Chart round up: Meghan Trainor is back


This week’s UK Singles Chart sees Mark Ronson’s (feat Bruno Mars) toe-tapper ‘Uptown Funk’ hold out at the coveted number one spot. Meghan Trainor has climbed up forty-eight positions with her latest single ‘Lips are Movin’ making second place, whilst Hozier follows with his massive ‘Take Me To Church’ at number three.

Philip George’s track ‘Wish You Were Mine’ has moved down three places but still remains in the top ten, as does ‘Up’ from Olly Murs featuring Demi Lovato which has similarly moved down one place to make this week’s number five. The hugely successful ‘Thinking Out Loud’ from Ed Sheeran remains in the charts at number six, which solidifies over 30 weeks in the charts for this track. ‘Heroes (We Could Be)’ from Alesso featuring Tove Lo is a non-mover and remains at seventh position.

Finishing up the UK Singles Chart are tracks from Avicii, Taylor Swift and X-Factor contestant Ben Haenow.

The UK Album Chart shows similar patterns as previous weeks, with a few new additions; Mark Ronson’s latest album drop Uptown Special debuts at number one this week. The number two spot goes to yet another new release, this time from Fall Out Boy with American Beauty/American Psycho. Ed Sheeran has moved down one position to number three with his hugely successful X, similarly Sam Smith’s massive In The Lonely Hour has dropped one position to fourth.

Wanted On Voyage from George Ezra remains in the top ten at number five, followed closely by a new entry from Enter Shikari, The Mindsweep. Seventh position goes to Taylor Swift and her hugely popular album 1989.

Hozier’s self-titled debut has moved down three places to number eight, followed on by a new entry from indie pop group Belle and Sebastian titled Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance. Olly Murs finishes up the UK Album Chart at number ten with Never Been Better.
