LONDON (REUTERS) - Pharrell Williams and his song Happy reclaimed the number one spot in the British music singles chart on Sunday, knocking Timber by fellow Americans Pitbull and Ke$ha into second place, the Official Charts Company said.

Happy sold over 107,000 copies to occupy the top spot for a second non-consecutive week, having been dethroned by Timber the previous week. Pharrell Williams had scored the two biggest-selling singles of 2013.

Among the fastest climbers in the singles chart was Beyonce, whose Drunk In Love, a collaboration with her husband Jay Z, jumped 17 places to take the number 10 spot. It was Beyonce's 16th top 10 hit in Britain.

British singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding held onto the number one spot in the official albums chart for a second week with Halcyon, keeping Beyonce's self-titled album at bay in second place.
