Capitalfm.com takes a look at every number one on the Vodafone Big Top 40 in 2011.
Rihanna and Jessie J are among the artists who dominated the Vodafone Big Top 40 in 2011.
To mark a whirlwind last twelve months on the charts, capitalfm.com has unveiled a round-up of every number one of the year.
Rihanna started the year as she carried on by being the first artist to top the countdown in 2011 with 'What's My Name' featuring Drake.
She was then replaced by Bruno Mars, whose hit 'Grenade' went on to stay at the one for four consecutive weeks, despite competition from Adele, Cheryl Cole, Britney Spears, Wretch 32 and Taio Cruz.
Lady Gaga became the fourth chart-topper of 2011 with the title track from her second album 'Born This Way'.
Jennifer Lopez also enjoyed chart success this year with 'On The Floor' featuring Pitbull enjoying a three-week reign at number one, while Example's 'Changed The Way You Kissed Me' also spent three weeks at the top.
Maroon 5's 'Moves Like Jagger' first topped the Vodafone Big Top 40 chart in early September 2011, before being knocked off the top spot by 'What Makes You Beautiful', the debut single from One Direction.
But it climbed back to the number one spot and held it for a further two consecutive weeks.
As the year came to an end, it was Rihanna who enjoyed more success, with 'We Found Love', the first single from her new album 'Talk That Talk', topping the Vodafone Big Top 40.
