Gary Barlow at No.1 in the albums chart, Usher is close behind with 'Looking 4 Myself'
Although Gary Barlow and the Commonwealth Band have managed to cling to the No.1 spot with their Diamond Jubilee album, 'Sing', there will be a battle to secure the top spot this weekend.
Today's midweek update (June 13) has left Barlow sitting pretty at No.1, but the Official Charts Company revealed that there are less than 1,400 separating the top 3 albums. Usher's 'Looking 4 Myself' has debuted at No.2 and Amy Macdonald's 'Life In A Beautiful Light' is close behind at 3.
Maximo Park have also entered the Top 10 at No.6 with their new offering, 'The National Health', Hot Chip are at No.9 with 'In Our Heads', and Fleetwood Mac's '25 Years The Chain' has made an appearance at 12.
Barlow took to social networking site Twitter this afternoon and told his 1.6 million followers that he had enjoyed his downtime earlier today: "Cracking yoga sesh this morning, now time for a cuppa."
