Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson's Uptown Funk! has scored a ninth week at the top of the U.S. pop charts, becoming one of only four songs to lead the countdown on both sides of the Atlantic for at least seven weeks.

Only Bryan Adams' (Everything I Do) I Do It for You; Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You, and Rihanna's Umbrella have managed the feat.

Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud comes in second on the Billboard Hot 100 for a seventh week, while Maroon 5's Sugar rises to three.

Ellie Goulding's Love Me Like You Do slides to four and Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul MCCartney's FourFiveSeconds returns to the top five at five.
