Calvin Harris has reached the top of the singles chart this week with his track ‘Blame’ featuring John Newman.

The song marks the Scottish DJ’s fifth number one as the main musician on a track and his seventh as a collaborative artist.

Harris has previously had hits with ‘Under Control’ in 2013 and ‘Summer’ earlier this year.

He announced over Twitter back in June that the single would be coming out. The music video for the eagerly anticipated ‘Blame’ premiered on Friday and has already had over 2 million views on YouTube.

‘Blame’ is Newman’s third chart-topper. The singer has had previous success on collaborations with Rudimental on ‘Love Me Again’ and ‘Feel The Love’.

The pair knocked Lilly Wood & Robin Schulz’s ‘Prayer In C’ into second place.

Meanwhile in the UK album charts former Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant was the highest new entry.

His tenth studio album Lullaby and The Ceaseless Roar reached number two as Sam Smith’s debut In the Lonely Hour retained the top spot.

Plant has now seen 34 of his records reach the top 40 album charts, including 20 with Led Zeppelin.
