The Black Eyed Peas man knocks Maroon 5 from the top of the chart with his latest single.

Will.i.am's new single 'This Is Love' has been named the new Vodafone Big Top 40 number one.

The 'Great Times' singer dethroned last week's chart toppers Maroon 5 with his latest release which he premiered for the first time in the world on Capital last month.

The track ended the one week run of Adam Levine and co with their debut effort from new album 'Overexposed' which dropped to the number two spot.

The second highest new entry on the chart came from R&B star Chris Brown with his latest release 'Don't Wake Me Up'.

Fun enjoyed their 11th week inside the top ten with 'We Are Young' and Conor Maynard re-entered the chart with 'Can't Say No' rising to take the number 11 spot.

Alex Clare also rose seven places from 23 to 16 with 'Too Close' and there were also re-entries into the chart from Ed Sheeran with 'Small Bump' and Pitbull with the Men In Black 3 theme 'Back In Time'.

Meanwhile, Will recently confirmed that he is currently writing a new song to accompany a Mars Mission with the track being beamed back to earth once a rocket lands on the red planet.
