X Factor judge Cheryl Cole leapt straight to number one with her single Promise This, the Official Charts Company has said.
The singer sold 157,000 copies of the song, giving her the highest first week sales of 2010 for a non-charity single.
Promise This is her second number one solo single, following last year's debut release Fight For This Love.
The track outsold the 125,000 first week sales of Katy Perry Ft Snoop Dogg's California Gurls in June.
The record was also smashed by Rihanna who sold 126,000 copies of Only Girl (In The World) which entered the singles chart at number two.
Charity track Everybody Hurts by Helping Haiti, in aid of Haiti's earthquake victims, shifted an exceptional 453,000 copies in one week earlier this year.
Last year's X Factor winner Joe McElderry didn't enjoy the same success as his former mentor. His debut album Wide Awake entered the album charts at number three.
Rock quartet Kings Of Leon retained their position of chart domination with the Come Around Sundown album.
Michael Buble took the second spot with Crazy Love - which was at number seven last week.
Boy band The Wanted entered the album chart with their self titled album in the fourth position.
