Little by little, Stella Mwangi, this year's Norwegian representative, started to conquer the music charts with her song Haba Haba. Her single tops this week's Norwegian chart after entering on the 9th spot last week.

Norway selected its Eurovision representative on February 12th. Stella Mwangi won the super final of Melodi Grand Prix 2011 with her African-inspired song Haba Haba which was written by Beyond51 and Big City.

As most of the Eurovision fans expected, Haba Haba entered the official music chart of Norway and it became this week's number one single after entering the charts at number 9. An international release of the single is scheduled for the fall of february and the fans should find the CD single in the music stores of Northern Europe by march.

This year's Norwegian entry is regarded as a favourite to win the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 and bring back the competition to Norway after Lena won the 2010 edition from Oslo.
