Rudimental beat Will.i.am and Daft Punk to bag their second UK Number One single in less than a year.

The East London drum & bass group are this week's Official UK Number One with their track 'Waiting All Night', emerging victorious with opening week sales of 107,000 – almost 38,000 ahead of Will.i.am's '#ThatPower' featuring Justin Bieber, reports the Official Charts Company.

Astonishingly, Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky' is at Number Three just 48 hours after its release. The track, featuring Pharrell Williams and Chic's Nile Rodgers, was downloaded more than 50,000 times since its release on Friday (March 19). The song is now Daft Punk’s second highest charting single of their career, behind 2000's club smash 'One More Time', which peaked at Number Two.

Last week's Number One, Duke Dumont and AME's 'Need U (100%)' is at Number Four and P!NK's 'Just Give Me A Reason' is at Number Five. Psy's 'Gentleman', the follow-up to 2012's 'Gangnam Style', is up 51 places to Number Ten, giving the Korean singer his second Top 10 single.

In the Official UK Album Chart, Michael Buble has scored the fastest-selling album of 2013 after 'To Be Loved' notched up sales of 121,000 in its first week, outselling the rest of the Top 5 combined.

Recently reunited US rockers Fall Out Boy are at Number Two with their comeback album 'Save Rock And Roll', while Emeli Sande's 'Our Version Of Events' is at Number Three. P!NK's 'The Truth About Love' is at Number Four and Justin Timberlake's 'The 20/20 Experience' completes this week's Top 5.

Elsewhere, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs bag their third consecutive Top 10 with their new album 'Mosquito' new in at Number Nine. Kid Cudi's 'Indicud' is at Number 32, while Major Lazer's 'Free The Universe' is at Number 34.
