Olly Murs set for second week at top of UK album chart

Singer's 'Right Place Right Time' at Number One for second week so far

Olly Murs looks set to hang onto the Number One spot in the UK Album Chart for a second week.

The singer’s third album ‘Right Place Right Time’ was last week’s bestseller, knocking Rihanna from the summit of the charts, and is currently on course to spend a second week at Number One according to date from the Official Charts Company.

Michael Buble’s ‘Christmas’ LP is currently at Number Two, while One Direction are at Number Three with ‘Take Me Home’. Rod Stewart’s ‘Merry Christmas Baby’ and Rihanna’s ‘Unapologetic’, meanwhile, are at Number Four and Five respectively.


Murs was also Number One in the UK Singles Chart last week, but his track ‘Troublemaker’ featuring Flo Rida looks set to drop to Number Two. It is currently being outsold by Gabrielle Aplin’s cover of ‘The Power Of Love’, which is being used soundtrack this year’s Christmas advertisement from John Lewis. Frankie Goes To Hollywood’s original version of the song, meanwhile, has climbed 26 places to re-enter the Top 40 at Number 33.

Bruno Mars’ ‘Locked Out Of Heaven’ is at Number Three and Labrinth’s collaboration with Emeli Sande, ‘Beneath Your Beautiful’, is at Number Four. One Direction’s ‘Little Things’ rounds out the Top Five.
