JLS Beat Robbie To Number 1 Album

Whilst the Black Eyed Peas top the singles chart...

After a close chart battle, X Factor finalistsJLShave beaten Robbie Williams to the album top spot.

 
The boy-band, who came second to Alexandra Burkeon the talent show last year, went straight to number 1 with their debut LP, despite tough competition from the Snow Patrol.
 
However, the race to the top was very close with the London boy band beating Robbie by a margin of less than 1%.
 
Williams reportedly phoned the boys to congratulate them on their chart triumph as the band posted on their Arctic Monkeys' 2006 release Black Eyed Peas beat Leona Lewis to the number 1 spot in the singles chart with Cheryl Cole’s monster hitN-Dubz’ new tune I Need You completing the top 5.
