ACTS REPLACING THEMSELVES AT No.1 – PLUS – THE No.1 ALBUM

If we count The Shadows in 1963, this UK Chart Feat has only been achieved by 4 Acts. It has really been achieved 6 times, as The Shadows managed it 3 times, in 1963.
Ariana Grande is the 1st Female to manage it. Madonna came close on W/E 17th August 1985. She had the No.1, (‘Into The Groove’), and No.2, ‘Holiday’), Singles, and she
also had the No.2 Album, with ‘Like A Virgin’. Her Album was held at No.2, that Week, by ‘Now That’s What I Call Music 5’. Ariana has the obvious advantage, that Compilation
Albums are no longer allowed into the Artist Album Chart. Ariana is the 1st Act since John Lennon to achieve it – February 1981 – 38 Years. Ariana is the 1st living Act to
achieve it, since The Beatles, in December 1963 – which is a huge gap of 55 Years and 2 Months!
Ariana is also the 1st Act to achieve it with New Entries, in the
Singles or Albums Charts. In her case, both of those Charts No.1’s are New Entries…

Counting The Shadows, only 7 named/credited Acts, have replaced themselves at No.1, in the UK Singles Chart.
Between them they did it 10 times. 6 Acts did it once. The Shadows did it 4 times. Once in 1960 and 3 times in 1963...
