UK Chart Roundup: Justin Timberlake & Bastille Top Single, Album Charts

Justin Timberlake's "Mirrors" is not only #1 in the UK for a second week, the First Great Single Of 2013 has also reached #2 in Germany, #3 in South Korea and #4 in Denmark. Interestingly, "Suit & Tie" only managed to scrape its way to #25 in Germany.

On these shores, following JT's performance of "Mirrors" on Saturday Night Live last night, the song has flown back into the top 100 songs on US iTunes. (Currently, it's at #22.)

Elsewhere on the weekly UK singles roundup, 20-year-old Disney Channel minx Bridgit Mendler finally manages to have a hit somewhere, as her song "Ready Or Not" debuts at #7 seven months after it was released in the US.

Over on the album chart, Bastille's debut Bad Blood locks down the #1 position, as their latest single "Pompeii" drops merely one position to #3.

Here's the LP's title track — it's a good jam:
