Jagger set for top 10 chart return

Sir Mick Jagger is due to return to the top 10 of the singles chart for the first time in more than a quarter of a century.

The Rolling Stones singer features on the new Will.I.Am single, T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever), which is expected to be in the top five at the weekend, figures from the Official Charts Company show.

He last achieved a top 10 hit with the Stones in 1981 with Start Me Up, and his most recent appearance in his own right was in 1985 when he duetted with David Bowie on Dancing In The Street.

The 68-year-old is guest vocalist on Black Eyed Peas star Will.I.Am's single, along with Jennifer Lopez.

Sales figures show the track could go as high as the top three by Sunday.

Sir Mick said he was delighted with the success of the song.

He told "We had a great time recording the track and I'm glad that UK music lovers are liking it."

His most recent entry in the singles chart with his group SuperHeavy - which includes Joss Stone and Dave Stewart - peaked at number 136.

He was recently immortalised in last year's chart-topping Maroon 5 hit Moves Like Jagger.
