‘All About That Bass’ remains at No. 1
LONDON - Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” secured a fourth week at No. 1 in the British singles music chart on Sunday, the Official Charts Company said, equaling Clean Bandit’s record as the longest-running chart-topper of the year.
Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran climbed two places from last week to take the second spot with his single “Thinking Out Loud,” its 18th week on the chart, while his album “X” dropped one spot to third. House duo Waze & Odyssey’s “Bump & Grind 2014” was the highest new singles chart entry at No. 3, their remix of R. Kelly’s single outperforming the original, which peaked at No. 8 in 1994.
“UKIP Calypso,” a song promoting the anti-EU UK Independence Party that was withdrawn from sales earlier in the week after accusations of racism, charted just outside the UK Top 40 at No. 44, the Official Charts Company said.
London-born singer-songwriter Ben Howard also topped the album chart for the first time with “I Forget Where We Were.” Reuters
