DJ and producer Calvin Harris has made chart history after becoming the first act to score eight top 10 hits from the same album.

The 29-year-old Scottish star clocked up his latest hit this week when his collaboration with Ellie Goulding, 'I Need Your Love', rose to number seven in the charts.

The song, from his album '18 Months', lifts Harris above Michael Jackson who achieved seven top 10 hits from his 1987 album 'Bad', and another seven from 1991's 'Dangerous'.

Martin Talbot, from the Official Charts Company, said: "Many artists only achieve a handful of hits in their entire careers, so for any act to secure three or four from one album is an excellent achievement.

"In turn, eight top 10s from one album is not just impressive, it is absolutely remarkable. And, of course, record breaking. Congratulations to Calvin Harris, the modern day hit-maker."

Among the hits from his impressive run are two number ones - 'We Found Love' with Rihanna and 'Sweet Nothing' featuring Florence Welch.

The album has sold more than 543,000 copies in the UK since its release in October.

Other acts who have come close to the record include Jessie J, whose debut album 'Who You Are' contained six top 10 hits, and Take That whose 1993 album 'Everything Changes' yielded six top 10 singles.
