Singles:



Extending to eight the sequence of consecutive No.1s to spend more than a week at the singles chart summit, Clean Bandit's Rockabye was untroubled by the chasing pack, with its existing grip on paid-for sales and the overall chart tightening, as it moved to the top of the streaming chart for the first time.

It racked up 76,189 sales (including 41,786 from streams), an increase of 5.70% week-on-week and 39.37% more than the 54,665 sales achieved by James Arthur's former No.1, Say You Won't Let Go, which bounces 3-2 by dint of the fact it is fading more slowly than Little Mix's Shout Out To My Ex, which falls 2-3 (53,774 sales).

After debuting at No.36 last week, Black Beatles - the introductory hit for fraternal duo Rae Sremmurd - more than trebles sales and soars to No.4 (48,273 sales) thanks largely to its popularity on social media as the soundtrack to many and various Mannequin Challenges. The track soars 9-1 in the pair's native USA, ending a 12 week run at the Hot 100 summit for The Chainsmokers' Closer.

The only other track in the Top 10 to register sales growth is Neiked's debut hit Sexual, which holds at No.6, with a 2.70% increase in consumption at 43,733 sales.

The rest of the Top 10, all in slow decline, are: Starboy (4-5, 44,211 sales) by The Weeknd feat. Daft Punk, 24K Magic (5-7, 41,524 sales) by Bruno Mars, Don't Wanna Know (7-8, 39,909 sales) by Maroon 5 feat. Kendrick Lamar, Closer (8-9, 39,270 sales) by Chainsmokers feat. Halsey and Starving (9-10, 37,212 sales) by Hailee Steinfeld & Grey feat. Zedd. Sia's The Greatest (feat. Kendrick Lamar) ends a nine week run in the Top 10, dipping 10-11 (29,827 sales).

The xx's first album in more than four years, I See You is released in January. The first single, On Hold, becomes only their second Top 40 entry, debuting at No.38 (14,475 sales).

Swedish singer/songwriter Zara Larsson scores her sixth hit in less than 14 months with I Would Like (No.42, 13,586 sales).

London trio The Vaults register their first hit but might have expected something better than a No.53 debut (11,408 sales) for their cover of Randy Crawford's 1980 No.2 hit One Day I'll Fly Away. The track received saturation coverage on TV last week, primarily as the soundbed to John Lewis' new Christmas commercial but also on programmes like Have I Got News For You and 8 Out Of 10 Cats, on which the advertisement got free airings thanks to its trampolining dog et al. It brings to 10 the number of hits from John Lewis TV commercials. Last year, 19-year-old Norwegian singer Aurora's cover of Half The World Away, an Oasis b-side from 1994, reached No.11. In 2014, Tom Odell's cover of The Beatles' Real Love reached number seven. The two John Lewis Christmas campaign songs immediately prior to that both reached number one - Lily Allen in 2013 with her cover of Keane's Somewhere Only We Know, and Gabrielle Aplin in 2012 with Frankie Goes To Hollywood cover The Power Of Love. Before that, Paloma Faith reached number 16 in 2012 with her cover of INXS' 1988 number 24 hit Never Year Us Apart; under the guise of Slow Moving Millie, singer/actress Amelia Warner's cover of The Smiths' Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want reached number 31 in 2011; Ellie Goulding reached number two in November 2010 with her cover of Elton John’s Your Song; Taken By Trees’ cover version of Guns N’ Roses’ Sweet Child O’ Mine - used for the Christmas 2009 campaign - reached number 23; and Guillemots singer Fyfe Dangerfield’s rendition of Billy Joel’s She’s Always A Woman To Me reached number seven in May 2010. All are covers. With 48,189 sales since being made available digitally in 2008, Randy Crawford's original One Day I'll Fly Away normally sells about 160 copies a week but sold 2,727 copies last week, although it fails to re-enter the Top 200.

Also new to the Top 75 are: Oh Lord (94-60, 9,253 sales) the first hit by by Liverpudlian R&B quintet Mic Lowry, Scars To Your Beautiful (78-66, 8,438 sales) by Alessia Cara, Lovesick (87-67, 8,195 sales) by Mura Masa feat. A$AP Rocky and After The Afterparty (126-73, 8,009 sales) by Charli XCX feat. Lil Yachty.

The Mack springs 44-23 (19,095 sales) to reach a new peak for Nevada feat. Mark Morrison & Fetty Wap, and there are also fresh highs for Love My Life (57-33) by Robbie Williams, Juju On That Beat (TZ Anthem) (40-37, 14,634 sales) by Zay Hilfigerrr and Zayion McCall, Find Me (46-39, 14,254 sales) by Sigma feat. Birdy, Love Me Now (64-45, 12,995 sales) by John Legend and Lock Doh (56-52, 11,802 sales) by Giggs feat. Donae'o,

Overall singles sales are up 7.93% week-on-week at 10,523,105 - 37.21% above same week 2015 sales of 7,669,567. Streams accounted for 9,031,343 sales, 85.82% of the total. Paid-for sales are up 1.01% week-on-week at 1,491,762 – 28.67% below same week 2015 sales of 2,091,303 and below same-week, previous-year sales for the 171st week in a row. Overall singles sales, streaming sales, and streaming's share of total sales all reached all-time highs.

Albums:



Olly Murs is the second X Factor act to score four number ones and also the second act to score four number ones in the 2010s, as his fifth studio album, 24 Hrs, debuts atop the chart on sales of 57,981 copies, including 1,320 from streams.

The 2009 X Factor runner-up thus matches the success of One Direction, although with the album still to generate a Top 10 single, sales of 24 Hrs are only the eighth highest for a No.1 in 2016, and are substantially below the first week tally of all previous Murs albums. You Don't Know Love - the first single from 24 Hrs - peaked at No.15, while second single Grow Up, which previously peaked on debut five weeks ago at No.52, jumps 61-25 (17,858 sales) after Murs performed it on the X Factor results show.

Murs' fourth album, Never Been Better sold 92,597 copies on debut at No.1 a shade under two years ago. His third album Right Place, Right Time debuted at number one on sales of 126,949 copies nearly four years ago, and second album In Case You Didn't Know opened at number one on sales of 148,532 copies nearly five years ago. Murs' self-titled debut album opened and peaked at number two nearly six years ago, on sales of 108,212 copies. Right Place, Right Time is Murs' biggest-selling album with a to-date tally of 1,346,573, with In Case You Didn't Know selling 1,105,014 copies, Olly Murs selling 827,376 copies and Never Been Better selling 811,226 copies.

24 Hrs is the 23rd album by an X Factor graduate to reach number one, a sequence that spans more than 11 years, and although Murs helped to compose all but two of its songs, it includes songs co-written by both Steve Robson and former American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi, as does the album it replaces at No.1, The Heavy Entertainment Show, which is by Murs' great pal Robbie Williams, and tumbles to No.6 (26,243 sales).

In a top three which all cleared the 30,000 sales mark for the first time this year, Murs' runner-up is Emeli Sandé, whose second album, Long Live The Angels, sold 47,512 copies on debut, nearly five years after her blockbusting first album, Our Version Of Events stormed to an instant No.1 on sales of 113,319, eventually spending 10 weeks at the summit and 67 weeks in the Top 10, selling 2,305,340 copies to date. Our Version Of Events' initial sales were heightened by Valentine's Day gift buying, and achieved in the wake of one No.2 single (Heaven) and simultaneous with the chart debut of a second (Next To Me). Long Live The Angels' only hit to date, Hurts, peaked at No.22 but rallies 43-36 (14,729 sales) this week. Sandé co-wrote every track on Long Live The Angels but her co-writers include Peter Kelleher, Ben Kohn and Wayne Hector, and a track produced by TMS - traits it shares with Murs' album.

Cliff Richard's first Sony album but his 48th studio album in all, Just...Fabulous Rock 'n' Roll debuts at No.4 (37,122 sales). It thus surpasses the No.7 debut on sales of 24,617 copies of Richard's last studio album, the similarly-themed Rhino release, The Fabulous Rock 'n Roll Songbook exactly three years ago. The 76-year old's last chart entry was the compilation 75 At 75, which debuted and peaked at number four on sales of 16,131 copies in September 2015. Just...Fabulous Rock 'n' Roll is Richard's 67th Top 75 entry, his 44th Top 10 album and provides his highest weekly sale since 2006, when his duets album Two's Company sold 47,776 copies in the week immediately prior to Christmas.

His death last week at the age of 82 has resulted in a resurgence of interest in the output of folk singer and poet Leonard Cohen, whose latest album, You Want It Darker, bounces 29-7 (21,633 sales) three weeks after it debuted and peaked at No.4. A further seven albums by Cohen return to the Top 200 but the only other one to breach the Top 75 is his 2002 compilation The Essential, which re-enters at No.26 (6,153 sales), surpassing the previous peak of No.57 it scaled in 2008, and delivering his 16th Top 40 album, while increasing its cumulative sales to 235,749.

The rest of this week's Top 10: Together (2-3, 42,863 sales) by Michael Ball & Alfie Boe, The Wonder Of You (3-5, 29,647 sales) by Elvis Presley, Nobody But Me (4-8, 17,769 sales) by Michael Buble, Back From The Edge by James Arthur (6-9, 15,458 sales) and Christmas (7-10, 15,076 sales) also by Michael Buble. It is only the second time the entire Top 10 has sold more than 10,000 copies this year, and the first time they have cleared the 15,000 mark.

The following titles absent themselves from the top tier: Upon A Different Shore (8-12, 11,738 sales) by Alexander Armstrong, The Singles (9-14, 11,020 sales) by Phil Collins, The Ultimate Collection (10-20, 9,037 sales) by Roy Orbison and This House Is Not For Sale (5-25, 6,232 sales) by Bon Jovi. The Orbison album, incidentally, actually increased sales by 2.10% despite its fall.

All three albums by The Wanted made the Top 10 and amassed combined sales of nearly 840,000 copies - but band member Nathan Sykes' first solo album, Unfinished Business, falls short of the mark, debuting at No.11 (12,067 sales) even though it is home to his 2015 Top 20 hits Kiss Me Quick and Over And Over Again, as well as latest single Famous, which sprints 62-28 (17,551 sales) after he performed it on the X Factor results show.

The latest David Bowie compilation Legacy debuts at No.13 (11,533 sales). Its only unique track is a 2016 remix of Life On Mars, which completely strips out Mick Ronson's guitarwork.

Eschewing rock for medieval music (Songs Form The Labyrinth), winter songs (If On A Winter's Night...), classically-charged interpretations of his old material (Symphonicities), and songs from his Geordie shipyard stage musical (The Last Ship), Sting reverts to type for the first time in 13 years with 57th & 9th...but it fails to break his streak of albums peaking outside the Top 10, debuting at No.15 (10,645 sales). The 65-year old former Police man's first seven solo studio albums - issued between 1985 and 2003 - all made the Top 5 but none of those mentioned above made it into the Top 10.

Status Quo have had back-to-back Top 10 albums with stripped down acoustic albums featuring new interpretations of their old hits, most recently just three weeks ago - and Simple Minds do likewise for the first time with Acoustic, and are rewarded with a No.16 debut (10,427 sales) for the album, which brings their 21st Top 75 entry, and their 14th Top 20 entry.

Pink Floyd register their 21st Top 20 album with The Early Years 1965-1972 (9,790 sales). A 2 CD distillation of the release accounts for 8,274 of those sales, while the full 27 CD edition accounts for a further 1,162 sales, leaving digital sales and streaming of both with a contribution of just 354.

Bolstered by guest appearances from Kanye West, Jack White and Elton John, We Got It From Here...Thank You 4 Your Service is the sixth and final album from legendary hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest. Their first five, released between 1990 and 1998, peaked between a high of No.28 and a low of No.70. We Got It From Here... beats them all, opening at No.24 (6,340 sales).

Eight years since their last album and more than 13 years since their last Top 75 album, new age legends Enigma's eighth studio album, The Fall Of A Rebel Angel debuts at No.40 (3,438 sales). Their 1990 debut, MCMCX a.D was the first of two albums by the group to top the chart here and sold nearly 1m copies, whereas their most recent effort, 2008's Seven Lives, Many Faces reached No.116 and sold 20,519 copies.

The 11th and final new entry to the Top 75 is Battles (No.75, 1,704 sales), the 12th studio album by Swedish heavy metal band In Flames and the fifth to chart.

Dreamboats & Petticoats: 10th Anniversary Collection debuts atop the compilation chart on sales of 17,949 copies. Celebrating the music of the 1950s and 1960s, it is the fifth album in the hugely successful series to reach No.1, following Dreamboats & Petticoats Three (2009), Dreamboats & Petticoats Four (2010), The Petticoat Collection (2012) and Dreamboats & Petticoats Presents Three Steps To Heaven (also 2012). Despite its title, the latest album makes its debut a mere nine years and two weeks after the series opener. It is the 22nd album (21 multi-artist albums plus one by Billy Fury) in the series - of which 18 have made the top five - and achieves the highest first week sale since Dreamboats & Petticoats Five sold 18,224 copies on debut in 2011. Heralded as an illustration of the power of the grey pound, the latest Dreamboats & Petticoats chart-topper is at the expense of BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge 2016, which aims at a considerably younger demographic, and debuts at No.2 (15,365 sales). Cumulative sales for the Dreamboats & Petticoats series exceed 3.71m, with the very first album, which peaked at No.2, securing the biggest individual sale of 868,223.

Climbing for the fifth week in a row, overall album sales are up 17.82% week-on-week at 2,065,116, topping 2m for the first time this year. Streaming accounted for 569,508 sales – 27.58% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are up 21.05% week-on-week at 1,495,608, and are 1.57% above same week 2015 sales of 1,472,460.

Nearly 60k for Olly is great since he's had no hit single this time around, I thought Emeli would be #1 hands down, The big break between albums didn't help her at all.

So proud of Olly. Continuing to prove everyone wrong with a fourth number one album, especially those who were writing him off this time last year. Best pop album of the year to boot too!

I never imagined Emeli's second album would not only not make #1, but sell less than 50k.

I was thinking she'd underperform, but this time last week imagined still #1 on 70k and a sharp decline.

You Don't Know Love sold over 300k and peaked at #15. I think we can safely call it a hit single.

Pink Floyd sold 1162 copies of their £399.99 boxset? That's probably the best result of the week. ohmy.gif

Dont be a smart arse, You know what I meant, Olly as always had big number #1 hits from his albums apart from his last album but that still had a top 3 hit there the "hits" I meant not a top 15 that sold well, Despise being a "hit" its always the #1's or top 3's that people remember or atleast I do anyway.

I don't think he was being a smartass and tbh it wasn't really that clear yes it wasn't a top 10 but songs don't have to go top 10 to be hits by ollys previous standards it wasn't a hit but compared to many this year and the fact it still likely to go gold that is a hit

Blimey...much lower sales than I anticipated for Emeli and the Radio 1 Live Lounge album (beaten by that)

Considerably higher sales than I expected for Cliff and Michael Ball/Alfie Boe again laugh.gif Two former UK Eurovision entrants in the top five albums simultaneously...and both selling almost exclusively to those spending 'the grey pound' *.*

I expected the Live Lounge album to top the compilation chart instead of Dreamboats & Petticoats. I still think Live Lounge shouldn't make the songs album only as they could become hits if the option to cherry pick songs from there was available

I expect it's a copyright issue that doesn't allow this to happen.

how you guys explain the success of the Michael Ball/Alfie Boe album?? none has had a big album in ages, in recent years both have done low top10/top 20 positions, nothing extraordinary

shocking result for Sande, she's barely beaten Ball/Boe... expected considering the lukewarm response to Hurts but still pretty low considering the promo done (XF, Live Lounge, both singles play listed on R1 and R2, album of the week on R2, etc)

Real shame that Emeli Sande has missed out on a second number-one album, but fingers crossed it can be a consistent seller and perhaps sneak in a week in early 2017 (as Coldplay did). I wouldn't say she's 'flopping' this era, but perhaps streaming just really isn't working to her benefit. Let's see whether "Hurts" and "Breathing Underwater" can continue to chart during the coming weeks.
