The King and the undisputed queen, Adele, are still on top of the UK album and singles chart.
There’s no change at the top of the UK album and singles chart this week, as Elvis Presley and Adele continue to hold on to the number one spots respectively. Adele is celebrating her third week on top of the singles chart with ‘Hello’, which has now been certified Platinum by the BPI.
Adele is on top of the UK singles chart for a third week.
Despite being in it’s third week of release, ‘Hello’ managed to outsell its nearest competitor by over 34,000 combined chart sales this week. It is also this week’s most streamed track, racking up 4.7 million listens. ‘Hello’ is the first single from Adele’s upcoming third album, 25, which is due out on November 20th.
At number two, also for a third week, is Justin Bieber with ‘Sorry’ which wasn’t too far behind Adele with its number of streams, notching up 4.51 million plays. A new entry at number three came from 'X-Factor' runner-up Fleur East with her debut single ‘Sax’.
London trio WSTRN scored this week’s highest climber with ‘IN2’, which jumped a massive 56 places to take the number four spot. Rounding off the top five was MNEK & Zara Larsson with ‘Never Forget You’, which claimed two places in its fifth week on the chart.
Over in the albums chart, Elvis Presley proves he really still is the king by holding on to the top spot for a second week. If I Can Dream, which includes re-workings of his classic hits by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, racked up over 88,600 combined chart sales this week, beating its first-week tally.
A new entry at number two came from Little Mix with their third album Get Weird, giving the girl group their highest charting record. Another new entry at number three was from Ellie Goulding with Delirium, also her third album.
The top five was rounded off by last week’s number two, Rod Stewart’s Another Country and the deluxe reissue of the Beatles’ hits album 1. In the Official Classical Albums Chart ‘Pointless’ star Alexander Armstrong is at number one with A Year Of Songs, making him the first ever comedian to top that chart.
