The power of Comic Relief has helped Sam Smith ft John Legend with ‘Lay Me Down’ to become the 4th different Number 1 single of 2015. This is the 14th chart topper for a Red Nose Day song, dating back to 1986 when the very 1st Comic Relief single from Cliff Richard ft The Young Ones with a version of ‘Living Doll’ hit the top. ‘Lay Me Down’ was the 1st single released from Sam Smiths debut Album (‘In The Lonely Hour’) back in 2013 when it only reached Number 46, after Smith found success the song was re- released as the 5th single release from the Album this time peaking at Number 15. This new version gives John Legend a 1st UK Number 1, ‘All of Me’ peaked at Number 2 last year.

As always enjoy the music.

I can’t remember the last time the top 5 singles all stayed in the same place as they did the previous week but that is what has happened this week.

This of course means Ellie Goulding with, Love Me Like You Do, keeps the top spot for a 4th week. In the whole of 2015 so far there have only been 2 different Number 1’s. Hozier with ‘Take Me to Church’ keeps the Number 2 spot in what is now its 31st week on the chart. Mark Ronson ft Bruno Mars with ‘Uptown Funk’ stays at Number 3, last week it became only the 158th UK single since the charts inception in 1952 to surpass 1000000 sales. No doubt the publicity surrounding the Fifty Shades of Grey film is doing no harm to the sales of ‘Earned It’ from The Weeknd which holds onto the Number 4 spot and completing a static top 5 is Kanye West, Rihanna and Paul McCartney with ‘Four Five Seconds’.

On the UK top 40 singles chart there are a total of 5 new entries and 1 re-entry this week.

Singles wise ‘Heartbeat Song’ is her 15th top 40 hit, ‘Miss Independent’ (Number 6-2003) was the 1st hit and her biggest success came in 2009 when ‘My Life Would Suck Without You’ gave her, her only Number 1 to date.

The new entry at Number 22 this week is from Axwell and Ingrosso with ‘Something New’. They were two thirds of The Swedish House Mafia who split in 2012, the other member who has now gone solo was Steve Angello. This is the 1st single release from the now new duo.

Dance music makes an appearance at Number 24 with this week’s 3rd new entry from The Disciples with ‘They Don’t Know’. They are 3 musicians from London and this song has gained in popularity since it was premiered as the essential tune of the week last August on the Pete Tong Radio 1 show.

Madonna returns to the UK top 40 at Number 26 this week with ‘Living For Love’, this is the 1st single release from her forthcoming 13th studio Album to be called ‘Rebel Heart’.

In total she has now had 68 UK top 40 singles of which 13 have gone to Number 1. Since the turn of this decade her singles haven’t been so successful with only 2 of them charting, this current one and ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’ ft Nicki Minaj (Number 37-2012).
