Kings Of Leon rule the charts again

Kings of Leon, fronted by Caleb Followill, have topped the charts with their sixth album Mechanical Bull

Kings Of Leon ruled the charts this week as their latest album went straight in at number one.

The American rockers' sixth album Mechanical Bull is the latest hit for the Grammy award-winning band and their fourth number one album in the UK.

This week's top 10 was awash with new entries including Canadian rapper Drake's Nothing Was The Same at number two, his highest scoring album to date.

The UK's own Jessie J went straight in at number three with Alive while American pop singer Jason Derulo's Tattoos was at five and teen songstress Birdy's second album Fire Within debuted in eighth place.

Last week's number one, Arctic Monkeys' AM, slid down to fourth position.

Veteran rock star Sting also returns to the charts today with his first solo album in a decade - The Last Ship - entering at number 14.

There were no new entries in the top 10 singles chart, with Derulo remaining in the top spot with Talk Dirty and Katy Perry's power pop record Roar still at number two.

One Republic's Counting Stars, Drake's Hold On We're Going Home and Avicii's You Make Me completed the top five.

Demi Lovato's Skyscraper heads up this week's highest climbers, soaring 46 places to number 13 and its highest chart position to date following X Factor contestant Hannah Sheares' rendition on the ITV show.
