New Husband, New Name and New No1

25/Jul/2014

Newly-wed Cheryl Cole arrives at No1 on this week's Singles Chart with her eighth release as lead artist 'Crazy Stupid Love' (feat. Tinie Tempah). This brings her tally of Irish No1's to six - four solo, one with Girls Aloud and one with the charity group Helping Haiti.


Ella Henderson's 'Ghost' drops to No2 after a broken run of four weeks at the top, ahead of Hozier who claims the next new entry at No3 with 'Sedated'. Both his previous singles stalled at No2 but showed great longevity - 'Take Me To Church' is at No21 this week 10 months since release while 'From Eden' is at No26, four months since release. The third and final new entry in this week's Top 10 is at No8 for Charli XCX with 'Boom Clap', her first solo hit following two as featured artist (with Iggy Azalea and Icona Pop).

Garth Brooks 'The Ultimate Hits' takes a fourth week at No1 on the Album Chart, one place ahead of Ed Sheeran who takes a fourth week at No2 after debuting at No1 with 'X' four weeks ago. This week's highest new entry is at No15 for La Roux with 'Trouble In Paradise' - the follow-up to her self-titled debut album which reached No7 four years ago.
