Timbaland Still Top Dogby Contributor | 06 August 2007
R&B music producer and rapper Timbaland has held on to his top spot in the UK singles chart with The Way I Are.
The grammatically-infuriating song featuring DOE and American singer Keri Hilson is still number one, a week after ending Rihanna and Jay-Z's summer reign at the top with Umbrella.
Kate Nash's first single through Fiction Records, Foundations, similarly retains its runner-up spot in its second week, while Fergie's Big Girls Don't Cry moves up one to three after swapping places with Umbrella.
Dutch dance artist Robyn With Kleerup's With Every Heartbeat the only new entry in the top ten completes the top five.
In the albums chart, Britain's Got Talent winner Paul Potts is still number one with his first-ever album One Chance.
But the opera singer had to survive a strong challenge from teenage sensation Amy Macdonald and Newton Faulkner, whose debut albums This is the Life and Hand Built by Robots reached two and three in the charts.
