LONDON (Reuters) - Veteran boy band Take That’s single “Greatest Day” has stormed into the pop charts at No. 1, displacing Beyonce’s “If I were a boy,” the Official Charts Company said this week.

It is the band’s 11th number one hit and their first since “Shine” in March 2007.

It was all change at the top of the album chart, with new entries taking the top three positions.

The Killers’ “Day & Age” took top spot, followed by heavy rock legends Guns’n’Roses’ “Chinese Democracy” and former X Factor contestant Rhydian’s self-titled album at number three.

Leona Lewis’ “Spirit’ slips to number four after 55 weeks in the album chart.
