Clean Bandit In Hot Pursuit

14/Feb/2014

Pharrell Williams holds at No1 on the Singles Chart for a seventh week with 'Happy', but his lead over the No2 single, Clean Bandit's 'Rather Be', has narrowed from 900 to 140 sales.


With little significant movement throughout this week's Top 30 the only brand new entry is David Guetta's 'Shot Me Down' (with Skylar Grey) who is this week's highest new entry at No18. London Grammar's 'Strong' re-enters the chart at No23 having previously been in this chart last October, while U2's 'Invisible' climbs from No31 to No24. This is a charity release with all proceeds going to (RED), and it's the band's second hit of the year after 'Ordinary Love' which reached No13. Finally, there's a fourth appearance in the Top 30 for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis with 'White Walls' up from No34 to No30, following their three Top 10 hits in 2013 - 'Can't Hold Us' (No3), 'Thrift Shop' (No1) and 'Same Love' (No6).

The Album Chart is static again this week, with the Top 5 unchanged since last week. Ellie Goulding holds at No1 for a fifth week with 'Halcyon Days', ahead of Kodaline, Bruce Springsteen, Beyoncé and One Direction. Nottingham trio London Grammar reap the benefits of a Graham Norton Show performance, with their debut album 'If You Wait' re-entering the chart at No9 - an improvement on their previous peak at No13 last year while the week's highest new entry goes to Katy B with her second album 'Little Red' landing at No35. Two compilations move up into the Top 20 for Valentine's Day - Tina Turner's 'Love Songs' at No11 and André Rieu's 'Love Letters' at No16.
