Coldplay top UK charts with fifth studio album
LONDON, Oct 31 — British rock band Coldplay topped the album charts with their fifth studio album “Mylo Xyloto”, the Official UK Charts Company said yesterday.
Coldplay’s new album knocked former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher’s solo project, “Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds”, off the top spot. In third place was a new entry, “Christmas”, by Canadian singer Michael Buble.
Kelly Clarkson’s album “Stronger” entered the charts at No. 5, and Tom Waits’s “Bad As Me” entered in 10th place.
On the singles charts, the top two spots were taken by new entries. British rapper Professor Green’s “Read All About It”, featuring soul singer Emeli Sande, came in at No. 1, followed by “Earthquake” from singer-songwriter Labrinth, featuring rapper Tinie Tempah.
Last week’s No. 1 single, “We Found Love” by Rihanna, featuring Calvin Harris, fell to third place. — Reuters
