One direction for One Direction: Straight to the Top!


This week sees the Top Ten albums shaken up as One Direction carry on their trend of storming to the No1 spot in their first week.

This week they release their fifth studio album 'Made in the A.M.' which heads straight to No1. Entering this week's album chart at No2 is Justin Bieber's fourth studio album 'Purpose' while Ed Sheeran's 'X' still stands strong in the top of these charts at No3. Little Mix's first No1 album to date 'Get Weird' drops three places to No4 from its peak position last week. Dropping two places to No5 is Elvis and The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra's re-imagining of hits 'If I Can Dream'. Also entering this week's charts are Jeff Lynne's ELO at No6 with a brand new album 'Alone in the Universe'. This week's Top20 include Kylie Minogue's seasonally suitable 'Kylie Christmas' entering at No14, Classical King Andre Rieu's latest release 'Roman Holiday' - entering at No15 and X Factor runner-up Ben Haenow's eponymous album debuting at No16. Other notable new releases into this week's charts include Neil Young's 'Bluenote Cafe' at No39 and Kurt Cobain's posthumous release of home recordings 'Montage of Heck' entering at No46.

Still holding on to the top spot in this week's Singles Charts, is Adele at No1 with her comeback single 'Hello'. Unable to disrupt her success at the top is Justin Bieber with not one, not two tracks but three tracks from his latest album 'Purpose': 'Sorry', 'What Do You Mean' and 'Love Yourself' holding onto Nos 2, 3 and 4 respectively - 'Love yourself' being the only new entry into this week's Top 40. With Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' 'Downtown' claiming the No5 spot, every new entry into this week's Singles Chart belongs to One Direction or Justin Bieber - with One Direction failing to make this week's Top 5.
