X Marks The Spot

08/Aug/2014

Six weeks ago Ed Sheeran debuted at No1 on the Album Chart with his second album 'X', followed by five consecutive weeks at No2, but this week he's back to notch up a second week at the top.


Garth Brooks 'The Ultimate Hits' dips to No2 after four weeks on top, ahead of Kodaline at No3 and 5 Seconds Of Summer at No4. Price-cutting on digital formats gives a new lease of life to several old favourites, with Calvin Harris '18 Months' and David Guetta 'Nothing But The Beat' returning to the chart at No8 and No13 respectively. Unusually, even for this quiet time of year, there are no new entries in this week's Top 30.

It's the same story on the Singles Chart - not a single new entry in the Top 30. Ella Henderson's 'Ghost' remains at No1, although German duo Milky Chance come a close second climbing three places from No5 to No2 with 'Stolen Dance'. Although not quite able to take the top spot on this chart, Milky Chance do take the top prize on this week's Streaming Chart ending John Legend's fifteen week domination with 'All Of Me'. Also moving in the right direction are Magic!, who leap eleven places from No15 to No4 with 'Rude', and George Ezra, up eight places from No14 to No6 with 'Budapest'.
