Band say being Number One is 'best feeling in the world'

The View top UK album chart
The View have shot straight to the top of the album chart with their debut LP 'Hats Off To The Buskers'.

The Dundee four-piece, who had been tipped to claim the Number One spot all week, finally did so tonight (January 28), fending off stiff competition from Damon Albarn's band The Good, The Bad & The Queen, who entered the chart at Number Two with their self titled album.

The chart success rounds off a successful couple of weeks for the band who also went straight into the Top Three last week in the singles chart with 'Same Jeans', although it did slip two places to Number Five this week.

Speaking about their victory singer Kyle Falconer told NME.COM: "I can't believe it's gone to Number One, that's absolutely amazing. Its the best feeling in the world because I never expected it to go in that high not even after the single did so well last week."

Elsewhere in the singles chart, Mika, has held on to the top spot for a second week with 'Grace Kelly' on downloads alone.

There's new entries for Fall Out Boy with 'This Ain't A Scene It's An Arms Race' at six and My Chemical Romance with 'Famous Last Words' at eight while Klaxons have jumped seven places to score their first Top Ten hit with 'Golden Skans'.

Elsewhere Bloc Party are in at Number 20 with their comeback single 'The Prayer', Keane are in at 27 with 'Bad Dream' and Little Man Tate are in at 34 with 'Sexy In Latin'.

This week's top ten singles are:

1. Mika - 'Grace Kelly'
2. Just Jack - 'Starz In Their Eyes'
3. Mason - 'Exceeder'
4. Jojo - 'Too Little Too Late'
5. The View - 'Same Jeans'
6. Fall Out Boy - 'This Ain't A Scene It's An Arms Race'
7. Klaxons - 'Golden Skans'
8. My Chemical Romance - ' Famous Last Words'
9. Ordinary Boys - 'I Luv U'
10. Eric Prydz vs Pink Floyd - 'Proper Education'
