Second time lucky for dance anthem

Dance anthem Tsunami (Jump) by DVBBS and Borgeous has stormed into the singles top spot despite failing to make waves the first time it was released last year.
The track featuring Tinie Tempah pushed last week's number one, My Love by Route 94 featuring Jess Glynne, into second place. It is Canadian duo DVBBS (pronounced 'Dubbs') and Miami DJ and producer Borgeous's first UK number one and the fourth for Tinie Tempah.
His last number one was featuring on Rita Ora's R.I.P. following success with his debut single Pass Out and Written In The Stars which also reached the top.
Tsunami proved popular in Europe and topped the charts in Belgium and The Netherlands and was in the Top 10 in other countries including Denmark, France, Sweden and Switzerland.
DVBBS told BBC Radio 1's Official Chart show host Jameela Jamil it was "amazing" to reach the top spot.
Pharrell Williams's feel-good hit Happy is this week's number three while Spanish crooner Enrique Iglesias goes straight into number four with I'm A Freak.
Other new entries to the singles chart include Flo Rida at number eight with How I Feel followed by Pixie Lott with her latest tune Nasty in ninth place.
Pop princess Kylie's first single in two years, Into The Blue, failed to enter the top 10, debuting at number 12, the Official UK Charts Company said.
One of the week's biggest climbers was Selfie by The Chainsmokers which climbed 25 p laces to Number 17.
Meanwhile, original Britpoppers Elbow have soared straight to the top of the charts with their latest album, The Take Off And Landing Of Everything. The album is the quintet's sixth, and has been described as a love letter to both New York and their home town of Manchester.
It relegates last week's number one, Pharrell Williams's GIRL to third place with Paloma Faith's latest offering, A Perfect Contradiction, debuting at number two.
Other new additions to the top 40 include Metronomy's Love Letters at number seven, while 1970s American rockers Dr Hook went straight to number 11 with Timeless, a 40-track collection of chart hits, love songs and lesser known gems from their extensive repertoire, more than 40 years on from their 1971 debut and seven years since their last top 20 album.
Dr Hook lead singer and guitarist Dennis Locorriere said he was "absolutely thrilled" at reaching number 11.
He added: "A lot of love has gone into creating this collection and it's great to know the UK fans are enjoying listening to the songs as much as I enjoyed putting the album together."
