50 CENT is enjoying an astonishing week in America after topping the album charts and publicly ending his war of words with protege THE GAME - he has also extended his run at the top of the single chart.

The rapper also claims the top spot in the BILLBOARD Hot 100 Airplay, Hot R+B/Hip-Hop Singles + Tracks and Hot R+B/Hip-Hop Airplay charts, with his CANDY SHOP hit, which scores a third week at number one on the national chart.

50's new album, THE MASSACRE, crashed into the top spot on the album chart yesterday (09MAR05) after notching up 1.14 million sales in just four days - the sixth biggest debut in Billboard chart history.

50 Cent has three singles in the Hot 100's top five - his duet with THE GAME on HOW WE DO and Disco Inferno are numbers four and five respectively.
