50 CENT has made it four weeks of double chart-toppers in America by holding the number one spot on Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart for a sixth week.

The rapper's Candy Shop has held off a chart challenge from American Idol star Kelly Clarkson to hold on to the top spot, while his album THE MASSACRE scores a fourth week at number one on the album charts.

Four seems to be the rap star's lucky number - he also has four singles in the top 10 for the second straight week.

Meanwhile, Nine Inch Nails' comeback is complete - the TRENT REZNOR-led group score the week's highest debut on the new singles chart, with THE HAND THAT FEEDS entering the rundown at number 31.

The new Hot 100 also sports the first appearance by STEVIE WONDER since 1995 - his new tune, SO WHAT THE FUSS, featuring Prince and En Vogue, just makes the chart at number 96.
