DJ Duke Dumont overcomes charts ding dong to take number one
Monday 15 April 2013
The ding-dong over this week's singles charts has ended with DJ Duke Dumont holding on to the number one spot.
Dumont's single "Need U (100%)", which features A*M*E, was challenged by a 51-second recording from musical The Wizard of Oz.
"Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead", adopted by those protesting against the legacy of Baroness Thatcher, entered the charts at number two following the former prime minister's death last Monday.
"Just Give Me A Reason" by Pink, featuring Nate Ruess, went down a place to number three, with "Pompeii" by Bastille at number four and "Feel This Moment" by Pitbull featuring Christina Aguilera climbing three places to number five, the Official Charts Company said.
There was a new entry at number 35 for the Nonsensibles with "I'm in Love With Margaret Thatcher".
The other new entry in the top 40 was Scottish singer Nina Nesbitt, who debuted at 21 with "Stay Out".
In the album charts, Paramore's self-titled fourth album ended Justin Timberlake's three-week stint at number one.
It went straight to the top, outselling Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience by just over two copies to one, and is the second number one album from the US rock band.
Emeli Sande's Our Version Of Events went up three places to number four and has now spent 61 weeks in the top 10.
Night Visions, the debut album by Imagine Dragons, went down three places and is now at number five.
There were new entries in the albums chart for James Blake, entering at number eight with Overgrown, and Stone Sour, with House of Gold and Bones: Part Two entering at number 11.
OMD's English Electric was another new entry at 12, while Swedish electro group The Knife entered the charts at number 31 with Shaking The Habitual.
