NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS—IT'S THE U.K. TOP 10

Sheeran Remains at #1, While Smith Climbs to #3

It's another week atop the British album chart for Asylum's Ed Sheeran, while Capitol's Sam Smith moves up to #3 in his 11th week.

RCA's Paloma Faith and Polydor's Ellie Goulding jump five and six spots, respectively, to enter the Top 10.

Music Sounds' pop/rock troubadour Charlie Simpson debuts at #10, while Dirty Hit/Polydor's The 1975, whose new single, "Heart Out," was recently added at BBC Radio 1, threatens the leaderboard at #11.

RCA's Magic! bows at #19, while their single is knocked out of the #1 spot by Warner Bros.' Nico & Vinz with "Am I Wrong" (apparently the first U.K. #1 for a Norwegian act since A-ha in 1986). "Wrong" had hitherto been available as a stream only and bubbling under at #52; upon its retail debut it flew to #1.


OneRepublic bowed at #3 this week with “Love Runs Out,” while Sheeran’s “Don’t,” which entered A List rotation at Radio 1 last week, climbed #35-23.
