Mike Posner has scored a second week at number one with his dance track I Took a Pill in Ibiza.

The single sold 82,000 combined copies last week, around half of which came from the song's 4.1 million streams.

The sales put I Took a Pill in Ibiza about 11,000 copies ahead of its closest rival - 7 Years by Lukas Graham.

It's the second UK hit for 28-year-old Posner - his debut single Cooler Than Me reached number five in 2010.

Posner said: "To be number one in the UK is quite an honour.

"It's very flattering to know this many people are listening to my music and enjoying it enough to give me money for it."
