Chart Round Up Time!

Globe-trotting stars Coldplay have had their chart-slaying antics curbed after American hip hop act Ne-Yo stole the band's number one slot away from them.

Ne-Yo's single "Closer" is the new UK number one single, with Coldplay's "Viva La Vida" sliding to number two. The Top 40 is a barren place this week, with most bands presumably away playing Glastonbury and not releasing singles. There was, however, a new entry from Glasvegas, who breached the Top 20 with their single "Geraldine". Brooklyn electro kids MGMT soared in at number 31 with their new single "Electric Feel", while Black Kids sneaked into the Top 40 at 36 with new track "Hurricane Jane".

Better news for Chris Martin & Co. in the album charts, as Coldplay retain the number one slot. "Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends" was a transatlantic success story, and shows no sign of stopping on this side of the pond. Elsewhere in the charts, Icelandic wonders Sigur Ros are at number 5 with "Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust" and Paul Weller's slides two place to 7 with "22 Dreams". Further down the charts, American psycho blues-rockers Cage The Elephant burst into the Top 40 with their (really rather good) self-titled debut album.
