Ne-yo Overtakes Coldplay To Number Oneby Contributor | 29 June 2008
Ne-Yo's Closer has climbed one place to knock Coldplay off the top spot in the singles chart, but Vida La Vida remains Britain's number one album.
The title track stormed to number one last week from downloads alone, denying Ne-Yo a chart-topper in his sixth week in the charts.
This week, however, Closer outstripped sales of Vida La Vida, giving the singer-songwriter his second UK number one.
Jordin Sparks took the highest new entry with No Air, while Chris Brown climbed one place with Forever at four.
Rihanna rounded off the top five singles with her Take A Bow track.
In the album charts the top three remained frozen with non-movers. Coldplay, Duffy and Neil Diamond stuck to their slots with Darren Styles' Skydivin' the highest new entry at four.
Sigur Ros' Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust entered at five while Exclusive by Chris Brown completed the rash of new entries at six.
The other new entry in the album top ten was the Jonas Brothers' eponymous record, in at number nine.
