Chart Boost For Brits Winners

by | 19 February 2007

Success at this week's Brit awards has been translated into the country's singles and albums charts, with Amy Winehouse and Take That both climbing up the rankings.

Winehouse, who won best female at Earls Court in midweek, saw her album Back to Black climb three places to two, while Beautiful World by comeback kids and best British single winners Take That re-entered the top five.

But the real winner this week was Lebanese-born sensation Mika, whose single Grace Kelly and album Life in Cartoon Motion still top both charts for the fourth and second weeks respectively.

There were no new entries in either charts, with Kaiser Chiefs' new single Ruby sticking at two and I Wanna Love You by Akon and Snoop Doggy Dogg rising six to three.

Patience, the single that won Take That their sole award at the Valentine's Day Brit awards, jumped 12 places to tenth overall.
