Chris Brown scores first UK no.1 single

Chris Brown has bagged his first number one single in the UK with 'Turn Up The Music'.

Brown seems to be shaking off the stigmas of his past as far as the public go and 'Turn Up the Music' turns in strong sales to climb to the top.

Sean Paul's sticking at number two with 'She Doesn't Mind', while Nicki Minaj's 'StarShips' moves up to number three.

Katy Perry's 'Part of Me' gets knocked off the top spot and lands at four this week.

Gotye falls two places down to number five with 'Somebody That I Used to Know'. When you consider that the song has been in the charts for 13 weeks now, that's a pretty solid performance.

Plan B finds his way to number six with 'iLL Manors', an urban anthem for generations X, Y and Z that points the blame for the riots squarely at the government. If there had been any justice, this would have placed a little bit higher on the charts.

Sia and Flo Rida rises up to number seven with 'Wild Ones', as David Guetta and Sia slip to eight with 'Titanium'. Sia's had a strong run in the charts recently with these two unstoppable singles and though 'Titanium' fell, both songs still remain strong in the top ten.

The surprise comes from Labrinth this week, who falls five places to nine on the chart with 'Last Time'.

Emeli Sandé's 'Next to Me' drops down to ten in a week of tough competition and further down the chart, Jason Mraz sticks at number 15 with 'I Won't Give Up'.
