Florence and the Machine Topped U.K. Albums Chart


Florence and the Machine Topped U.K. Albums Chart


After being kept from the top spot by Michael Jackson, Florence and the Machine finally have reigned the British album chart with their debut album 'Lungs'.

Cult act Florence and the Machine have topped the British album chart 28 weeks after making their debut with "Lungs". Singer Florence Welch and her band debuted the record at number two back in July 2009, but they were no competition for Michael Jackson, who kept the group from the top spot for five weeks following his death in June 2009.

Meanwhile, another acclaimed indie act, Vampire Weekend debut at three on the new countdown with "Contra" - a place behind Paolo Nutini's "Sunny Side Up".

In Britain's new singles chart, Iyaz's "Replay" claims a second week at number one - ahead of Owl City's "Fireflies" and "Riverside" by Sidney Samson. It's also a good week for Journey's soft rock anthem "Don't Stop Believin'" - the cast of hit U.S. TV show "Glee"'s cover of the 1981 hit is at five on the new chart, while the original is at six.
