LONDON (REUTERS) - British rock band Muse scored their fifth British number one album on Sunday when Drones went straight into the chart in the top spot, the Official Charts Company said.

The cut, which features the singles Dead Inside and Mercy, sold almost 73,000 copies, pushing Florence & the Machine's How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful down one place to number two, and Collabro's Act Two to number three.

Jason Derulo's Want To Want Me was the top-selling single for the third consecutive week.

The track, which is Derulo's fourth chart-topper following In My Head in 2010, Don't Wanna Go Home in 2011 and Talk Dirty in 2013, ended the week with more than 11,000 sales over its nearest competitor, OMI's Cheerleader, the Official Charts Company said.
