LONDON Aug 17 Norwegian double act Nico & Vinz
held onto the top spot in Britain's music charts on Sunday for a
second week with their single "Am I Wrong", the Official Charts
The success of the Oslo-based duo, Nico Sereba and Vincent
Dery, both former school teachers, mean they are the first
Norwegian act to have a number one hit in Britain since A-ha's
"The Sun always Shines on TV" nearly 29 years ago.
"Rude" by Magic! remained in second place, while American
band OneRepublic stayed in third place with "Love Runs Out".
In the albums chart, Ed Sheeran's spell at the top continued
for an eighth week as "X" continued to outsell its rivals,
making it the longest running number one album of the year so
Dolly Parton fell one place to number three with "Blue Smoke
- The Best Of", swapping places with Sam Smith whose track "In
the Lonely Hour" moved up a slot into second place.
