Ne-Yo knocks Coldplay from top spot

Ne-Yo has knocked Coldplay from the top of the singles chart with his track Closer.

The song overtook sales for Coldplay's single Viva La Vida to give the US singer-songwriter his second number one in the UK.

Viva La Vida, the second single from the album of the same name, went straight to the top of the charts last week on downloads alone.

Elsewhere, Jordin Sparks was the highest new entry with his single No Air, while Chris Brown's song Forever climbed one place to number four.

The album charts saw the top three remain static, with Coldplay, Duffy and Neil Diamond staying put, while Darren Styles' Skydivin' went straight in at number four.

In related news, Coldplay are planning to give away a free song on their winter tour.

The band wants to give away an unreleased track to fans who have bought a ticket for the UK shows, reports the BBC.
