The article reports that the accomplished singer Elvis Presley brought to a close one chapter of the Great Britain's singles chart by securing the 100th number one in the history of Great Britain. The legendary artist's reissued "One Night," which originally hit the top in 1959 replaced the King's "Jailhouse Rock," at number one to reach the chart's very own millennium more than half a century after the countdown began. The track is also the 300th to debut at number one, and makes Presley the first artist since John Lennon in 1981 to replace himself at the top of the chart.
