All About Meghan

03/Oct/2014

Meghan Trainor completes her eight week climb up the Singles Chart this week to finally reach the summit with her world-wide hit 'All About That Bass' - No1 in Ireland at her first attempt.


Lilly Wood & Robin Schulz's 'Prayer In C' drops a place to No2 while G.R.L. turn around after last week's drop, moving back up to No3 with 'Ugly Heart'. George Ezra benefits from his appearance on The Graham Norton Show as 'Budapest' climbs back up the Chart from No20 to No11 and 'Blame It On Me' reaches a new peak, climbing from No63 to No17. There is only one new entry in this week's Top 50 - 'Let It Be' by Labrinth at No44.

Hozier holds on at the top of this week's Album Chart for a second week with his self-titled debut, heading a Top 3 unchanged from last week - Leonard Cohen's 'Popular Problems' is unmoved at No2 and The Script hold firm at No3 with 'No Sound Without Silence'. In contrast to the lack of new singles this week there are seven new entries into the Top 50 of the Album Chart. In an unusual move Prince releases two albums this week - his 33rd and 34th studio albums - nearly one album for each year of his 36 year recording career. The first, 'Art Offical Age', enters at No8 while 'Plectrumelectrum' (with 3rdeyegirl) enters at No14. Gerard Way takes the third new entry with 'Hesitant Alien' at No17 - his first debut solo release since the split of My Chemical Romance last year. Jamie T takes his third album 'Carry On The Grudge' into the chart at No29, while Lucinda Williams achieves her highest position on this chart as 'Down Where The Spirit Meets The Bone' enters at No31. Richie Kavanagh's 'Greatest Hits' is a new entry at No39 while SBTRKT takes the seventh new entry at No46 for his second studio release 'Wonder Where We Land' - his first Top 50 showing.
