The Tings Tings score first Number One

The Ting Tings have scored their first Number One hit, knocking Madonna off the top with their single ‘That’s Not My Name’.

The Manchester pop duo ended the Queen of Pop‘s four-week reign at the summit with ‘4 Minutes’, featuring Justin Timberlake.

It is the second time ‘That’s Not My Name’ has been released after it came out as a very limited edition self-release in 2007, but still made NME‘s Top Ten tracks of the year.

The Ting Tings spent their week battling with Madonna in the charts playing The Great Escape in Brighton – watch NME.COM‘s exclusive video with the band by clicking below.

Elsewhere, Rihanna went straight in at Number Two with her new single ‘I Will Take A Bow’ while Madonna fell to Number Three.

In the album chart Neil Diamond has claimed his first ever Number One with ‘Home Before Dark’.

His success comes 42 years after the release of his debut album ‘The Feel Of Neil Diamond’.

No other artist has taken so long from the start of their career to make it to Number One in the history of the charts, according to the Official UK Charts Company.

His current success is mirrored in the US, where he also scored his first ever Number One in the Billboard Top 200.

Elsewhere, in the album chart, Pendulum went in at two with ‘In Silico’, Iron Maiden went in at 14 with their greatest hits compilation ‘Somewhere Back In Time’, Death Cab For Cutie shot straight in at 24 with ‘Narrow Stairs’ while Santogold came in at 26 with her self-titled debut.

Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip went in at 31 with ‘Angles’, while Flight Of The Conchords were one place below.
