American pop-rock group Maroon 5 are top of the British album charts for the second time with It Won't be Soon Before Long.

Five years after debut studio album Songs About Jane hit the number one spot, the Los Angeles five-piece have ousted Linkin Park's Minutes to Midnight as the highest-selling album in the UK.

The dramatic developments in the album chart are in stark contrast to its singles equivalent, which sees only one change in the top five.

Umbrella by Rihanna and featuring Jay-Z remains at number one, with Maroon 5's Makes Me Wonder and Beyonce and Shakira's Beautiful Liar still at two and three respectively.

Hellogoodbye's Here (In Your Arms) rises one place to four, as do Gym Class Heroes with Cupid's Chokehold.

Top ten UK singles.

1 Umbrella  Rihanna featuring Jay-Z (1)
2 Makes Me Wonder  Maroon 5 (2)
3 Beautiful Liar  Beyonce and Shakira (3)
4 Here (In Your Arms)  Hellogoodbye (5)
5 Cupid's Chokehold  Gym Class Heroes (6)
6 Don't Matter  Akon (7)
7 Signal Fire  Snow Patrol (4)
8 Give it to Me  Timbaland featuring Nelly Furtado and Justin Timberlake (9)
9 Real Girl  Mutya Buena (11)
10 Shine  Booty Luv (10)

Top five UK albums.

1 It Won't be Soon Before Long  Maroon 5 (new entry)
2 Minutes to Midnight  Linkin Park (1)
3 Back to Black  Amy Winehouse (6)
4 Call me Irresponsible  Michael Buble (5)
5 Life in Cartoon Motion  Mika (7)
