Bieber’s "What Do You Mean" (Def Jam) first hit No. 1 three weeks ago in the U.K. and was dethroned by Sigala’s "Easy Love" (Ministry of Sound) before returning to the summit for a second week last Friday.
Meanwhile, Gilmour is in pole position on the Official U.K. Albums Chart with Rattle That Lock (Columbia), the guitar great’s fourth solo studio set. It’s a familiar position for Gilmour. He was last at No. 1 less than a year ago when Pink Floyd’s final album The Endless River bowed in the top slot.
Gilmour has worked on six chart-topping albums with Pink Floyd, including 1973's Dark Side Of The Moon, which has sold more than 4 million copies and came in at No. 7 of the U.K.’s all-time best-sellers list, published by the OCC last year.
His self-titled debut solo album dropped in 1978 and About Face arrived in 1984. His third set, On An Island, hit No. 1 in the U.K. and No. 6 in the U.S. following its release in 2006.
The U.K.'s singles sales and albums charts are compiled by the Official Charts Company, based on sales of downloads, CDs, vinyl and audio streams. The new charts are published late Friday local time.
