•  Singles: No change – has Lukas Graham really been seven weeks at #1? (Yes!)
•  Albums: Zayn debuts at #1, Adele back at #2…and Molly soundtrack still #3

Singles

“7 Years” from Lukas Graham has held onto top spot for a seventh week with Alan Walker holding again at #2 with “Faded”.

The two newcomers to the top 10 who are reaching a new chart high are Mike Posner with his “I Took A Pill In Ibiza” up from #12 to #5 and Sia with “Cheap Thrills” up from #11 to #6.

Two artists look like they are destined to the top 10 on their chart performance this week:
#25 to #13 “Don’t Let Me Down” from The Chainsmokers who are in Australia this week
#23 to #15 “The Sound Of Silence” from Disturbed

The highest and only new debut entry in the top 50 came from Gnash with “I Hate U, I Love U” featuring Olivia O’Brien.

Climbing into the top 50 at #43 from #79 in its second week is Iggy Azalea with “Team”.

Albums

The fifth new #1 in five weeks is Zayn with “Mind Of Mine”. The debut album from the former One Direction member was the best performing of eight new releases which debuted in the top 50. Zayn also managed to debut at #1 in the US, becoming the first UK solo artist to achieve that feat with his first album.

The only albums to spend more than a week at the top of the chart this year are Adele’s “25” and the Molly soundtrack.

Two other albums entered the chart in the top 10:
#4 “The Black” from Asking Alexandria
#10 “Beautiful Lies” from Birdy
Taylor Swift has managed to re-enter the top 10 at #9 with “1989” after 75 weeks.
