Aguilera 'Beautiful' Atop British Pop Charts

Christina Aguilera swapped sexy for soft on her latest single but still topped the British pop charts on Sunday, ending the four-week reign of Russian “lesbian” duo Tatu.

The American pop star, who recently unveiled a raunchy new image, topped the British singles charts for the second time in three months with the gentle ballad “Beautiful,” the latest release from her million-selling album “Stripped.”

Aguilera hit No. 1 in Britain last November with “Dirrty.”

Spanish DJ and producer DJ Sammy slid in at No. 2 with his re-dub of Don Henley’s 1980s classic “The Boys of Summer,” a current dance favorite.

Russian duo Tatu – their name means “This Girl Loves That Girl” – slipped from top spot to third with “All the Things She Said.” The song’s video features schoolgirl outfits and a lesbian kiss and was banned by the BBC.

Also new this week was Danish duo Junior Senior who entered at No. 4 with “Move Your Feet.” “Keep Me A Secret” from Ainslie Henderson, who found success on the BBC television program “Fame Academy,” debuted at No. 5.

Solo Spice Girl Melanie C – aka “Sporty Spice” – jumped in at No. 7 with “Here it Comes Again,” the first release from her new album “Reason.”
