Justin Timberlake beats David Bowie in UK chart

London: Justin Timberlake`s album, `The 20/20 Experience` has gone straight to the top of the UK chart, knocking David Bowie`s comeback LP off the summit.

This is the third solo album of Timberlake, the BBC reported.

But Timberlake`s song Mirrors has lost the top spot and dropped to number 2 spot in the singles chart.

It got replaced by The Saturdays` What About Us, the girl group`s first number one after five years of trying.

Meanwhile, Timberlake`s album sold almost 106,000 copies - more than the rest of the top five combined.

Elsewhere on the album chart, Emeli Sande is still at number three with Our Version of Events, while the soundtrack to Les Miserables has gone back up to number four.

According to the Official Charts Company, other new entries include British indie survivors Suede at 10 with Bloodsports and singer-songwriter Billy Bragg at 13 with Tooth and Nail.
