Bruce Springsteen has scored his 10th UK Number One Album with 'High Hopes'.

The Boss' latest record now puts him ahead of acts such as David Bowie, ABBA, Queen and Michael Jackson, who have all had nine UK Number One albums, and puts him level with U2, The Rolling Stones and Robbie Williams, reports the Official Charts Company.

Ellie Goulding is at Number Two with her album 'Halcyon', with Beyonce's self-titled album at Number Three, 'Bad Blood' by Bastille at Number Four and Gary Barlow's 'Since I Saw You Last' completes this week's Official UK Albums Chart Top 5.

In the Official UK Singles Chart, Pharrell Williams' 'Happy' looks like it could be at Number One for the foreseeable future after 118,000 more copies were purchased last week. The track has now smashed through the half-a-million mark.

Taken from the soundtrack Despicable Me 2, 'Happy' made its Official Singles Chart debut at Number 71 at the end of November. It then shot into the Top 10 two weeks later, before reaching the top spot on December 28.

Pitbull and Ke$ha’s 'Timber' is at Number Two, 'Hey Brother' by Avicii is at Number Three and Jason DeRulo's 'Trumpets' is at Number Four. This week's Official UK Singles Chart Top Five is completed with 'Do It All Over Again' by Eylar Fox.
