U.K. CHARTS: BALL & BOE TOGETHER AT #1

Decca’s Ball & Boe have pipped Stereophonics to the post by just 35 sales on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart with Together Again scoring a second #1 for the duo. Over on the Official Singles Chart, Camila Cabello has her first #1 with “Havana” (Syco) f/Young Thug.

Together Again sold 43.8k this week. It's the second album from Ball & Boe, who debuted at #2 with Together last November on 45k sales, before becoming one of 2016's biggest sellers on 512k by year’s end. 

Stereophonics end at #2 with their 10th studio album and debut for ParlophoneScream Above the Sounds, selling 43.76k—just short of the 45k its self-released predecessor, Keep The Village Alive, did first week in 2015. UMG label Decca has another high entry at #3 with Gregory Porter’s Nat King Cole & Me.

Chris Brown and Kelly Clarkson are among other high new entrants, with Heartbreak on a Full Moon (RCA) at #10 and Meaning of Life (Atlantic) at #11. 

At singles, Cabello finished 4k sales ahead of long-running #1, Post Malone’s “Rockstar” (Island), after sitting at #2 for three weeks. 

“Silence” (Ministry of Sound) by Marshmello f/Khalid stays at #3, followed by Avicii f/Rita Ora’s “Lonely Together” (Atlantic/Positiva) and “Dusk Till Dawn” (RCA) by Zayn f/Sia. “Wolves” (Interscope) from Selena Gomez & Marshmello is this week’s highest new entry at #16.
