Chart round-up: Uptown Funk maintains its reign


Mark Ronson (feat. Bruno Mars) has done it again and made this week’s number one in the UK singles chart, making it his fourth consecutive week at the top spot. The massively catchy ‘Wish You Were Mine’ from Philip George narrowly misses out on number one, making number two. Ed Sheeran a non-mover in the chart this week with ‘Thinking out Loud’ remaining at number three, solidifying his incredible twenty-eighth week in the charts.

The X Factor winner Ben Haenow has moved down two positions to fourth place with his track ‘Something I Need’. Taylor Swift has also moved down in the chart to fifth place with ‘Blank Space’, which marks her tenth week in the charts also. ‘Up’ from Olly Murs, which features Demi Lovato, is in at sixth position this week and Meghan Trainor’s ‘All About That Bass’ is still clinging on at number seven.

The return of Take That remains in the singles chart with ‘These Days’ making eighth place this week. Following on at number nine comes ‘Heroes’ (or more accurately titled) ‘We Could Be’ from Alesso featuring Tove Lo. Finishing up the chart is Hozier’s ‘Take Me To Church’, which has moved up thirteen places to make tenth position and marks his twenty-third week in the charts.

In this week’s album chart, Sam Smith has moved up two places to once more make the coveted number one spot and marks over thirty weeks in the chart for his successful debut; In The Lonely Hour. The hugely popular x from Ed Sheeran is a non-mover at second place, followed by George Ezra’s debut Wanted on Voyage.

Fourth position goes to Taylor Swift with her global success 1989, another non-mover in the prestigious top five. Never Been Better from Olly Murs moves up one place this week to make number five. Paloma Faith’s A Perfect Contradiction has fallen one position to sixth place, closely followed by One Direction with their latest album FOUR which has moved up two positions this week.

Finishing this week’s album chart is Ella Henderson with Chapter One, Paolo Nutini with his incredible second album Caustic Love, and Hozier who, similarly to the singles chart, makes the tenth position with his self-titled debut.
