LONDON, March 9 British DJ Route 94 hit the top
of Britain's music charts on Sunday as "My Love", his
collaboration with singer Jess Glynne, knocked U.S. star
Pharrell Williams into second place, the Official Charts Company
For Williams, the disappointment of losing the top spot was
tempered by the fact his new album "G I R L" was crowned the
week's top album, and the fastest-selling record of 2014 so far
after racking up sales of nearly 70,000 copies.
No other new entries made an impression at the top of the
album chart, as British singer Ellie Goulding rose to second
place, nudging last week's chart topper "Bad Blood" by Bastille
down to number three.
Glynne, the vocalist on Route 94's number one, also featured
on the week's third best-selling single "Rather Be" by Clean
Bandit. Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" and "Money On My Mind" by Sam
Smith completed the top five singles.
