Hope For Haiti Now Compilation Tops U.k. Chart
Performances from Justin Timberlake, Madonna and Alicia Keys have helped to make the all-star HOPE FOR HAITI NOW album the first digital-only release to top the U.K. compilations chart.
The album of tracks performed during George Clooney's charity telethon, including a collaboration between Jay-Z, Rihanna and U2 rockers Bono and The Edge, debuted at number one after selling more than 22,000 units.
The news comes just days after the Hope For Haiti Now album hit the top of the U.S. Billboard chart, with digital sales of the telethon's performances raising more than $3 million (£1.87 million) for the earthquake relief effort.
Meanwhile, Scottish singer Paulo Nutini is number one in the U.K. albums chart with Sunny Side Up and Owl City's Fireflies remains the nation's most popular single for the second consecutive week.
