Pharrell's Still Happy

31/Jan/2014

Pharrell Williams holds at No1 on the Singles Chart for a fifth week with 'Happy' - one of four Pharrell tracks on the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, and by far the most popular.


Pitbull & Ke$ha take a fourth consecutive week at No2 with 'Timber', outsold each week by 'Happy'. However, their positions are reversed in term of streams, with 'Timber' topping the Streaming Chart for the past five weeks. The highest new entry of the week is at No3 for will.i.am with 'Feelin' Myself', his third collaboration with Miley Cyrus following 'Fall Down' and 'Do My Thang'. Just behind at No4 is Clean Bandit's 'Rather Be', up eleven places from No15 and already No1 in their native UK.  Beyoncé & Jay-Z leap twenty-one places from No41 to No20 with 'Drunk In Love' after their controversial performance at this week's Grammy awards. The next new entry in this week's Top 30 is at No21 for BRIT school graduate Kathleen Anne Brien, Katy B, with 'Crying For No Reason', her first appearance in the Irish Chart.

Ellie Goulding returns to No1 with 'Halcyon Days', her third week at the top, ahead of Bruce Springsteen who dips to No2 after two weeks at the summit with 'High Hopes'. Once again, Tesco's clearance sale has a major impact on the Album Chart, with price promotions boosting Michael Jackson's 'Number Ones' (No19 to No8) and Marti Pellow's 'Love To Love' (No26 to No15). This week's highest new entry is at No27 for You Me At Six with their fourth studio release 'Cavalier Youth'. Of the previous three, their second album 'Hold Me Down' was the most successful, reaching No24 in 2010.
