Nathan's Living The High Life

15/May/2015

Nathan Carter heads straight to the top of this week's Album Chart with his eighth album 'Beautiful Life' to land his second No1 - 2013's 'Where I Wanna Be' climbed to the top in its third week of release.


Mumford & Sons drop to No2 with 'Wilder Mind' while Hozier holds steady at No3. There are four more new entries in this week's Top 30 with Leonard Cohen leading the rest of the pack at No5. 'Can't Forget - A Souvenir Of The Grand Tour' is his eighth live album and the fourth to come out of his World Tour of 2008-2013. Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell score a new entry at No12 with 'The Traveling Kind', faring better than their last collaboration 'Old Yellow Moon' which peaked at No32 in 2013. Roisin Murphy's 'Hairless Toys' is the fourth of this week's new entries at No16. This is her third solo studio album and her best showing on this chart - 2007's 'Overpowered' peaked at No51 while 2005's 'Ruby Blue' failed to chart. Eric Clapton provides the final new entry at No23 with his latest compilation album 'Forever Man' - a collection of tracks from the last 30 years recorded on the Reprise label. After last week's performance on The Late Late Show, Don McLean returns to the chart with 'American Pie - The Greatest Hits' a re-entry at No20.

For a second week it's very tight at the top of the Singles Chart as Omi and Wiz Khalifa again battle it out for the top spot. This week it's Omi who comes out on top giving him a second stint at No1 with 'Cheerleader'. Wiz Khalifa & Charlie Puth's 'See You Again' drops to No2 while Major Lazer holds steady at No3 with 'Lean On'. With no brand new entries in the Top 50 this week there are a couple of tracks making good strides and entering the Top 50 from outside - David Guetta takes 'Hey Mama' up 32 places from No51 to No19 while Robin Schulz (feat. Ilsey) climbs 15 places from No54 to No39 with 'Headlights'.
