Maroon 5, Justin Bieber Collect Their Very First UK # 1’s!

Major MAJOR chart battle this week in the UK y’all! It was a fight to the finish between Beliebers and Soldiers, as Justin Bieber’s ‘Believe‘ narrowly raced ahead of Cheryl Cole’s ‘A Million Lights‘ (barely 3000 copies more) to land in at # 1 on the UK Top 40 Albums Chart! ‘Believe‘ thus becomes Bieber’s first # 1 album in the UK.

Flawlessness Cheryl, who topped the singles chart last week with ‘Call My Name‘ – the fastest selling # 1 single in the UK so far, enters the UK Top 40 Albums Chart at # 2, thus narrowly missing out on a hat-trick third consecutive # 1 album. Her 2009 d├ębut ‘3 Words‘ and 2010 follow-up ‘Messy Little Raindrops‘ both debuted at # 1.

Call My Name‘ is pushed down a spot to # 2 this week on the UK Top 40 Singles Chart by none other than Maroon 5 as ‘Payphone‘ featuring Wiz Khalifa debuts at # 1, landing the band their very first UK # 1 single!
