Maroon 5′s new single ‘Payphone’ has become their first UK Number One.
Just over 141k copies of the ode to bygone technology have been bought since Sunday, according to Music Week, making it the third-fastest-selling single of 2012 so far, behind Gary Barlow’s ‘Sing’ and Cheryl ‘Cheryl’ Cole’s ‘Call My Name’.
Cheryl herself is at Number 2 with ‘Call My Name’, while poet Flo Rida is at 3 with gentle ode to love ‘Whistle’.
In the world of albums, Cheryl’s LP ‘A Million Lights’ has been beaten to Number One by Justin ‘Lil Swaggy’ Bieber’s new collection of songs, ‘Believe’, which is probably a bit annoying as it would have been her third consecutive Number One album had this not have happened.
Meanwhile US ‘country superstar’and ex-American Idol contestant Carrie Underwood is at Number 11 with new album ‘Blown Away’, following a nice performance at The Royal Albert Hall in London last week.
