Added on Monday 27 June 2005, 10:24 (BST)

The following article from Music Week talks about Jamiroquai's new entry into the UK album charts (behind Coldplay and James Blunt) complete with first week sales figures:

"Becoming the first Coldplay album to open with three weeks at number one, X&Y posted another six figure sale last week, attracting a further 100,198 buyers to lift its 20 day tally to 803,642.  Although its sales were down week-on-week by 58.1%, X&Y sold 30.9% more than new runner-up James Blunt's debut album Back To Bedlam. Blunt's disc enjoyed a 14.3% increase in sales to 76,546. Completing the artist album chart top three, and providing the only new entry in the Top 20, is Dynamite, the new album from Jamiroquai. Since 1993, Jamiroquai have released six albums - three number ones, two number twos, and one number three - the last and least being new album Dynamite, which sold 64,150 copies last week to debut behind Coldplay and James Blunt. That's 20% down on the 80,209 sales which earned Jamiroquai's last album, A Funk Odyssey, a number one debut in 2001. Of Jamiroquai's number two albums, 1994's Return Of The Space Cowboy was denied by Cross Roads - The Best Of Bon Jovi and 1996's Travelling Without Moving spent a fortnight in second place, first behind REM's New Adventures In Hi-Fi then Kula Shaker's K."
