Jungle queen Katy Perry remains perched on the Official Singles Chart throne for a second week running with Roar.
The California Gurl shot to the top of the Official Singles Chart last Sunday with the lead track from her hotly anticipated new album, Prism. Roar became the fastest selling UK single of Katy’s career with sales of more than 179,500 copies during its first week of release. Today Roar adds a further 103,000 copies to its sales tally, making Katy the undisputed queen of the Official Singles Chart for a second week running.
After making its Top 40 debut five weeks ago, OneRepublic’s Counting Stars has continued to climb northward, this week soaring 11 places to Number 2 to give the US band their highest charting UK single to date; their previous best was 2007’s Apologize, which peaked at Number 3.
Ellie Goulding’s Burn, which was co-written with OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder, is down one place to Number 3, while Avicii’s Wake Me Up (4) and Drake’s Hold On We’re Going Home FT Majid Jordan (5) complete this week’s Top 5.
Coldplay score this week’s highest new entry with Atlas (12). The single is taken from the soundtrack to the new Hunger Games film, Catching Fire. London MC Example debuts one place behind them with All The Wrong Places (13), the lead single from his upcoming fifth album.
Manchester DJ and producer Ben Pearce makes his Top 40 debut with What I Might Do (25), while Lethal Bizzle clocks up a seventh Top 40 hit with Party Right (29).
