The Wanted & Adele Score Another Week At No.1

As Amy Winehouse makes a return to the charts following her death...

The Wanted have remained No.1 on the Official UK Singles Chart with their dance track, Glad You Came.

Tom, Max, Siva, Jay and Nathan managed to fight off some tough competition from DJ Fresh's Loud and Ed Sheeran's The A-Team to score their second week at the top.


The rest of the top ten also remained relatively unchanged, with Pitbull, Ne-Yo and Co's Give Me Everything being the biggest mover, climbing from ninth place to No.6.

Elsewhere in the Official UK Album Chart, Adele managed to extend her chart-topping reign, achieving her 18th week in poll position.

Beyoncé's 4, Adele's debut LP, 21, Caro Emerald: Deleted Scenes From The Cutting Room Floor and Lady GaGa's Born This Way went on to complete the top five.

The highest new entry in the album countdown came from LMFAO, who scored eighth position with their record, Sorry For Parting Rocking.

Following her tragic death on Saturday, Amy Winehouse's music was catapulted back into the chart, as her 2006 sophomore album, Back To Black, leapt up the countdown to No.59, while also taking the top spot on the iTunes chart.


Her singles Back To Black and Rehab also re-entered the countdown at No.81 and No.181 respectively.

Official Charts Company's Martin Talbot stated: "For the world and British music to lose such a talent and icon yesterday is truly tragic and already the popularity of Amy's music with the British public is being demonstrated, with sales of her albums rocketing by 37 times over the past 24 hours - according to Official Charts Company data."

"While Amy has already had an impact on the Official Charts - seven hours is just 4% of the seven-day sales period monitored for the Official Charts - we would expect an even bigger impact to roll through over the coming days.

He added: "Such a demonstration of her popularity is the best tribute the British public can pay to this extraordinary British talent."
