With midweek chart leader Take A Chance On Me by JLS unable to sustain the challenge which would have made it their sixth number one, there is a return to the summit instead for Rihanna’s sixth number one, the Calvin Harris collaboration, We Found Love, after a two week absence.

Its sales falling just 2.70% week-on-week as its radio and TV exposure reach new peaks, We Found Love rebounds 2-1 on sales of 79,834 copies to secure its fourth week at the summit.

It’s the 37th single in 58 years of chart history to return to number one during the same chart run. Its overall sales of 534,191 copies place it seventh in the Rihanna canon, and lift her overall singles sales since 2005 debut Pon De Replay to a staggering 11,594,209.
