Paramore knock Justin Timberlake from Official Albums Chart summit

By

Hayley Williams and co. score second UK Number 1 album in a row ending Justin Timberlake's three week run at the top of the Official Albums Chart.

Paramore have ended Justin Timberlake’s three-week stand at the top of the Official Albums Chart.

The US rock band’s self-titled, fourth studio album has gone straight in at Number 1 today, outselling JT’s The 20/20 Experience (Number 2) by just over two copies to one.

Fronted by 24-year-old Hayley Williams, Paramore formed in Franklin, Tennessee in 2004. To date they have clocked up six Official Top 40 singles, (including their latest track, Still Into You, which has shot up 57 places to enter the Top 40 at Number 26).  

Paramore is the band’s second UK Number 1; its predecessor, Brand New Eyes, also topped the chart in 2009.

P!nk’s The Truth About Love climbs two places to Number 3, while Emeli Sande’s Our Version of Events is up three to Number 4 after 61 weeks in the Top 10. Imagine Dragon’s debut album, Night Visions, completes this week’s Official Albums Chart Top 5.

New entries

In addition to Paramore (1), there are four other new entries on today’s Official Albums Chart.

London-based singer/songwriter and producer James Blake scores his second Top 10 album in a row today. Overgrown, the follow-up to his eponymous 2011 debut (which peaked at Number 9) is at Number 8.

Meanwhile Slipknot side-project Stone Sour’s House Of Gold And Bones: Part 2 (11) and OMD’s English Electric (12) finish the week just outside of the Top 10.

Swedish electro duo, The Knife, complete this week’s new entries with Shaking The Habitual (31).
