UK Singles Chart, March 5, 2011

1. Someone Like You - Adele

Adele holds the #1 spot for a second week with "Someone Like You." She also manages to keep her other single in the top 5, "Rolling in the Deep," which holds at #4. On the albums chart, 21 spends a fifth week at #1, while her 19 climbs two spots to #2, the highest that album has charted since its release 3 years ago.

3. S&M - Rihanna

Rihanna climbs 3 spots to #3 making "S&M" her third consecutive top 5 hit from Loud, making that album her first to score three top 5 hits in a row. "S&M" is the only new track in the top 5 this week.

6. Good Girl - Alexis Jordan

New face Alexis Jordan follows her recent #3 hit "Happiness" with a second top 10 hit, "Good Girl." Both are from her self-titled debut, released tomorrow.

8. Born This Way - Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga takes a 5-spot tumble with "Born This Way," the only single from last week's top 5 not to stay there. The track's 3-3-8 chart record has to be seen as a bit disappointing for such a key release. They better get the video out quick.

10. F**kin' Perfect - Pink

Pink climbs into the top 10 for the first time with "F**kin' Perfect," making the single her 15th top 10 hit. Her last single, "Raise Your Glass," missed the top 10, peaking at #13.

22. Singin' in the Rain/Umbrella - Glee Cast feat. Gwyneth Paltrow
(31. Forget You - Glee Cast feat. Gwyneth Paltrow)

Gwyneth Paltrow's guest appearance on Glee was a big hit (a second appearance is scheduled for this spring), so it's no surprise that it gives Glee the highest-charting single of the second season so far.

23. The Last Dance - Clare Maguire

British pop singer Clare Maguire makes her top 40 debut with "The Last Dance," the second single from her debut album, Light After Dark, out tomorrow.
