Swedish singer Petra Marklund - who performs under the name September - with her dance track Cry For You.

And Black Kids went in at 11 with I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance with You.

In January the five-piece from Florida were featured in the BBC's Sound of 2008 search for this year's best new talent while they were still unsigned, coming in eighth place.

The reworked dance classic Toca's Miracle by Fragma entered this week's chart at number 16.

The album chart saw the comeback by 1990s indie stars James - entitled Hey Ma - making its debut at 10.

And Stand by Your Man, the greatest hits of country singer Tammy Wynette, was new at number 23.

The success of Duffy and Brit Award-winner Adele has led to recent criticism of the state of the music industry by Estelle.

She told the Guardian she could not understand why there was "not a single black person in the press singing soul" at the moment.

Duffy responded this week saying that when it came to soul music, the colour of an artist's skin was irrelevant.

"If the talent and the desire is there, I don't really think it matters what colour you are," she told BBC Radio 1's Newsbeat.
