The newly-released single sold 139,000 copies to knock
"Happy" by Pharrell Williams off the top spot and into second
place, the Official Charts Company said.
Chart-toppers Ke$ha and Pitbull have each held the number one
title twice before with solo singles or collaborations, but
neither had hit the number one spot for more than two years
Avicii and Jason Derulo held on to third and fourth places
respectively while British singer Ellie Goulding climbed to
fifth spot with her charity single "How long will I love you".
Goulding had more to celebrate after racking up her second
number one album with "Halcyon" — an album first released in
October 2012 and re-released in August 2013.
Its slow rise to the top pushed last week's number one artist,
Robbie Williams, down to fourth, with Gary Barlow holding onto
second place and Beyonce remaining at number three. John
Newman's album "Tribute" made up the top five.
