Kiesza has scored her first UK number one single with debut single 'Hideaway' after huge first-week sales. The Canadian singer-songwriter managed to sell over 136,000 copies of her debut and sent Sigma packing down to number two.

'Hideaway' is now 2014's third fastest-selling single behind Clean Bandit's 'Rather Be' and Pitbull's 'Timber', which sold 163,000 and 139,000 copies respectively.

"Being Number 1 is the most amazing feeling ever," Kiesza told Official Charts Company.

"I just want to say thank you to everybody who’s supported it. I never expected this at all when I created Hideaway; it’s amazing to see people come out of the woodwork and fall in love with it, so thank you!”

Sigma's 'Nobody to Love' drops to number two, while Shift K3Y bags his first UK top 10 single with new entry 'Touch' at three. John Legend's 'All of Me' clings on at four and Aloe Blacc's 'The Man' completes the top five.

Tove Lo's 'Stay High' is the third highest new entry at six, Pharrell Williams' 'Happy' is still smiling at number seven and Duke Dumont's 'I Got U' is at eight.

Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX drop to nine with 'Fancy' and Route 94's 'My Love' completes the top 10.

Outside of the week's biggest singles, Elyar Fox misses out on another top 10 with 'A Billion Girls', which enters at number 11.
