Calvin Harris has broken Official Chart records by scoring eight top 10 hits all from the same album.
The Acceptable in the 80s singer, who broke the record with his most recent hit I Need Your Love ft. Ellie Goulding, has knocked superstar Michael Jackson off the top spot. Jackson previously held the record for seven top 10 hits from two of his albums, Bad and Dangerous.
I Need Your Love was released eleven weeks ago, but climbed four places to make number seven in last week’s Official Singles Chart. Afterwards, the star took to twitter to proclaim himself the new king of pop:
