LONDON (Reuters) - U.S. glam diva Lady Gaga took top spot in singles pop charts on Sunday, emulating the success of her debut release.

Flo Rida’s “Right Round” featuring Kesha stayed in second place ahead of the Comic Relief single, a reworking of the 1980s Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers hit featuring Welsh singer Tom Jones and Robin Gibb from the Bee Gees, who wrote the original.
British girl group The Saturdays dropped a place to fourth with “Just Can’t Get Enough” while American country-pop singer Taylor Swift remained in fifth with “Love Story.”
In the album charts, Ronan Keating, a member of Irish boy band Boyzone, went straight in at number one with his latest solo release “Songs For My Mother.”
Annie Lennox stayed second with “The Collection” while The Kings of Leon climbed back to third with “Only By The Night” which has now enjoyed 26 weeks in the charts.
“Faryl,” the self-titled debut release by British teenage opera singer Faryl Smith, who found fame on the “Britain’s Got Talent” reality TV show, climbed two places to fourth with “The Circus” by reformed boy band Take That in fifth.
