Justin Timberlake beats Bastille in battle for UK Number One single Justin Timberlake Tickets

'Mirrors' is this week's top-selling single

Justin Timberlake beats Bastille in battle for UK Number One single
Justin Timberlake has fended off competition from Bastille to claim this week's Number One single in the Official UK Single Chart.

The indie-rock act looked set to be a surprise contender in this week's chart battle, with their single 'Pompeii' locked in a close race with Timberlake's track 'Mirrors' in the midweek sales figures. However, according to data from the Official Charts Company, the singer ended the week selling 13,000 more copies than the band to claim his first UK Number One in nearly seven years.

Bastille still managed to claim the Number Two spot, with One Direction's Comic Relief charity single 'One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks)' at Number Three and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis's 'Thrift Shop' at Number Four. The top five was rounded out by Avicci Vs Nicky Romereo's 'I Could Be The One'.

In the Official UK Album Chart, meanwhile, Thom Yorke's supergroup Atoms For Peace claimed the week's highest new entry with their debut album 'Amok', which charted at Number Five. NME Godlike Genius Johnny Marr claims Number 10 with his solo debut 'The Messenger', while Palma Violets' debut '180' is at Number 11.

Emeli Sande is at Number One with 'Our Version Of Events', pipping Mumford And Sons ('Babel'), the Les Miserables soundtrack and Ben Howard ('Every Kingdom') to the top spot.
