London: Clean Bandit have clung to the No 1 spot in the British music charts, seeing off stiff competition to make it four weeks running at the top, the Official Charts Company said on Sunday.
Midway through the week, their song Rather Be was trailing behind new entry Stay The Night by Zedd and Hayley Williams, but a late surge in sales secured the top spot for Clean Bandit by a margin of 8,000 singles.
Stay the Night was at No 2, pushing Pharrell Williams’ Happy into third. David Guetta’s Shot Me Down charted at No 4.
Londoner Katy B entered the album charts at No 1 with her second studio album, Little Red. The album contains the track Crying for no reason, which rose to No 5 in the singles chart from seven last week.
Ellie Goulding, London Grammar, Beyonce and Swedish DJ Avicii made up the rest of the top five, pushing aside last week’s chart topper, Bombay Bicycle Club.
