Rita Ora has this week become the first star to score three consecutive No.1 singles, as latest release tops the chart, selling over 100,000 copies of latest release 'How We Do (Party)'.

The single shot straight to number one, knocking Wiley's aptly titled 'Heatwave' off the top as temperatures in the UK soared.

The success of 'How We Do', following on from Ora's collaboration with DJ Fresh on 'Hot Right Now' and her debut solo single 'R.I.P.' have established the young star as one of 2012's biggest successes.

Speaking to the Official Chart website, Ora said: "I can't believe I'm the first artist this year to have three number one singles in a row!"

"It's really inspiring, I really appreciate all the support I've been getting from my fans and the media. This is already the best year ever!"

Elsewhere in the Singles chart there were top ten entries for songs involved in the Olympic tracks from the likes of Emeli Sande, Kate Bush, Elbow, John Lennon, George Michael and Ed Sheeran.

Trey Songz and Porter Robinson both debuted in the top ten with their singles 'Simply Amazing' and 'Language' respectively.

Emeli Sande's success in the single chart was replicated in the Album Chart where her album 'Our Version Of Events' returned to the top spot following her huge exposure at the Olympic Games closing ceremony.

Other new album entries came from Ryan O'Shaughnessy, Spector, Madness, Don Broco and While She Sleeps.
