English boy band, Rixton, have managed to knock will.i.am and Cody Wise off the number one spot with their début single ‘Me and My Broken Heart’. The band rose to fame with their track ‘Make Out’ which had an accompanying video that satirised famous music videos of 2013, including Miley Cyrus’ ‘Wrecking Ball’ and Lady Gaga’s ‘Applause’.
Nicole Scherzinger has also entered the top 10 this week with her new single, ‘Your Love’, in at number 6. The catchy, tropical track is to be taken from Scherzinger’s second studio album, which is currently untitled. Scherzinger has had previous solo hits with ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’ and ‘Right There’, as well as the many she had when she was the main vocalist of The Pussycat Dolls.
Ariana Grande’s ‘Problem’, George Ezra’s ‘Budapest’ and Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’ remain exactly how they were last week in the top 10. The biggest climber is Vance Joy’s ‘Riptide’ which jumps a hefty 24 places into 37th position. The biggest fall is awarded to Example’s ‘One More Day (Stay With Me)’ which tumbles 17 places to 36th place.
In the album chart, Ed Sheeran maintains his grip on the number one spot with his second studio album, X. Having now spent its fourth week in top spot and having the lead number one single ‘Sing’, X has most certainly been a commercial success for the singer-songwriter.
The album chart also sees some new entries, with Morrissey’s World Peace Is None Of Your Business entering in second place. Jungle’s self-titled début album also enters in the top 10, in seventh spot. Rise Against’s The Black Market and Jason Mraz’s Yes have also arrived in the UK Top 40 this week.
Dolly Parton, Sam Smith and George Ezra are all non-movers in the album chart’s top 10, keeping hold of their titles with pleasing sales figures.
