Weekly Music Charts for 2017
UK charts for week ending 4th August:

SINGLES:

It seems there’s no stopping Despacito – the track has fought off some strong competition to claim another week at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart.

The Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber track logs a 11th week in pole position and is now one of the UK’s longest-reigning chart toppers of all time.
Only six songs in the Official Charts’s 65-year history have spent longer at Number 1, while the only other songs to manage 11 weeks at the summit is Rose Marie by US country singer Slim Whitman in 1955. Find out which songs have spent the longest at Number 1 in the UK here.

Finishing less than 2,500 combined sales behind Despacito is former Number 1 Wild Thoughts, by DJ Khaled, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, while Calvin Harris’ Feels ft. Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry and Big Sean is at 3.
New entries and high climbers
Elsewhere in the Top 10, Rudimental’s Sun Comes Up ft. James Arthur continues to climb, moving two spots to 8, and Dua Lipa’s New Rules zooms ten places to crack into the Top 10 to Number 9. It’s the star’s third single to reach the top tier of the Official Chart: 2016’s No Lie with Sean Paul topped out at 10 and Be The One peaked at 9 in February this year.

Further down, Demi Lovato’s Sorry Not Sorry moves 11 places to a new peak this week at 16, and Finnish newcomer Alma breaks into the Top 20 with Chasing Highs, up six to Number 18.  


ALBUMS:

Congratulations to Arcade Fire, who have scored their third consecutive Number 1 album on the Official Albums Chart with Everything Now.
The Canadian group’s fifth record shifted just over 36,000 combined sales, outselling its closest competitor - Ed Sheeran’s Divide – by 2:1 to take this week’s top spot. The band previously topped the chart with 2010's BRIT Award and GRAMMY winning The Suburbs, and 2013's Reflektor.
Everything Now is also the best-selling vinyl album of the week and was the most popular record purchased in independent retailers this week too.

Meanwhile, Rag'n'Bone Man's Human rebound after falling from the Top 5 for the first time last week after 23 weeks. The BRITs Critics' Choice winner is this week's Number 3, up three.
Last week’s Number 1, Lana Del Rey's Lust For Life, slips to 4, and Passenger's new album The Boy Who Cried Wolf lands at 5. Announced just two days before it was released last Friday, the LP becomes his fourth Top 5 entry.
New entries and high climbers
Alice Cooper is back this week with his first studio album for six years – Paranormal debuts at Number 6 to become his first Top 10 album in over a decade. Not far behind is Dua Lipa, who on the strength of her new single New Rules climbs 15 places to Number 11 with her self-titled debut.

The first three in a series of Pet Shop Boys album reissues - Nightlife, Release and Fundamental – enter at 29, 30 and 33 respectively, and there’s also a new entry for post-punk band The Fall, whose 32nd studio album New Facts Emerge lands at 35.
Finally, summer sales are running across various retailers, and several albums slashed in price rocket up the chart this week. They are: Glen Campbell’s Adios (13); HAIM’s Something To Tell You (15); DAMN. by Kendrick Lamar (18); Lorde’s Melodrama (22); The Bee Gees’ Timeless (31); and Witness from Katy Perry (38).
