Bruno's latest record has shifted 136,000 copies in the last week, making it the fastest-selling album ahead of the likes of Rihanna and One Direction who have released some of the year's biggest albums.

The title comes as the album's lead single 'Locked Out Of Heaven' topped the US Billboard charts last week, giving him his fourth number one in the country, while the song has slipped one place to number three after spending two weeks in second place.

Meanwhile, X Factor champ James Arthur has debuted at number one with his winner's single 'Impossible' which has become the fastest-selling single of the year, shifting almost half a million copies.
