U.K. CHARTS: A JINGLE BALL & HOLIDAY BOE

Michael Ball and Alfie Boe have landed at #1 on the U.K.’s Official Albums chart with Together at Christmas (Decca), on 33,000 in sales. On singles, Ariana Grande holds onto the top spot for a fifth consecutive week. 

Together at Christmas is Ball & Boe’s third joint album to reach #1. Of those 33,000 units sold, 96% were physical. 

BTS’ BE (Big Hit) settles for second place, at #2, followed by Taylor Swift’s Folklore (EMI), which rebounds to #4, from #36, following its release on vinyl.  

Two more releases debut in this week’s Top 10: Neil Diamond and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s Classic Diamonds (UMG), at #5, and the Iron Maiden live album Nights of the Dead—Legacy of the Beast (Parlophone), at #7. 

On the U.K.’s Official Singles chart, Grande’s “positions” (Island) notches up 5.4m streams this week to stay on top, while Billie Eilish sits 7,000 in sales behind with “Therefore I Am” (Polydor), at #2. 

Dua Lipa lands her seventh Top 5 single with “Levitating” (Warner Records), which jumps five to #5, while also scoring this week’s highest new entry, with “Prisoner” (RCA), by Miley Cyrus; it enters at #8. 

Close behind are two other brand-new entries: “Monster,” by Shawn Mendes & Justin Bieber (EMI), at #9, and the opening track from BTS’ new album, BE, “Life Goes On,” at #10. 

Further down, “Whoopty” (CJ Music Group), by rapper CJ, flies up 12 places to #12 and Grande’s “34+35” rises four, to #13.
