Barbados group Cover Drive have gone straight to the top of the UK singles chart with their track Twilight.

The quartet - who have supported fellow Bajan Rihanna - had their first Top 10 single, Lick Ya Down, last September.

Twilight held off a challenge from David Guetta's song Titanium, featuring Australian singer Sia, which rose to number two.

Sia features on another track in this week's chart, making a guest spot on Flo-Rida's Wild Ones at number five.

Last week's number one, Domino by Jessie J, dropped to third place, with Mama Do The Hump by Rizzle Kicks at number four.

Belgian-Australian musician Gotye had the highest climber with his song Somebody That I Used To Know, which spent eight weeks at number one in Australia last year and has now risen from 21 to seven in the UK.

In the album chart, compiled by the Official Chart Company, singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has returned to number one with his record +.

Crooner Chris Isaak has the highest new entry at six with Beyond the Sun, a tribute to Sun Records artists including Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison.
