It’s another record breaking week for Sabrina Carpenter, as she becomes the first female artist in Official Chart history to spend three consecutive weeks at Numbers 1 and 2 concurrently. 

The unstoppable Sabrina nets a third consecutive week at the summit with Please Please Please, with her former chart-topper Espresso settling in at Number 2 for the third week on the run. Espresso is this week’s most-streamed track of the week, though, logging 7.1 million combined streams to Please Please Please’s 7 million. 

Sabrina now matches The Beatles, who have achieved the same feat on two occasions. The Fab Four managed three consecutive weeks at Numbers 1 and 2 in 1963 (I Want To Hold Your Hand and She Loves You) and again in 1967 (Hello Goodbye and Magical Mystery Tour EP). Only Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran have managed more - Justin managed four weeks in 2015. Ed, meanwhile, logged five consecutive weeks on two separate occasions in 2017.
