Pharrell Williams reclaims Official UK Number One with ‘Happy’

Meanwhile, Ellie Goulding holds on to the Official UK Albums Chart top spot

Pharrell Williams has reclaimed the Official UK Singles Chart Number One with his track ‘Happy’.

Williams was knocked off the Number One spot last week by Pitbull and Ke$ha‘s ‘Timber’, which is this week’s Number Two, but a surge in sales has put the American star back on top, reports the Official Charts Company.

Avicii’s ‘Hey Brother’ holds onto Number Three again this week, Jason DeRulo’s ‘Trumpets’ is at Number Four and Fuse ODG jumps nine places to Number Five with ‘Million Pound Girl (Badder Than Bad)’, scoring his highest UK chart position to date, after debut single ‘Antenna’ peaked at Number Seven last year.

Elsewhere, Dutch DJ Hardwell has scored his first ever Top 40 hit with ‘Dare You’, Beyonce’s ‘Drunk Love’, her collaboration with husband Jay Z, is at Number 10 and Busta Rhymes climbs 61 places to Number 37 with ‘Thank You’.

In the Official UK Albums Chart, Ellie Goulding has fought off competition from Beyoncé to remain top of the chart with ‘Halycon’, which became Number One last week, 65 weeks after its initial release.

Beyonce’s self-titled album is at Number Two, Gary Barlow’s ‘Since I Saw You Last’ is at Number Three and John Newman’s ‘Tribute’ is at Number Four. Bastille return to the Official Albums Chart Top 5 with their debut album ‘Bad Blood’.
