British rapper Wretch 32 has stormed to the top of the UK singles chart with his new single.

Don't Go, featuring Josh Kumra, is the 26-year-old Londoner's third track from the album Black And White, which is released on Monday.

Two other new releases complete the top three, with Emeli Sande's Heaven taking second spot, and Moves Like Jagger by Maroon 5, featuring Christina Aguilera, coming in at number three.

Last week's chart topper, Promises by Nero, dropped to fifth, behind Christina Perri's Jar of Hearts.

The A Team by Ed Sheeran climbed from seventh to sixth, above Little Bad Girl, a collaboration between dance music producer David Guetta and US rappers Cruz and Ludacris.

Down With The Trumpets by Rizzle Kicks, She Makes Me Wanna by JLS and Dev, and Glad You Came by The Wanted complete the top 10.

In the albums chart, Nero's new release Welcome Reality went straight in at number one.

The London double-act held off Adele, whose 21 album stayed in second place above the late Amy Winehouse's iconic Back To Black record.

Hip hop stars Jay Z and Kanye West's collaborative Watch The Throne album slipped from third to fourth, while Adele's 19 held its fifth spot.
