Jason Derulo gushed that "it never gets old" after being told he had secured the number one spot in the music charts with his new single.

The singer's latest release Want To Want Me went straight in at the highest position today, giving the American star his fourth UK number one.

The song racked up more than 127,000 sales in the past seven days, easily fending of its nearest competitor, last week's number one Cheerleader by OMI.

Derulo told OfficialCharts.com: "I just want to say thank you to all the fans for giving me this tremendous pleasure.

"It never ever gets old. Honestly, it feels just as good every time, if not better.

"I worked really hard on this album for about eight months, so to begin like this with a bang is a real blessing."

Skrillex, Diplo and Justin Bieber's collaboration Where Are U Now climbs two places to number three, followed by Wiz Khalifa's See You Again FT Charlie Puth and Taylor Swift's Bad Blood featuring Kendrick Lamar at number five.

After a close chart battle Will Young's 85% Proof has taken this week's Official Albums Chart Number 1 spot - the singer's fourth number one album.

The Vaccines land at number two today, scoring their third top five with English Graffiti, trailed by Taylor Swift's 1989

Fleetwood Mac's The Very Best Of is this week's highest climber, jumping a massive 68 places to Number 17.
