Despite the whole world going insane over Justin Timberlake's sudden return to the world of music, 50 Cent has officially pipped him to the number one spot in the UK singles chart. Well, at least in the midweeks anyway.

50 Cent beats Justin Timberlake to number one spot in UK singles midweek chart

If JT making it to number one is a large goal in your life, you've still got a few days to panic buy his new single Suit & Tie as it only charted in the number three spot in the midweeks.

It was 50 Cent who managed to knock Wil.I.Am and Britney's Scream and Shout off the top spot, with his new track My Life.

The rest of the chart has held pretty steady this week - the next highest entry is Biffy Clyro's new track Black Chandelier, which is in at a cosy number 11.

One Direction are up two at number 10 and Taylor Swift's I Knew You Were Trouble has dropped 2 places into number four after a whopping 15 weeks in the chart.

Over in the album chart it's a completely different story though, with the Les Miserables soundtrack ousting Emeli Sande and climbing four places to number one on its second week in the chart.

So what do you think - reckon JT can make it to number one? Reckon the Harry and Swifty break up has affected their chart positions?
