Little Mix and Clean Bandit are leading the post-Christmas charts as Glory Days (Syco) logs a fourth week at #1 and “Rockabye” (Atlantic) helms the Official Singles Chart for a ninth consecutive week. Will Ed Sheeran shake things up next week?
Glory Days joins Destiny Child’s Survivor as the longest-running #1 album from a girl group on U.K. charts this millennium; the latter also tallied four weeks in 2001.
Following a performance on Graham Norton’s primetime TV show on New Year’s Eve, Pete Tong’s dance collection Classic House (Polydor/UMC/UMOD) vaults 22 places to #2 on the Official Albums Chart.
The remaining Top 5 is staid with Michael Ball & Alfie Boe’s Together (Decca) at #3, The Wonder of You (Sony Music CG) by Elvis Presley at #4 and The Rolling Stones’ Blue & Lonesome (Polydor) at #5.
In the absence of any new blockbuster releases last week, Rag’N’Bone Man’s “Human” (Columbia) is at #2 on the Official Singles Chart, “I Would Like” (Black Butter) by Zara Larsson is #3, “Touch” (Syco) by Little Mix is #4 and The Weeknd f/Daft Punk’s “Starboy” (Island) rises three places to #5. Neiked’s “Sexual” (Polydor) is back in the Top 10, up five places to #6.
