Marina & the Diamonds + Lana Del Rey top UK Albums chart with "Electra Heart" + "Born to Die".


Marina Diamandis, AKA Marina And The Diamonds has scored her first Official Number 1 album.

The half Welsh / half Greek singer’s second album, Electra Heart, featuring Top 20 single Primadonna, claims first place today ahead of Lana Del Rey’s Born To Die (Number 2) – toppling last week’s chart topper Jack White from the summit of the Official Albums Chart.

The news will certainly cheer up Diamandis who was forced to postpone her upcoming UK tour earlier this week after being advised by doctors to rest her voice or risk permanently damaging her vocal chords. Marina And The Diamonds’ debut album, The Family Jewels, peaked at Number 5 when it was released in 2010.

Jack White’s critically-acclaimed Blunderbuss takes third place, while US singer songwriter Norah Jones is the second highest new entry of the week at Number 4 with new offering Little Broken Hearts. Adele’s mega-selling second album, 21, completes this week’s Official Albums Chart Top 5.
