Nelly has made chart history in America by crashing into the top of the album charts with two new releases.

The rapper joined GUNS N' ROSES as the only acts who have taken the number one and number two spots on the Billboard charts with two simultaneously released albums.

Nelly's SUIT and SWEAT albums hammered the competition with sales of 396,000 and 342,000 copies respectively.

Nelly is also the first act to debut in the top two slots of both the BILLBOARD 200 album chart and Billboard's Top R+B/HipHop Albums chart.

The rap star's nearest rival is former chart-topper Tim Mcgraw, whose LIVE LIKE YOU WERE DYING album fell from number two to three with sales of 121,000.
