Carter The Unstoppable


Nathan Carter takes a third week at No1 on the Album Chart with 'Beautiful Life' - only the second artist this year (after Ed Sheeran) to hold on at the top for more than two weeks.

Taylor Swift and Hozier take advantage of a quiet week for new entries, climbing back up to No2 and No3 respectively after more than six months in the chart. A swathe of price-promoted compilations make an impact this week, the highest of which are Foo Fighters 'Greatest Hits' (No7), Lionel Richie 'Back To Front' (No8) and Ennio Morricone 'The Very Best Of' (No10). This week's highest new entry is at No27 for Ash with 'Kablammo!', their seventh studio album over a period of twenty-one years and their first since 2007 when 'Twilight Of The Innocents' debuted and peaked at No26. The only other newcomers in this week's Top 40 are The Vaccines at No35 with 'English Graffiti' and Will Young at No38 with '85% Proof', a dip in chart form for both artists who debuted inside the Top 20 with their previous releases.

With Omi heading a Top 5 unchanged since last week, Taylor Swift mounts a challenge on the leaders as she soars from No21 to No8 with 'Bad Blood'. Sweden's Eurovision winner Mans Zelmerlow claims the only new entry in this week's Top 50 with 'Heroes' at No10, while Ireland's Molly Sterling debuts at No77 with 'Playing With Numbers' despite missing out on a place in the Final.
