Three Cheers For Omi

10/Apr/2015

After a seventeen week climb up the Singles Chart Omi's 'Cheerleader' finally makes it to No1 - and again is the most streamed track this week.


Last week's No1 Hometown slip back to No28 with 'Cry For Help' after their week of store appearances comes to an end. James Bay holds steady at No2 with 'Hold Back The River' while Years & Years continue their climb up the Chart - from No4 to this week's No3. Wiz Khalifa is this week's highest new entry as he achieves his best position to date on this chart as a lead artist. His latest track - 'See You Again' (featuring Charlie Puth) enters at No9. It is the best performing track so far taken from the soundtrack for the film 'Fast & Furious 7' - a record previously held by Flo Rida who took 'G.D.F.R. to No15 and currently sits just one place lower at No16. The only other new entry in this week's Top 50 is for Nick Jonas as he makes his first appearance in this Chart as a solo artist and lands at No47 with 'Jealous'. As part of the now defunct band with his brothers, Joe & Kevin, he had three Top 30 hits in 2008 and 2009 the most sucessful being 'S.O.S.' which reached No14.


With less than 40 sales separating the top three albums there is a re-shuffling at the top of this week's Album Chart as Hozier returns to No1 to take a eighth week at the summit. Ed Sheeran's 'X' moves up to No2 from last week's No3 while James Bay drops two places to No3 with 'Chaos And The Calm'. All Time Low take their sixth studio release 'Future Hearts' into the Top Ten at No7 as this week's only new entry in the Top 50. This is by far their best chart showing as their only other albums to chart - 2011's 'Dirty Work' and 2012's 'Don't Panic' - made it to No's 34 & 25 respectively. Paul Brady gets a Top 40 re-entry after his live appearance on The Late Late Show last Friday as 'Nobody Knows - The Best Of' enters at No36.
