David Guetta is No. 1 on the U.K. singles chart for the fifth time as a lead artist, after debuting at the summit yesterday (Aug. 24) with “Lovers On The Sun” (Parlophone/Warner Music), featuring Sam Martin. Ed Sheeran’s eight-week run atop the album chart with X (Asylum/Warner Music) was finally ended by “Britain’s Got Talent” winners Collabro, the musical theater quintet, with Stars (Syco Music/Sony).
Guetta’s U.K. scorecard is now five No. 1s as the headline artist in four years, stretching back to the June 2009 No. 1 “When Love Takes Over,” featuring Kelly Rowland. Norwegian duo Nico & Vinz’s “Am I Wrong” (Warner Bros./Warner Music) fell to No. 2 after two weeks on top, with MAGIC!’s “Rude” (RCA/Sony) down 2-3.
