Alicia Keys scores UK Number One album (February 7)

Owl City hold onto the top spot in the singles chart

Alicia Keys scores UK Number One album (February 7)
Alicia Keys' fourth album 'The Element Of Freedom' has climbed to Number One in the UK charts tonight (February 7).

The US soul singer released the record last December, but this week is the first it has occupied the top spot.

'The Element Of Freedom' fought off tough competition from Dutch violinist Andre Rieu and his album 'Forever Vienna', thought to be the highest charting classical album this century.

Elsewhere in the chart, Hot Chip's fourth album 'One Life Stand' debuted at Number 11, while Midlake's 'The Courage Of Others' went in at number 18.

Meanwhile, in the singles chart, Owl City's 'Fireflies' retained the Number One spot for a third week, according to The Official Charts Company – the highest new entry was Jedward ft. Vanilla Ice with their version of 'Under Pressure (Ice Ice Baby)'.

The only other new entry in the chart is Timbaland ft. Katy Perry's 'If We Ever Meet Again', at Number Three.

The UK Top 10 singles are:

1. Owl City – 'Fireflies'
2. Jedward ft. Vanilla Ice – 'Under Pressure (Ice Ice Baby)'
3. Timbaland ft. Katy Perry – 'If We Ever Meet Again'
4. Glee Cast – 'Don't Stop Believin''
5. Alicia Keys – 'Empire State Of Mind (Part II)'
6. Iyaz – 'Replay'
7. 3OH!3 ft. Katy Perry – 'Starstrukk'
8. JLS – 'One Shot'
9. Journey – 'Don't Stop Believin''
10. Example – 'Won't Go Quietly'

The UK Top 10 albums are:

1. Alicia Keys - 'The Element Of Freedom'
2. Andre Rieu – 'Forever Vienna'
3. Paolo Nutini – 'Sunny Side Up'
4. Florence And The Machine – 'Lungs'
5. Corinne Bailey Rae – 'The Sea'
6. Lady Gaga – 'The Fame'
7. The Chipmunks – 'Alvin & The Chipmunks 2: The Squeakquel'
8. Ke$ha – 'Animal'
9. Peter Andre – 'Unconditional Love Songs'
10. Mumford & Sons – 'Sigh No More'
