LONDON (Reuters) - English DJ Mark Ronson returned to the coveted number one spot in the British singles chart on Sunday with his track "Uptown Funk", featuring U.S. singer Bruno Mars, the Official Charts Company said.

The single, made for Ronson's upcoming fourth studio album "Uptown Special", also broke Britain's all-time streaming record by racking up almost 2.5 million audio streams over the last seven days.

Last week's chart topper, TV talent show winner Ben Haenow's "Something I Need" slipped to second place, while British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" held at number three.

Sheeran also had success in the album chart, which his second disc "X" topped for the twelfth non-consecutive week, ahead of Sam Smith's "In the Lonely Hour" and Olly Murs' "Never Been Better".
