Kings of Leon


Kings of Leon have become Britain's best-selling artist online as their album 'Only by the Night' has been downloaded more than a quarter of a million times in the U.K. since its 2008 release.

Kings of Leon have seen off competition from Lady GaGa to be crowned Britain's best-selling artist online after reaching digital album sales of 250,000. The band's fourth album, "Only by the Night", has been downloaded more than a quarter of a million times in the U.K. since it was released in 2008.

And the figure makes the record Britain's best-selling digital album ever. Official Charts Company managing director Martin Talbot says, "The success of Kings of Leon illustrates the growing popularity of album downloading among music fans."

Lady GaGa's "The Fame" is currently in second place, and "Lungs" by Florence and the Machine is in third. "It's Not Me, It's You" by Lily Allen and Coldplay's "Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends" round out the top five.
