Florence And The Machine have scored their first ever Number 1 single with a little help from acclaimed Scottish DJ and producer Calvin Harris.
While the London-based group have enjoyed two Number 1 albums - 2009’s Lungs and last year’s Ceremonials - their highest charting single to date was 2009’s You’ve Got The Love, which reached Number 5, and in 2010 a reworking by Dizzee Rascal, entitled You Got The Dirtee Love, reached Number 2. Today Spectrum (Say My Name), which has been remixed by Calvin Harris, debuts at the top of the Official Singles Chart.
Last week’s chart topper, Payphone by Maroon 5 falls one place to Number 2, while Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.I.Am holds firm at Number 3 with This Is Love. Chris Brown’s Don’t Wake Me Up is down two places to Number 4, and London girl group Stooshe complete this week’s Top 5 with Black Heart at Number 5.
In addition to Florence And The Machine’s Spectrum (Say My Name) (Number 1), there are just two other new entries on today’s Official Singles Chart. Adam Lambert, who has scored his highest charting UK album to date with new release Trespassing entering the Official Albums Chart at Number 16, sees his latest single Never Close Our Eyes debuting at Number 17. London indie rockers The Vaccines are new in at Number 37 with No Hope.
Rizzle Kicks are this week’s highest climbers with Mama Do The Hump up 23 places to re-enter the Official Singles Chart Top 40 at Number 33, while David Guetta’s I Can Only Imagine FT Lil Wayne and Chris Brown is up 22 places to Number 21. LMFAO’s Sexy And I Know It is up 17 places from 48 to 31, and Nicki Minaj’s Pound The Alarm achieves it’s highest chart placing to date, climbing six places from 16 to Number 10
