Welcome to your weekly round-up of this week's big new single, album and home entertainment releases, all in one place, only on Official Charts.

Straight off the bat, we have the first biggest release of 2024, from a true pop superstar. Ariana Grande has been keeping herself busy in Oz, filming for the two-part live-action adaption of the musical Wicked as Glinda, but when the SAG-AFTRA actors strike shut down the set, she had some surprise free time to head back into the studio...and now we're finally seeing the results of these sessions. 

Ari's brand new single yes, and? sees her reunite with super-producer Max Martin for the first time in nearly half a decade - together they've created some of Ariana's most enduring pop hits; everything from Problem and Break Free to No Tears Left To Cry and the biggest banger of them all, Into You. 

The first single from Ari's forthcoming seventh studio album (as-of-yet only given the placeholder title AG7), yes and? promises to bring Ariana right back into the centre of the pop world, containing an interpolation of one of the biggest hit's from pop's own mother of the house, Madonna's Vogue. 

Elsewhere, Lil Nas X is also mounting a comeback, nearly three years on from the release of his debut studio album, MONTERO. That album's biggest hit, the UK Number 1 single Montero (Call Me By Your Name), played fast and loose with religious iconography in an intelligent parable to the shame of battling with your sexual identity. Now, Lil Nas X's brand new single, J Christ, is looking to launch his second studio album, although much has been made online about the choice to once again incorporate Christian imagery in the single's promotional shots. 

In other single releases this week, Ella Henderson teams up with Rudimental for brand new release Alibi, which samples Coolio's Gangsta's Paradise, one of the best-selling singles in the history of the UK chart. Jennifer Lopez is also back this week, Can't Get Enough is an irresistibly funky return to form for Jenny from the Block, which serves as the lead single for the forthcoming visual album This Is Me...Now. 

As Murder on the Dancefloor continues to make gains on the Official Singles Chart, fans of Sophie Ellis-Bextor's 2001 Saltburn smash can now enioy a brand-new remix EP, issued to streaming for the first time ever.

And on albums this week, The Vaccines issue their sixth album, Pick-Up Full Of Pink Carnations. Produced by US hitmaker Andrew Wells (Halsey, Bebe Rexha) can it become the sixth consecutive Top 10 LP for the band? The Vaccines will be joining The Record Club next week to discuss the making of the album

The new format for the top 40 singles chart is wrong!  If it entered the top 40 for the first time it should show as new, But some singles are not showing as new in the top 40 even though it is there first time hitting the top 40 they possibly got to 43 the week before but then shows as being in the chart for 2 weeks. The old format of the chart took that into consideration. Will this ever be rectified as Im in the middle of cataloguing my entire collection of over 25'000 Singles and this has messed me up as some are not showing as ever entered the chart as a new entry even though they obviously were. This happens with more or less every entry hitting the Number 1 spot for the first time. Please get this right. To some of us facts are the most important thing!
