Ten weeks at number one for Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus' run at the top of the singles chart extends to a tenth week. U2 get their eleventh number one album.

Miley Cyrus gets a tenth week at number one in the singles chart. U2 top the albums chart with a collection of rerecordings.

Miley Cyrusís Flowers makes it into double figures, extending its run at the top of the singles chart to ten weeks. The last song to get at least ten weeks at the top was Harry Stylesí As It Was last year. Before that it was Ed Sheeranís Bad Habits. Cyrusís chances of matching Tones & Iís eleven weeks at number one (the longest ever by a female solo artist) are reduced substantially by the release of a new Ed Sheeran single today (Friday).

The release of the new Ed Sheeran single may also scupper the chances of Calvin Harris and Ellie Gouldingís Miracle ever making it to number one. It climbs one place to number two this week. If it's any consolation to them, it did top the sales-only chart last week.

The Weeknd is at number three with the revived Die For You (thanks, in part, to the version with added Ariana Grande). Remaís Calm Down climbed to a new peak of number four in its 28th week in the top forty and its fourteenth week in the top ten. Libiancaís People moves into the top five at number five.

Any suggestion that Taylor Swift and/or her management are obsessed with her performance in the UK charts will have taken a bit of a knock when she released four new tracks last week. After all, the chart rule which limits to three the number of singles an individual artist can have in the chart at any one time meant that it was impossible for all four to make it. Furthermore, she still had the chart-topping Anti-Hero in the chart. As it turned out, the continuing popularity of Anti-Hero means that only two of the new songs are in the chart. Perhaps surprisingly, only one of them is in the top forty - All Of The Girls You Loved Before is at number eleven. Anti-Hero climbs back up to number eighteen.

Since Hozier had a huge hit with the excellent Take Me To Church in 2014, his chart career has been somewhat modest. The follow-up Someone New just about reached the top twenty but, since then, he has failed to trouble the top forty again. Until now that is. Eat Your Young (one of the stranger pieces of advice in the chart this week) enters at number 22 to give the Irish singer his first UK hit for eight years a week after St Patrickís Day.

While Lewis Capaldi fans (and there are lots of them) wait patiently for his new album, there is another new single for people to enjoy / tolerate / avoid (delete as applicable). How Iím Feeling Now is a new entry at number 24. The two previous singles from the album both went to number one although the second of them depended on some rather controversial tactics to get there.

Meghan Trainor enters at number 27 with Mother, just a few days after Mothering Sunday. She has released some tolerable singles in the past but this isnít one of them. Itís rubbish. It is, though, a good deal better than Jiminís Set Me Free Pt 2 which enters at number 30 and is truly dreadful. The best charting single with Pt 2 in the title is, of course, Pink Floydís 1979 number one Another Brick In The Wall Part 2. The thought that there might be at least one more part of Set Me Free is scary. Jimin is a member of BTS and this tripe enters just a few weeks after his bandmate J-Hope had a solo hit single.

The last two new entries are of contrasting quality. Zara Larssonís Canít Tame Her is not terrible by any means but it falls well short of the quality of Tom Grennanís Here. Unfortunately, the British public seem to disagree as Canít Tame Her enters at number 38, one place ahead of Here.

U2 have joined the list of acts who have chosen to record rearranged versions of some of their archive material as a sort of halfway house between a new album and another Best Of set. In this case they have chosen to record stripped down versions of the songs, in contrast to their usual stadium rock style.

Songs Of Surrender contains new versions of some of their best-known songs (With Or Without You, Where The Streets Have No Name and Vertigo to name three) as well as album tracks. Many of the tracks originally appeared on Songs Of Innocence, the album that appeared in everybodyís iTunes library free of charge (and uninvited). In one of the weekís less surprising developments it goes straight to the top to give U2 an eleventh number one album, their first since 2009. Their 2006 Greatest Hits collection re-enters at number 38..

The Weeknd is at number two with his Highlights collection.. Miley Cyrus falls two places to number three with Endless Summer Vacation. Pinkís Trustfall is at number five.

Taylor Swift kicked off a world tour this week with much written about her Springsteen-esque three-hour set. Her latest set Midnights returns to the top five at number four. Reputation returns to the top forty at number 33 while 1989, Lover and Folklore all climb within the top forty.

We donít normally have to wait very long between new albums in the chart from acts based in Brighton and Hove. This week the south coast city is represented by Black Honey who reach their highest ever chart position with A Fistful Of Peaches at number six. The only other new entry comes from American rock band All Time Low who are at number twelve with Tell Me Iím Alive. It isnít a new all-time low for them but it is their lowest position since Dirty Work reached number twenty (their all-time high at the time) in 2011.
