NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS—IT’S THE U.K. CHARTS: Sony Music scores another #1 and retains three albums in the Top 10, keeping the reawakened company’s hot streak alive. Ella Henderson’s first album is one of six bows on the leaderboard, including releases from not one but two Jessies, a pair of formerly contemporary bands and an incognito Pink (so we’ve replaced her exclamation point with a less obtrusive “i”).  

Ella Henderson, Chapter One (SYCO)*
Ed Sheeran

Sam Smith, In the Lonely Hour (Capitol)

*Debut
 
Meghan Trainor refuses to relinquish the top rung on the singles chart, but Taylor Swift inches closer, moving #4-2, the exact opposite of Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. The lead track from 1D’s upcoming blockbuster is the lone debut in the Top 5, whose other occupant is the relentless Ed Sheeran. (10/20a)
