It is the 4th week of the New Year and we remain starved of new music on the UK top 40 singles chart. This week there is only 1 new entry and in fact in the whole month of January there have been only 7 new entries.
Mark Ronson ft Bruno Mars with ‘Uptown Funk’ holds on to the Number 1 spot and now has achieved a 6th unconsequitive week at the top. Ronsons LP ‘Uptown Special’ also holds the top spot on the Album chart. The last song to spend 6 weeks at Number 1 was ‘We Found Love’ from Rihanna ft Calvin Harris back in November 2011.The last song to spend 7 weeks at the top was ‘Bleeding Love’ from Leona Lewis during November and December 2007.
The only new entry this week is at Number 2 for Meghan Trainor who is no longer a one hit wonder. The follow up to ‘All About That Bass’ (4 weeks at Number 1 last year) is ‘Lips Are Movin’, as with ‘All About That Bass’ the song is co- written by Trainor and Kevin Kadish, Kadish also produced the track. The song has already peaked at Number 3 in Australia and Number 4 in America where it has sold over 1 million copies to date. Both songs feature on Trainors debut Album which is called ‘Title’.
Hozier holds on to the Number 3 spot with ‘Take Me to Church’ and Philip George drops 2 to Number 4 with ‘Wish You Were Mine’. Olly Murs ft Demi Lovato with ‘Up’ drops down 1 place to Number 5. Avicci whose song ‘The Nights’ was a new entry at Number 16 last week climbs 8 places, while last week’s other new entry from Sia with ‘Elastic Heart’ climbs 2 to 11. Echosmith with ‘Cool Kids’ continues to climb, it’s up another 11 places to Number 17 this week.
As always enjoy the music.
