LONDON (Reuters) - Veteran heavy metal rockers Iron Maiden topped the British charts on Friday with their 16th studio album "Book of Souls," the Official Charts Company said.

The band, led by Bruce Dickinson, last topped the charts in summer 2010 with "The Final Frontier."

British singer Jess Glynne’s "I Cry When I Laugh" held firm at Number 2 while last week’s Number 1 from The Weeknd, "The Beauty Behind The Madness," slipped to third.

On the singles chart, London-based DJ Sigala scored his first No. 1 with "Easy Love." Canada's Justin Bieber was at two with "What do you Mean" and Jess Glynne at three with "Don't be so Hard on Yourself."
