The American rapper's latest effort 'Life Is Good' knocks the Zac Brown Band from the summit in its first week.

Nas has been named as the new number one on the Billboard 200 chart in the US with his new album 'Life Is Good'.

The 'Get Down' star debuts at the chart summit ending Zac Brown Band's one week reign in a week where Adele claimed her 74th week inside the top ten.

The 'Someone Like You' star's album '21' continues to dominate after being released almost 18 months ago.

One Direction's 'Up All Night' remains inside the top ten with 'Up All Night' holding in the seventh spot.

The soundtrack to the new Batman film The Dark Knight Rises is at number eight with Phil Collins making a surprising return at six with his album 'Hits'.

Justin Bieber's 'Believe' drops from three to five and Maroon 5's 'Overexposed' falls five places to make up the top ten.

Adele's New Album 21

Adele's '21' has already broken several records this year and scooped major honours at the Grammy and BRIT Awards 2012 ceremonies.

The singer is currently working on the follow up and is expected to give birth to her first child with boyfriend Simon Konecki in September.
