U.K. CHARTS: RECORD FOR "RINGS"
1/25/19

Ariana Grande has set a new U.K. chart record for the most-streamed song in one week with “7 Rings” (Island), driving it straight in at #1 on the Official Singles Chart. Over on albums, The Greatest Showman matches a record set by The Beatles.

 “7 Rings” tallied 16.9m streams and 15k downloads, which is Ariana's biggest opening week for a single in Blighty. With 126k combined sales, the track tops the 113k “Problem” f/Iggy Azalea sold first week in 2014; it's her fourth U.K. #1.

On the Official Albums Chart, The Greatest Showman (Atlantic) continues to sell strong at #1, outperforming George Ezra’s Staying at Tamara’s (Columbia) by 2:1.

The cast recording now matches the chart performance of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, which logged 28 non-consecutive weeks at the summit between 1967 and 1968.
