50 CENT has ended R+B pin-up Mario's nine week run at the top of the US singles chart by opening his Candy Shop at number one.

The saucy rap tune - 50 Cent's third chart-topper - is one of three tracks the IN DA CLUB hitmaker has in the top 10.

50 is featured on The Game's HOW WE DO, which is this week's number four tune, while his Disco Inferno hit remains at number six for a second week.

Meanwhile, Green Day's BOULEVARD OF BROKEN DREAMS continues its steady climb up the charts to number two on the new Billboard hit list, and Mario's LET ME LOVE YOU slips to number three.

Elsewhere in the top 10, Usher earns the fifth top 10 single from his hit album CONFESSIONS as CAUGHT UP jumps from 11 to nine.
