Dumfries DJ and producer Calvin Harris has made chart history after becoming the first act to score eight top ten hits from the same album.
The songwriting star clocked up his latest hit when his collaboration with Ellie Goulding, "I need your love", reached number seven in the charts.
The song, which is from his album "18 months", means that Harris has surpassed Michael Jackson who achieved seven top ten hits with his 1987 album "bad".
The album has sold more than 543,000 copies in the UK since its release in October.
Martin Talbot, from the Official Charts Company, said:
"Many artists only achieve a handful of hits in their entire careers, so for any act to secure three or four from one album is an excellent achievement.
"In turn, eight top 10s from one album is not just impressive, it is absolutely remarkable. And, of course, record breaking. Congratulations to Calvin Harris, the modern day hit-maker."
Calvin Harris has collaborated with an impressive array of stars, including Rihanna and Florence Welch, with songs like "We found love" and "Sweet nothing".

Temporary lodgings are being sought for Kendal's Quaker Tapestry as its current home at Georgian Friends Meeting House as repairs are carried out on the building.
The building has been damaged by the harsh cumbrian weather. The Grade II listed building needs £25,000 worth of repairs.
The work leaves the centre without an exhibition space and without a homes for the tapestry.
– Bridget Guest, Centre Manager,
"We've just finished a major textile conservation project to re-mount and frame every single one of the 77 tapestry panels.
"This means they are better protected and far more portable. More importantly, we are now well equipped to mount a temporary exhibition in venues around Kendal."
"Whilst we can display some of the panels in an adjacent room, the Friends Meeting Room, we need to find a temporary home for more of the embroidered panels. If we can find an empty town centre shop we can turn this disaster into something good by taking the panels to the people."
