Number one singles sell very few in the UK

It's about that, and the fact that more money was spent promoting that product than any other music

What other piece of music can boast that they were promoted via a commercial over 200 times a day on terrestrial?

What Bev said.

Furthermore whilst still having space for 'credible music' (whatever that might be) the UK charts have a LOOONG history of highly placed novelty acts. Nothing new there.

Chris Martin of Coldplay is probably a bit pissed off, although the number one album-spot in 28 countries (including the UK) might make up for it in a small way.
