Mika King Of The Charts

by | 12 February 2007

Mika's debut album has entered the UK album chart at number one.

The Lebanese-born singer's glam effort beat off competition from other new entries on the album chart. Bloc Party's A Weekend In The City entered at number two while Fall Out Boy's Infinity On High came in at number three.

That meant a bad result for Norah Jones, who last week saw her Not Too Late record become the 800th album number one in the chart's history. Seven days later she slipped to four, with Amy Winehouse's Back To Black holding up well by clinging to number five.

It was all Mika this week, however, as the singer's Grace Kelly stayed at number one in the singles chart for a fifth consecutive week.

Trying a bit of Freddie seems to be working for the singer as his song outsold the Kaiser Chiefs' Ruby, the highest new entry at number two.

Just Jack's Starz In Their Eyes stayed at number three and was leapfrogged by Fall Out Boy, whose This Ain't A Scene It's An Arms Race slipped from two to four.

The only other new entry in this week's top ten was Akon and Snoop Dogg's collaboration, I Wanna Love You, which came in at number nine.
