Calvin Harris & Florence Welch, UK’s new collaborative power couple, strike again as new single Sweet Nothing goes in at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart exactly three months after summer smash Spectrum hit the top spot.
Sweet Nothing is taken from Calvin Harris’ upcoming album 18 Months and replicates the chart success of his remixed version of Florence & The Machine’s Spectrum, which went straight in at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart in July this year.
Reigning chart toppers Swedish House Mafia slide one place to Number 2 with Don’t You Worry Child, while the inescapable Gangnam Style and Rihanna’s Diamonds hold firm at Number 3 and 4 respectively. Adele’s theme from the James Bond film Skyfall drops three places to Number 5 in its third week on the chart.
