Calvin Harris scores fifth Official Singles Chart Number One with ‘Blame’ featuring John Newman

Robert Plant's tenth solo LP was pushed into second place in the Official Albums Chart by Sam Smith

Calvin Harris has scored his fifth Official Singles Chart Number One with ‘Blame’ featuring John Newman.

Thirteen per cent of the song’s sales figure cames from streaming sites. It also makes for Newman’s third Number One, after 2012’s Rudimental collaboration ‘Feel The Love’ and last year’s ‘Love Me Again’. Other new entries in the chart include Chris Brown’s ‘New Flame’ featuring Usher and Rick Ross at Number 10 and Fall Out Boy at Number 22 with ‘Centuries’.

Over in the Official Albums Chart, Sam Smith’s ‘In The Lonely Hour’ remains at Number One, chalking up its fourth, non-consecutive week at the top, with Robert Plant’s tenth solo album ‘Lullaby And The Ceaseless Roar’ coming in at Number Two, despite leading the chart race for most of the week.


The rest of the Top Five is made up of Ed Sheeran’s ‘X’ at Number 3, Royal Blood’s ‘Royal Blood’ at Number Four and George Ezra’s ‘Wanted On Voyage’ at Number Five.

Other new entries include Ryan Adams’ self-titled new album at Number Six and Interpol’s ‘El Pintor’ at Number Nine. ‘Live At The Rainbow ’74′ by Queen is in at Number 11, and The Kooks’ new offering ‘Listen’ is at 16 while Banks’ ‘Goddess’ is at Number 20.
