Number One Still Number One

by | 10 May 2009

The appropriately-named Number One by Tinchy Stryder and N-Dubz is the top-selling UK single for the third week running.

The single - the first-ever UK number one to actually be named Number One according to the Official Charts Company - beat off competition from La Roux's In For the Kill, which stayed at number two.

In the albums chart, Bob Dylan is still at the top with Together Through Life, which made history last week when it got to number one - 29 years after his last top-selling UK album, New Morning.
