    Cheryl sets solo record with fifth No. 1 single


    BRITISH singer Cheryl claimed the No. 1 spot in the Official Singles Chart UK Top 100 on Sunday, setting a record for the number of chart-topping songs by a solo female artist, the Official Charts Company said.

    I Don't Care became Cheryl's fifth No. 1, pushing Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud into second place and Meghan Trainor's All About That Bass into third.

    All Of Me by John Legend charted in fourth, ahead of Taylor Swift's Shake It Off.

    Sheeran, however, returned to the top of the album charts with X, 20 weeks after it was first released, holding off the challenge of new entry Motion from Calvin Harris, which ended up in second place.

    Former No. 1 album 1989 by Taylor Swift fell to third place, ahead of Andre Rieu's Love In Venice, which entered the chart in fourth place. In The Lonely Hour by Sam Smith completed the top five.
