Reggae-pop hit Cheerleader is number one for the second week in a row, keeping Wiz Khalifa's Fast & Furious tribute track in second place.

Singer Omi believes the public made the right choice in helping his track to the top spot, joking: "I'm a fan of my fans."

Cheerleader eventually finished more than 14,000 chart sales above See You Again and was also the most streamed track of the week, clocking up more than 3.2 million listens.

Omi told the "I knew it was a good song when I recorded it but I always say, I don't determine whether it's a number one, the people do.

"Thanks to the people, I'm a fan of my fans, I love you very much, thank you."

Carly Rae Jepsen's I Really Like You remained a non-mover at number three while Bristol-based deep house duo Blonde scored this week's highest new entry with All Cried Out, featuring Alex Newell at number four.

In the album charts Mumford & Sons claimed the top spot with their third album Wilder Mind.

The folk-rock band scored an impressive 81,300 chart sales to bump Blur's The Magic Whip down to number two.
