Rapper 50 CENT has made chart history in America by becoming the first artist to have three hits in the BILLBOARD Hot 100 top five in the same week.

The rap star's Candy Shop has extended its run at the top of the charts to two weeks, while his collaboration with The Game, HOW WE DO, is at number four and his Disco Inferno tune rises to number five.

50 Cent also becomes the first artist in history to take over the top three slots of Billboard's Rhythmic Top 40 chart, with the same three songs.

Green Day's BOULEVARD OF BROKEN DREAMS and Mario's former number one LET ME LOVE YOU - at numbers two and three on the Hot 100 chart respectively - are preventing 50 from claiming the top three spots on the main chart.
