After four weeks on the Official Streaming Chart, the 22-year-old US singer / songwriter’s We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together has knocked Florence And The Machine’s Spectrum off Number 1.
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.
Sam And The Womp’s Bom Bom holds firm at Number 2, while The Script’s Hall Of Fame FT Will.I.Am, which hit Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart on Sunday, climbs 43 places to Number 3. Florence And The Machine’s Spectrum slides three places to Number 4, while Owl City FT Carly Rae Jepsen’s Good Time is up 10 places to Number 5.
There are 16 new entries on this week’s Official Streaming Chart. Of those 16, 12 are from The XX’s latest album, Coexist, which debuted at Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart on Sunday. The band’s highest charting new entry is Chained at Number 35.
Flo Rida’s I Cry debuts on the Official Streaming Chart at Number 39, The Killers’ Runaways is at 68, while Plan B’s Deepest Shame completes this week’s new entries, entering at Number 81.
