Gary barlow's sing tops u.k. albums chart on diamond jubilee weekend
A collaborative project organised by TAKE THAT star GARY BARLOW to mark QUEEN ELIZABETH II's 60 years on the throne has shot to the top of the U.K. albums chart on her Diamond Jubilee weekend (02-03Jun12).
The British singer travelled around the world to record performances by musicians from all over the Commonwealth for Sing, which includes a title track penned by Barlow and theatre impressario Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, and features Prince Harry playing a tambourine.
The special compilation narrowly beat Paloma Faith's Fall To Grace to number one; she enters at two.
The top five albums on the countdown were all new entries - Rumer's Boys Don't Cry debuts at three, while the Scissor Sisters' Magic Hour and opera star Russell Watson's Anthems land at four and five, respectively.
In the U.K. singles chart, Feel The Love by electro act Rudimental shoots to first place, forcing fun's We Are Young hit into second.
The winner of the Eurovision Song Contest, Loreen, enters at three with Euphoria, the dance track which landed Sweden the 2012 title.
