Lewis Scores A U.s. Chart Double

LEONA LEWIS has scored a rare double in the U.S. by claiming the top spot on both the album and singles charts.
The Brit's Bleeding Love was ousted from the number one position by Mariah Carey's record-breaking track Touch My Body - but now Lewis has toppled Carey, just a day after becoming the first British female solo artist to debut at number one on the Billboard album chart.
By scoring the double, Lewis becomes the first Brit to top both charts in the same week since Phil Collins in 1990.
The Carey/Lewis chart war is expected to continue next week (beg21Apr08), when the U.S. diva is expected to take over at the top of the album chart with her new release E=MC2.
Challenging Lewis for the top spot on the singles chart is rapper Lil Wayne, whose Lollipop hit jumps up from four to two; and No Air, Jordin Sparks' duet with Chris Brown, which rises four spots to three.
Former chart-toppers from Usher and Carey complete the top five.
The Hot 100's top debut is Daughtry's What About Now, which the group performed on last week's (ends11Apr08) American Idol charity show Idol Gives Back. The song enters the new countdown at 18.
