Coldplay ousted from UK number one spot

But they remain solid on album summit

After just a week at the peak, tonight (June 29) Coldplay slip to number two on the single chart as they swap places with Ne-Yo and his track ‘Closer’.

However, it’s not all bad news for the all conquering four-piece. They remain at the top of the album chart with their massive selling ‘Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends’. It also soared to the top of the US album charts this week.

Just beneath Coldplay on the album chart are Duffy (2) and Neil Diamond (3), two artists enjoying very good Glastonburys.

Back on the single chart there is little movement, though Jordin Sparks climbs from 10 to three with ‘No Air’ and Busta Rhymes featuring Linkin Park moves into the top 10 at 10.

Former NME cover-stars Glasvegas score their first ever hit entering the top 20 at 16 with new single ‘Geraldine’. On the album chart there is more good news for Chris Martin as his favourite band Sigur Ros enter at five with ‘Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust’.

The UK top 10 singles are:

1. Ne-Yo – ‘Closer’

2. Coldplay – ‘Viva La Vida’

3. Jordin Sparks Ft Chris Brown – ‘No Air’

4. Chris Brown – ‘Forever’

5. Rihanna – ‘Take A Bow’

6. Sara Bareilles – ‘Love Song’

7. Gabriella Cilmi – ‘Sweet About Me’

8. The Ting Tings – ‘That’s Not My Name’

9. Duffy – ‘Warwick Avenue’

10. Busta Rhymes Ft Linkin Park – ‘We Made It’
