Florence And The Machine have returned to the top on the Official Streaming Chart with Spectrum.
The London-based band, who were knocked off Number 1 three weeks ago by East London rapper Wiley’s Heatwave, have become the first act to return to the top spot since the Official Streaming Chart was launched.
The Official Streaming Chart is compiled by the Official Charts Company on behalf of the British music industry, and has been running since May. It is the first chart which ranks audio streams from both ad-funded and subscription streaming services in the UK, which reflects the increasing interest in the new generation of music services such as Spotify, Deezer, Napster and We7.
Former Official Singles Chart Number 1 stars Sam And The Womp climb two places to Number 2 with summer anthem Bom Bom, while Wiley is at Number 3. Taylor Swift’s latest track, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, is up seven places from Number 11 to Number 4 this week, while Rita Ora’s How We Do (Party) (Number 5) completes this week’s Top 5.
There are 12 new entries on this week’s Official Streaming Chart. Two Door Cinema Club, who released their second album Beacon last week, are this week’s highest new entry at 38 with Sleep Alone, while their tracks Next Year (64), Handshake (68), What You Know (88), Undercover Martyn (95) and Wake Up (96) also make their Official Streaming Chart debuts today.
The Vaccines, who beat Two Door Cinema Club to score this week’s Number 1 album on the Official Albums Chart, have two new entries on this week’s chart. Teenage Icon is at 63 and No Hope is at Number 77.
The Script FT Will.I.Am’s Hall Of Fame debuts at Number 46, while this week’s Official Singles Chart Number 1, Ne-Yo’s Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself) is at Number 70. P!nk’s Blow Me (One Last Kiss) debuts at 93 and The XX complete this week’s Official Streaming Chart new entries with Crystalised at Number 97.
