Chart round-up: Meghan Trainor tops the album charts


In this week’s single chart, Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars continue their reign, holding onto the top spot for yet another week. Hozier jumps one place to second position with his hit single ‘Take Me To Church’. Fergie enters the top 40 in third place with her new single ‘L.A. Love (La La)’ with Meghan Trainor is close behind with ‘Lips Are Movin’, the follow-up single to her worldwide hit, ‘All About That Bass’. Finishing the top five is Kanye West, Rihanna and Paul McCartney with their collaborative track ‘FourFiveSeconds’, which enters the chart in fifth place.

Philip George is at six with ‘Wish You Were Mine’ with Karen Harding close behind with the new entry, ‘Say Something’. Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’ drops two into eighth position, its 32nd week in the chart. Olly Murs and Demi Lovato’s duet, ‘Up’ is at nine with Avicii at ten with ‘The Nights’.

Megan Trainor’s new album, Title, enters the UK chart in first position, defusing the speculations that Trainor’s ‘All About That Bass’ was purely a one-hit wonder. The Charlatans’ Modern Nature enter the chart in seventh position, whilst Rae Morris’ long-awaited debut LP, Unguarded enters at nine. The likes of George Ezra, Sam Smith and Taylor Swift continue holding places in the album chart’s top ten.
