The duo’s latest track Changing, which features Paloma Faith, topped the Official Singles Chart last night having sold more than 100,000 copies in its first week.
Sigma (aka Cameron Edwards and Joe Lenzie) enjoyed similar success earlier this year when their track Nobody to Love – a remix of Kanye West’s Bound 2 – also topped the charts on release.
They said: ‘We never thought we’d get in the charts to be honest so to have two number ones is just unbelievable!
‘We’ve also just been reliably informed by the Official Charts Company that we’re the first act to have two consecutive number ones this year that have both sold over 100,000 copies in the first week. Thank you very much to everyone who has supported us and bought the records.’
Changing is Paloma Faith’s first ever number one. She said: ‘It’s amazing that this is my first UK number one that I’ve achieved. I’ve done three albums so far so it just goes to show that if you hang in there, something’s got to give at some point!’
There was also a new number one in the album chart, with Irish pop-rockers The Script’s record No Sound Without Silence beating Barbra Streisand’s Partners. Sam Smith’s debut In the Lonely Hour slipped to third place.
