Alicia Keys will also be looking to topple last week's chart topper Bruno Mars this week.

One Direction will be aiming to score their second Vodafone Big Top 40 number one from new album 'Take Me Home' this weekend with 'Little Things'.

After their second studio record was released on Monday, the track shot straight up the iTunes chart and the band will be looking to hold onto that position when new songs by Alicia Keys and Olly Murs go on sale.

The US star makes her return with the title track from forthcoming album 'Girl On Fire' and Olly is back with his Flo Rida collaboration 'Troublemaker'.

Last week's number one Bruno Mars will also be hoping to make it two weeks at the top of the chart with new single 'Locked Out Of Heaven'.

Labrinth will also be looking to climb back to the top of the chart with the Emeli Sande featuring 'Beneath Your Beautiful'.

Meanwhile, One Direction are on course to claim their second US album number one with their latest record predicting to go straight into the top of the American charts.

Taylor Swift recently claimed the best first week sales since 2002 after her album 'Red' sold 1.2 million copies after it became available.
