Meghan Trainor tops Official Albums Chart with debut Title

It’s all about that Number 1 for Meghan Trainor as Title debuts at the top this week.

Title finished 5,000 copies ahead of nearest rival, Ed Sheeran’s x, to secure the Number 1 spot on the Official Albums Chart, following the album’s chart-topping run in the US, Canada and Australia. Meghan now has two Number 1s under her belt – her debut single All About That Bass topped the Official Singles Chart in 2014.

Last week’s Number 1, Uptown Special from Mark Ronson, takes a tumble to Number 3, while Sam Smith’s In The Lonely Hour and George Ezra’s Wanted On Voyage hold steady at Number 4 and 5 respectively. This means this week’s Official Albums Chart Top 5 contains releases that have all topped the chart at some point.

New entries

Indie rock group The Charlatans are new at Number 7 with 12th studio album Modern Nature, while singer-songwriter Rae Morris’s debut Unguarded is in at Number 9.

US rock band Papa Roach score their fifth UK Top 40 with F.E.A.R (13), while former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes makes his solo Top 40 debut with second LP Matador (18).

Bethel Music’s We Will Not Be Shaken – Live is at 34 and completes the new entries.

There are three re-entries in today’s Top 40. Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit are at Number 11 today with third studio album Stay Gold, while Foo FightersGreatest Hits leaps 38 places to land at Number 26. Maroon 5’s V rounds things off, climbing ten places to Number 37.
