U.K. CHARTS: TAKE THAT SCORE 9TH #1
12/1/23

Take That have the biggest opening week for a British act in 2023 with This Life (EMI), their ninth #1. Over on singles, Jack Harlow has a third week at #1.

This Life shifted 116k chart sales to top the U.K.’s Official Albums chart; 97% of which are on physical formats. The set surpassed 2023’s previous fastest-selling record by a British act, Lewis Capaldi’s Broken by Desire to be Heavenly Sent (EMI), by 21k sales.

Elsewhere, Michael Bublé’s festive staple, Christmas (Reprise), jumps 12 places to #4. A posthumous greatest-hits collection from Tina Turner, Queen of Rock ’n’ Roll (Parlophone), lands at #16.

A 35th anniversary edition of Kylie Minogue’s debut, Kylie (BMG), returns to the Top 40 for the first time in 34 years at #30.

On the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart, Harlow’s “Lovin on Me” (Atlantic) is still #1. The track has outperformed itself week-on-week, securing its biggest seven-day numbers yet with 55k U.K. chart units.

Noah Kahan’s “Stick Season” (Republic) is up one to #2.

As the festive season gets underway, nearly half the chart is Christmas songs with 16 tracks in the Top 40.

“Last Christmas” (Epic) by Wham! leads the way at #5 while “All I Want for Christmas Is You” (Columbia) by Mariah Carey is #6.

Outside the Top 10, Olivia Rodrigo’s “Can’t Catch Me Now” (Geffen), taken from the latest Hunger Games soundtrack, is up one to #12.

Following the news of death of Shane MacGowan, The Pogues' holiday song “Fairytale of New York” (Warner Music U.K.) rises to #18 from #53.
