Miley Cyrus's Flowers continue to blossom
Miley Cyrus breaks a run of one-week chart-toppers by getting a second week at the summit. The Reytons top the albums chart for the first time.

Miley Cyrus remains at number one in the singles chart. Yorkshire band Reytons have the number one album.

Miley Cryrus’s distinctly average Flowers gets a second week at number one. This is the first week since early December that the number one spot has not changed hands. The run of six one-week chart-toppers (including two non-consecutive weeks for Wham) is the longest since August and September 2015.

Unchanged top fives have been a bit of a regular occurrence recently and we have another one this week. Raye and 070 Shake are still at number two with Escapism with Sza’s Kill Bill still at number three. The number four spot is still occupied by Taylor Swift’s Anti-Hero while Venbee & Goddard remain at number five with Messy In Heaven.

The highest new entry (but not quite the worst one) is at number nine where we find Headie One’s ode to Martin’s Sofa. It is only the second hit single about a sofa following Kooks’ Sofa Song from 2005. There have been several top forty singles about chairs, plenty about beds and one about separate tables.

Coi Leray from New Joyzy enters at number 26 with the utterly diabolical Players. Even at just two minutes and 20 seconds it is far too long.

Sabrina Carpenter first made her name as an actor, starring in Girl Meets World on American television. As the title suggests, that was a spin-off from Boy Meets World which aired in the 1990s. That show, in turn, was effectively an attempt to match the success of The Wonder Years when the actor in the lead role was rather too old to play a schoolboy. The similarity between the two shows was even closer than that - the lead actor in Boy Meets Girl was the younger brother of the lead actor in Boy Meets World.

Anyway, returning to Sabrina Carpenter, she has now embarked on a singing career and she enters the top forty at number 32 with Nonsense (or, as Chris Morris might say, Nonce Sense - look it up).

Popcaan returns to the top forty after an absence of nearly seven years with We Caa Done at number 37. Even with the presence of Drake as a featured artist this is still a decent song. I think I need a lie-down after saying something nice about Drake.

Pinkpantheress released Boy’s A Liar as a single last November. It spent a couple weeks in the to p100 before dropping out. It returned at the beginning of the year (following the post-Christmas clear-out) and now becomes her third top forty hit by entering at number 38.

Nick Douwma, recording under the moniker Sub Focus, had his first top forty hit back in 2009. He had two number 41 hits the following year but didn’t return to the top forty until 2012. After two hits that year and a further three in 2013, he then went quiet again. Now, ten years after his last top forty hit, he has another one with Ready To Fly at number 40. It features Dimension who makes his top forty debut.

Lewis Capaldi’s Forget Me returns to the top forty again at number 35. Cian Ducrot climbs to number nineteen with I’ll Be Waiting, matching the peak of his only other hit single All For You.

One of Arctic Monkeys’ defining characteristics in their early career was the distinctive Sheffield sound of Alex Turners’ vocals. As a result, my first reaction on hearing The Reytons for the first time a few years ago was to assume that they too came from the South Yorkshire city. Sources differ on precisely where they come from but I’m sticking to Sheffield. Their debut album, released in 2021, reached number eleven. Album number two, What’s Rock ‘n’ Roll, goes ten places higher to give them their first number one album. Both albums have been released on their own label which makes this feat even more impressive.

Taylor Swift’s Midnights remains at number two. Sza’s SOS is another non-mover, staying at number three. The Weeknd’s Highlights climbs one place to number four.

Two years ago Italian band Måneskin were almost unknown outside their home country. That changed when they won the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest. Their winning song did moderately well in the UK charts but two other songs (including a cover of Four Seasons’ Beggin’) did a lot better.

Måneskin’s first post-Eurovision album, Rush!, is also the first to have a majority of songs in English. It enters at number five to give the band a first top forty album.

The appearance of an album called Rush! serves as a welcome reminder of another charting Rush. No, not Jennifer’s diabolical dirge but Canadian rock band Rush’s brilliant single Spirit Of Radio.

After the death of founder and singer Phil Lynott in 1986, a Thin Lizzy revival seemed rather unlikely. However, it happened and, technically, they still exist. However, when they started releasing new material, they did so under the name Black Star Riders. Their fifth album under that name, Wrong Side Of Paradise, is at number six.

Thin Lizzy were formed in Dublin which is also the home city of The Murder Capital. They are at number sixteen with Gigi’s Recovery.
