In the Official UK Singles Chart, OneRepublic have secured their first ever UK Number One with 'Counting Stars', despite competition from The Vamps, whose track 'Can We Dance' finished the week at Number Two. Jason DeRulo's 'Talk Dirty' is down two places at Number Three, Katy Perry's 'Roar' is also down two at Number Four and Chase & Status' 'Count On Me' is new in at Number Five.
