One Direction shoot to top spot in singles charts

  • by JOHN FAHEY
 

Boyband One Direction crashed in at the top of the singles charts with their cover of Blondie’s One Way Or Another.

The X Factor-created popsters knocked last week’s number one, I Could Be The One, by Avicii vs Nicky Romero into fifth spot.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’s Thrift Shop was unmoved at number two in this week’s charts while Baauer’s Harlem Shake, the song behind the latest internet dance craze, remained at number three. The song has clocked up millions of listens on YouTube through thousands of “meme” parody videos.

The biggest climber, after his appearance at the Brit Awards, was Ben Howard with Only Love. Last week, the single was in 190th spot but now finds itself at number nine after he wowed the Brits audience last week. The Devon-based singer-songwriter, who won British Breakthrough Act and British Male Solo Artist, also saw his 2011 album Every Kingdom rocket to number four from 46th position, according to the Official Charts Company.
