LONDON (Reuters) - British boy band The Wanted hit number one with their debut single “All Time Low” on Sunday, knocking Australian dance group Yolanda Be Cool’s “We No Speak Americano” into second place, the Official UK Charts Company said.
There were four other new entries to the top 40, all in the top 10.
These were alternative hip-hop artist Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire” at number 3, rapper Flo Rida’s “Club Can’t Handle Me” at number 5, Swedish House Mafia’s dance track “One (Your Name)” at number 7 and Magnetic Man’s dubstep single “I Need Air” at number 10.
In the album chart, U.S. rapper Eminem’s album “Recovery” clung to the top spot after Welsh icon Tom Jones failed to displace it with his gospel-influenced entry “Praise & Blame.”
U.S. rock band Avenged Sevenfold had the only other new album in the top 10 with “Nightmare,” while Irish talent show teen duo Jedward achieved 17th place with their new debut album “Planet Jedward.”
