Lady Gaga lands third UK Number One album for ‘ARTPOP’

Meanwhile 17 year old Dutch DJ Martin Garrix tops the Official Singles Chart with his debut 'Animals'

Lady Gaga has scored her third Official Albums Chart Number One with her latest release ‘ARTPOP’.

The US singer has pushed last week’s Number One, Eminem’s ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2’, into second place, and also beat off competition from Celine Dion, whose ‘Loved Me Back To Life’ is in at Number Three, and Little Mix, whose second album ‘Salute’ is a new entry at Number Four, reports the Official Charts Company. The Killers are also a new entry in this week’s Official Album Chart, with their ‘best of’ collection, ‘Direct Hits’, coming in at sixth place.

Meanwhile, Martin Garrix has this evening topped the Official Singles Chart with his debut single ‘Animals’. The 17 year-old Dutch DJ beat competition from Lily Allen, whose cover of Keane‘s ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ came in at Number Two. The original version of the song also re-entered the chart at Number 29.


Other new entries in chart include Lady Gaga and R Kelly’s ‘Do What U Want’, which is in at Number Nine and Robbie Williams with ‘Go Gentle’ at Number 10. The song is taken from his 10th album ‘Swings Both Ways’. The Killers’ ‘Shot At The Night’ also enters at Number 23.
