Bieber's protegee lands UK number one

Former Canadian Idol runner-up Carly Rae Jepsen has landed the number one spot in Britain with Call Me Maybe after a video of Bieber and his girlfriend Selena Gomez dancing to the track went viral.

Bieber gave Jepsen a boost by inviting her to join his manager Scooter Braun's Schoolboy Records in February.

Elsewhere in the singles chart, Sean Paul was at two with She Doesn't Mind, while dance star Gotye rose two places to three with Somebody That I Used To Know.

In fourth place was Nicki Minaj with Starships, while former number one Turn Up The Music by Chris Brown, rounded out the new top five.

In the album chart, Minaj makes another appearance after her record Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded debuted at number one.

The other top five albums are Labrinth (Electronic Earth), Adele (21), Moshi Monsters (Music Box) and Emeli Sande (Our Version of Events).
