Norwegian pop stars Nico & Vinz have made music history in the U.K. by climbing to the top of the singles chart with their catchy tune Am I Wrong. The track soars 51 places to knock Rude by Magic! from pole position, making the duo the first all-Norwegian band to hit number one since A-ha achieved the same feat in 1986 with their song The Sun Always Shines on TV. The highest new entry on the singles countdown comes from OneRepublic, who debut Love Runs Out at three. Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran continues to dominate the U.K.'s albums chart as X claims a seventh consecutive week in first place, with another non-mover, Blue Smoke - The Best Of by Dolly Parton, sitting at two. Sam Smith's In The Lonely Hour is at three, while Coldplay's Ghost Stories and Wanted On Voyage by George Ezra round out the top five at fourth and fifth place, respectively.
