Country and western singer Tim Mcgraw made his first ever entry into the UK chart with his crossover duet with Nelly.

The American singer is a massive star in his native America, but had failed to break through in Britain - where he was until recently a virtual unknown - until he teamed up with the smooth-talking hip-hop star for the track OVER AND OVER.

McGraw and Nelly knocked Jennifer Lopez's GET RIGHT off the top spot, and beat off competition from other new entries Elvis Presley, Akon and LL Cool J to become British number one.
