Madonna Holds Off Portishead To Claim Album Number One

May 5, 2008
Madonna Holds Off Portishead To Claim Album Number OneMadonna has claimed a UK chart double after her new album ‘Hard Candy’ went straight in a number 1 on the album chart.

The album, which features Justin Timberlake and Pharrell Williams, is the singer’s tenth number one UK album.

‘4 Minutes’, the LP's first single, has maintained its position on top of the singles chart.

Elsewhere in the album countdown, Portishead’s long awaited third album, entitled ‘Third’, entered at number 2.

Last week’s number 1, The Last Shadow Puppets, fell to number 4, while Sam Sparro’s self-titled debut LP was the only other new release to break into the top-10, charting at number 5.

In a quiet week in the singles chart, One Night Only entered at number 37 with ‘It’s About Time’.
