Justin Timberlake storms to the top of the UK singles chart with 'Mirrors'
Monday 04 March 2013
Justin Timberlake stormed to the top of the singles charts this week with "Mirrors".
The American singer beat Bastille's new entry "Pompeii" into second spot ahead of last week's number one, One Direction's cover of Blondie's "One Way Or Another".
Timberlake is continuing to ride the wave that sent him from 28th to fourth last Sunday after he performed "Mirrors" at the Brit Awards.
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis's "Thrift Shop" was bumped down from second to fourth, while previous Number One "I Could Be The One" by Avicii vs Nicky Romero was a non-mover in fifth.
Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars held on to their sixth and seventh places with "I Knew You Were Trouble" and "When I Was Your Man", as Baauer's "Harlem Shake" - the song behind the latest internet dance craze - dropped from third to eighth.
In the albums chart, the top two were unchanged from last week, with Emeli Sande's Our Version Of Events at the summit above Babel by the folksters Mumford and Sons.
The soundtrack to the Hollywood blockbuster Les Miserables crept up from fifth to third as Ben Howard's Every Kingdom held on to fourth.
The highest new entry in the albums chart was Atoms For Peace's Amok.
