Released in October of last year, Calvin Harris' 18 Months debuted at Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart, giving the Scottish DJ and producer his second chart-topping album. 18 Months has spawned seven Top 20 singles, with Harris adding his seemingly golden touch to Number 1 hits We Found Love with Rihanna and Sweet Nothing with Florence Welch.
Emeli Sande, whose debut album Our Version Of Events was the biggest selling album of 2012, slips one place to Number 2, while Rita Ora climbs five places to Number 3 with ORA. Ed Sheeran’s + is up nine places to Number 4, and Jake Bugg’s self-titled debut album is up 11 slots to Number 5 after he appeared on Jools Holland’s annual New Year’s Eve Hootenanny.
In a traditionally quiet period for new releases, there are no new entries so far this week.
This week’s Official Albums Chart Update highest climber is David Guetta’s Nothing But The Beat, which soars 26 places from 52 to Number 26. Plan B’s third album, Ill Manors, which also servers at the soundtrack to the London-born singer/songwriter’s award-winning film of the same name, is up 23 places to Number 38, while Icelandic folk/pop outfit Of Monsters And Men’s My Head Is An Animal climbs 21 places to Number 39.
