LONDON (REUTERS) – Scottish singer and DJ Calvin Harris hit the top of the British music charts on Sunday with his newly released single Summer, knocking Dutch artist Mr Probz into second place, the official Charts Company said.

Harris outsold Mr Probz’s Waves by 7,000 copies to claim the latest in a string of chart successes – his sixth number one as a singer or collaborating artist, with another two chart-toppers under his belt as a producer/DJ.

Kiesza’s Hideaway dropped one place to number three, with Nobody To Love by Sigma falling to fourth and John Legend’s“All Of Me” completing the top five singles of the week.

Another Scot, Paolo Nutini, held onto the number one berth in the album charts for a third straight week with Caustic Love, holding off the challenge of new entry Everyday Robots by former Blur front man Damon Albarn.
