The Black Eyed Peas' latest single sampling a song from the hit film Dirty Dancing has climbed to the top of the charts.

The Time (Dirty Bit), which features "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" moved up from sixth place to secure the number one spot.

Film star Will Smith's 10-year-old daughter Willow entered the chart at number two with her debut tune Whip My Hair, the Official Charts Company said. A duet by the late King of Pop Michael Jackson and Akon called Hold My Hand was the only other new entry, going in at number 11.

Last week's biggest seller, the 2010 X Factor finalists' charity single Heroes, slipped to number seven.

Rihanna occupied four separate spots in the top 40 chart simultaneously as her single What's My Name featuring Drake moved up from eight to four, while Only Girl (In The World) climbed from seven to five. David Guetta's new track Who's That Chick, which features the Barbadian star, remained at number nine, while Eminem's song Love The Way You Lie also featuring her climbed from 40 to 30.

Former X Factor finalist Olly Murs dropped from four to eight with his single Thinking Of Me.

Boy band JLS, who were runners-up in the ITV competition in 2008, slipped from ten to 14 with their hit Love You More.

In the album charts, the quartet's offering Outta This World moved from three to five, while Murs' self-titled debut album dropped from two to three.

Take That continued their musical domination, claiming the top spot for a fourth week in a row with Progress. Michael Buble's offering Crazy Love climbed from eighth to second place, as Rihanna remained at four with Loud.
