Gotye holds the top spot

Belgian-Australian songsmith Gotye has recorded a second week at number one with his popular Somebody That I Used To Know.

The song, which features New Zealand star Kimbra co-performing the duet, fought off new entry Rockstar from Dappy featuring Brian May, which entered at number two.

Gotye, 31, whose real name is Wally De Backer, had previously been at number one with the song before it slipped to number three.

There were no other new entries in the top ten, the Official UK Charts Company said.

High climbers included Kelly Clarkson’s Stronger, which was up five places from 13 to eight.
