Wiz Khalifa holds onto number one for sixth week

Wiz Khalifa has scored a sixth week at the top of the pop charts with his Paul Walker tribute anthem See You Again.

Meanwhile, on the album chart, the Pitch Perfect 2 soundtrack debuts at number one, becoming the third soundtrack to reach the top of the countdown this year (15) - behind hip-hop drama Empire and Furious 7.


Last week’s (ends17May15) number one album, Mumford & Sons’ Wilder Mind, slips a spot to two, the Fifty Shades of Gray soundtrack moves back into the top five at three and David Guetta’s new album Listen jumps up from 30 to four.
