Bon Iver hits fourth spot with new release

Lady Gaga‘s ‘Born This Way’ has returned to the top of the album charts this weekend (June 26), reclaiming the top spot from ‘Progressed’ by Take That.

The album, released in May, charted at Number One on its release, selling over 215,000 copies. Gaga‘s ‘The Edge Of Glory’ has also climbed back up to Number Eight in the singles chart.

Returning to the UK album chart summit will be yet another reason for Lady Gaga to celebrate, following her part in the victory for the legalisation of same sex partnerships in New York on Friday (June 24).


Elsewhere in the charts, Bon Iver scored a respectable fourth place with his self-titled second album. It’s a marked improvement on his debut album ‘For Emma, Forever Ago’, which reached 42 back in 2008.

In the singles chart, Jason Derulo has scored his second Number One with ‘Don’t Wanna Go Home’, replacing Example and ‘Changed The Way You Kissed Me’.

The 21-year-old R&B singer’s track will feature on his second album ‘Future History’, due for release in September. His first Number One single was 2010’s ‘In My Head’.

The only other notable new entry in the singles chart is ‘Badman Riddim (Jump)’ from Dutch dirty house DJ and producer Vato Gonazlez (aka Bjorn Franken), featuring UK hip-hop and grime collective Foreign Beggars, which charted at Number Seven.
