U.K. CHARTS: CALVIN ENTERS AT #2

Ed Sheeran has emerged the victor in the battle with Calvin Harris for the Official Albums #1 in Blighty as Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 (Columbia) settles for second place. Over at singles, the highest new entry is Rudimental f/James Arthur with “Sun Comes Up” (Atlantic) at #24.

Harris this week earns his second #2 in a row with his fifth album. Further down, Rag’n’Bone Man spends his 21st week in the Top 5 with Human (Columbia) rising two spots to #3 while Royal Blood rise one place to #4 with How Did We Get So Dark? (Warner Bros.). The second highest new entry is Stone Soar with Hydrograd (Roadrunner) at #5—their highest U.K. chart placing yet.

On the Official Singles Chart, “Despacito” (Polydor) by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber is #1 for an eighth consecutive week with 30k downloads and 7.2m streams. Can the track match Drake’s 15-week run at the top with “One Dance” (Island) last summer?

DJ Khaled, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller's "Wild Thoughts" (Black Butter/We The Best) is #2 followed by “Unforgettable” (Black Butter) by French Montana f/Swae Lee at #3. The tracks are two of nine entries from Jason Iley’s Sony U.K. in the Top 20 singles chart this week, alongside Calvin Harris f/Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry and Big Sean’s “Feels” at #6, Little Mix’s “Power” (Syco) at #8, DJ Khaled f/ Bieber, Quavo and Chance the Rapper’s “I’m the One” at #11, Sigala and Ella Eyre's “Came Here For Love” (Ministry of Sound) at #12, “Crying in the Club” (Syco) by Camila Cabello at #16, Artists for Grenfell “Bridge Over Troubled Water” (Syco) at #18 and “Malibu” (RCA) by Miley Cyrus at #19.

Elsewhere, “Mama” (Virgin EMI) by Jonas Blue is at #4 and “Strip That Down” (Capitol) by Liam Payne f/Quavo is #5.
