News Katy B Tops UK Album Chart With ‘Little Red’

Elsewhere, Clean Bandit remain number 1 in the singles and Temples score a high placing in the albums.

The UK album charts is enjoying another rosy-looking week, with previous toppers Bombay Bicycle Club being knocked off their well-deserved perch by Katy B. 'Little Red' - the follow-up to 2011 debut 'On A Mission' (which peaked at #2) - is her first ever number 1 record.

Brit School-taught and Peckham-raised, Katy's second record beat off competition from Ellie Goulding's chart favourite 'Halcyon'.

London Grammar's 'If You Wait' is up 1 place at #3, with Beyonce's S/T and Avicii's 'True' completing the top five.

Current DIY Weekly coverstars Temples achieved the second highest new entry with debut 'Sun Structures'.

In singles, Clean Bandit's 'Rather Be' stayed at the top for a remarkable fourth week running. It sold just over 8,000 more copies than Zedd's 'Stay the Night' (feat. Paramore's Hayley Williams).

Le Youth's new single 'Dance With Me' landed at #11, with Katy B also enjoying success in the singles chart with 'Crying For No Reason' reaching #5.
