Pop star Britney Spears made it to second place with her new single, Piece of Me.

Soulja Boy's Crank That fell one place to number three.

Lupe Fiasco's Superstar was the only new release in the top 20 singles chart this week. It went into the chart at number seven.

But it was a quiet week for album releases, meaning that Tom Baxter's Skybound had the only new entry within the top 40 at number 20.

Take That's Beautiful World is still in the top three after being re-released in November.

The self-titled album by Scouting for Girls moved from number 12 last week to fourth place this week, followed by Mika's Life in Cartoon Motion.

Albums by Robert Plant, Newton Faulkner, Amy Winehouse, Michael Buble and Leona Lewis completed the top 10.
