Anti-Hero remains at number one
Taylor Swift's Anti-Hero tops the singles chart for a fourth week. Louis Tomlinson gets his first solo number one album.

Taylor Swift remains at the top of the singles chart. Louis Tomlinson surprisingly beats Briuce Springsteen to claim a number one album.

Taylor Swiftís run at the top of the singles chart with Anti-Hero extends to a fourth week. Sam Smith and Bebe Rexha also remain where they were last week, at number two with Unholy. Meghan Trainor is up to number four with Made You Look. Oliver Tree and Robin Schulzís Miss You continues its slow climb up the chart. It rises one place to number three. Venbee and Goddard climb to number five with Messy In Heaven.

Bugzy Malone and TeeDee enter at number eighteen with an incoherent mess called Out Of Nowhere. It is Maloneís sixth top forty hit and provides TeeDee, a 20-year-old producer from Sheffield, with his first hit.

While it would be fair to say that I am not exactly in Stormzyís target market, I have enjoyed some of his songs with Blinded By Your Grace being a particular favourite. However, his latest single Firebabe, a new entry at number 26, is exceptionally dull (unless you compare it with something by Drake).

A few weeks after Rihanna returned to the chart with a song from the film, another song from the new Black Panther film enters the top forty. Alone by Burna Boy is at number 32. Given a choice, Iíd rather hear Henry Manciciís theme from Pink Panther.

Tiesto made his UK top forty debut in 2001 by which time he was already in his thirties. However, he has had to wait another fifteen years for a prolonged spell of chart success, a run that is still continuing. His latest single 10:35, which features Tate McRae, enters at number 39 to give him his fourth hit of the 2020s.

The final, new entry, at number 40, is another song that owes its success to Tiktok. It is also another song by somebody who has chosen a rather pretentious version of his name as a moniker. Jacob Lawson, known - like many Jacobs - as Jake chose to invert a capital A, delete the horizontal line and style himself Jvke, still pronouncing it as Jake - as you do. He makes his UK top forty debut with the song Golden Hour. The song is OK, but Iím relieved 10:35 doesnít refer to its length.

It may only be mid-November, but the festive song onslaught has begun. True to tradition, the first to enter the chart is Mariah Careyís All I Want For Christmas Is You at number 36. On Sunday it will become the first Christmas song to be in the chart when a FIFA World Cup finals match is played. On that subject, no sign of Three Lions yet. Thanks to daniellovesmusic at Buzzjack for pointing out that Careyís song is the first song ever to spend 80 weeks in the top forty.

There is also a re-entry for Eminemís Mockingbird at number 38. It sounds just as boring now as it did in 2005 when it reached number four. Yes, itís Tiktok again. Tom Odellís Another Love climbs to number twelve, just two places below its original 2013 peak.

While Harry Styles is by far the most successful former member of One Direction, his erstwhile bandmates have also enjoyed some chart success as solo artists. Last week Louis Tomlinson released his second solo album, Faith In The Future. While his debut set Walls stalled at number four in 2020, this release has gone to number one. It leaves Liam Payne as the only former One Directioner not to have had a chart-topping album. His only solo album to date didnít even reach the top ten.

For the whole of the 21st century, every standard Bruce Springstten studio album has hit number one in the UK. The only release that didnít make it was his excellent Seeger Sessions album in 2006. That album comprised covers of songs either written or made famous by the great Pete Seeger, one of Springsteenís key influences.

Sixteen years on, he has followed it up with another album of covers, this time of some soul classics under the title Only The Strong Survive. As well as the title track, the album also includes versions of Nightshift (The Commodores), What Becomes Of The Brokenhearted (Jimmy Ruffin) and The Sun Ainít Gonna Shine Any More. The latter song, having been performed originally by Frankie Valli and turned into a hit by The Walker Brothers in a characteristically brilliant version, isnít really a soul song in my book but its inclusion is welcome here. The album enters at number two.

Talor Swift slips one place to number three with Midnights. Drake and 21 Savage fall to number four after a week at the top with Her Loss,

Andrea, Matteo and Virginia Bocelli re-enter at number five with their festive offering Family Christmas. There is another festive album at number fourteen in the form of Aled Jones and Russell Watsonís third collaboration Christmas With Aled & Russell. Among the songs they tackle are I Believe In Father Christmas (the Greg Lake version is one of the best songs missing from the regular list of top forty re-entries), A Spaceman Came Travelling (the song that shows Chris de Burgh is capable of something far better than the execrable Lady In Red) and Mistletoe And Wine (one of Cliff Richardís better Christmas releases).

It includes a version of Walking In The Air, the song which launched Jones career, simply because Peter Auty (the boy whose recording is included in the soundtrack to The Snowman) couldnít perform it when it was released as a single as his voice had broken. The song also featured on One Voice At Christmas, an album on which he duetted with himself using old recordings from his days as a boy soprano.

Nigerian singer-songwriter Wizkid is at number sixteen with More Love Less Ego.

Finally, an honourable mention for Christine And The Queenís new album Redcar - Les Adorables Etoiles (Prologue). The album didn't quite make the top forty (it is at 45) but it should have done. The reviews have been fairly mixed, but I really enjoyed it.
