After finally reaching the peak of the albums tally in their home country of the U.K. last week, things have only gotten better for musical duo Michael Ball and Alfie Boe. The two artists are ruling yet again, and this time with an even larger sales figure. Together, the album the pair recorded…together…moved an impressive 110,000 units in the past seven days, which makes it the second-largest sales frame of 2016 behind only David Bowie’s Blackstar.
Together has been on the British charts for weeks now, but it only finally made it to No. 1 last week after a lengthy run. With the year almost up and the majority of massive releases already available, Together could remain on top for some time to come.
Up again to No. 2 is Glory Days, the fourth record from female singing troupe Little Mix. The record became their first chart-topper late last month, and since then it hasn’t gone very far.
Despite the fact that it first started in the top spot two months ago back in late October, Elvis Presley’s The Wonder Of You has risen yet again to No. 3. The compilation, which matches popular Elvis songs with new classical arrangements, has proven to be an incredible success story, and there is sure to be another one of these kinds of albums coming in the next year or two.
Down to No. 4 this week is The Rolling Stones’ Blue & Lonesome, which has also enjoyed a good few weeks. The album debuted at No. 1, and since then has only slipped slightly. Behind the legendary rockers comes British pop singer Olly Murs with his latest, 24 Hrs, his fourth consecutive chart leader. Robbie Williams’ The Heavy Entertainment Show, also a one-week leader, is a non-mover at No. 6. Thanks to plenty of holiday shoppers looking to get their young ones something, Bruno Mars’ 24k Magic grows two spots to No. 7.
Michael Bublé occupies the next two spots with some of his biggest titles. First is Christmas at No. 8, which returns to the highest tier on the charts quite often when winter rolls around. Immediately behind the crooner’s holiday effort is Nobody But Me, his most recent album of mostly original material.
Steady in last place is Emeli Sande’s sophomore effort, Long Live The Angels, which just barely missed making it to the peak a few weeks ago.
