CHART TOPPERS

David Bowie's surprise comeback track has made it to number six in the UK singles chart, despite fears it could miss out completely.

After finding a way to break down sales of single 'Where Are We Now?' from Bowie's new album 'The Next Day', the song made it into the Official Charts.

However, Bowie lost out on a number one to Will.i.am, who secured his second UK number one single as a lead artist with 'Scream and Shout' - featuring Britney Spears - climbing from number two.

In the album charts, Emeli Sande's debut 'Our Version Of Events' returned to the top days after she earned herself four Brit Award nominations.
