Calvin Harris breaks Michael Jackson UK chart record with '18 Months'

Calvin Harris has broken Michael Jackson's UK chart record for the most top ten singles from one album.

8 top 10s from my album 18 Months now! So happy!!!

Ellie Goulding collaboration 'I Need Your Love'. Jackson held the record previously with seven top ten hits from his 1987 LP Bad. The Scottish DJ and producer took to Twitter last night to celebrate his success.
His impressive chart run dates back to June 2011 when 'Bounce' featuring Kelis peaked at number two. He achieved another second placed single with 'Feel So Close' before hitting number one with Rihanna on 'We Found Love'.
His Ne-Yo collaboration 'Let's Go' also placed at number two at the beginning of last year. He followed that up by working with Example on 'We'll Be Coming Back', which also charted at number two in the UK.
He achieved another number one with Florence Welch on 'Sweet Nothing' before reaching number five earlier this year with Tinie Tempah track 'Drinking From The Bottle'.
Martin Talbot, the Official Charts Company's Managing Director, commented: "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."
18 Months has sold over 543,000 copies in the UK since it was released in October of last year. It topped the charts for two weeks before spending a total of ten weeks inside the top ten.
Jessie J, Lady GaGa and Katy Perry currently hold the record for a female singer, with six top ten singles from individual studio albums.
Take That hold the record for a group with six top ten hits from their 1993 album Everything Changes.
