The record-breaking run at #1 continues for Tones and I with Dance Monkey sitting at #1 for 19 of its 29 weeks on the chart. Meanwhile her track Never Seen the Rain reaches a new peak of #8 after 20 weeks on the chart.
Just two chart debuts in the top 50 – one of them the only change to the top 10:
#10 The Weeknd with Heartless
#16 The Weeknd with Blinding Lights
Both tracks from the Canadian singer’s forthcoming fourth album Heartland. The title track is his seventh time in the top 10.
Three artists crashed back into the top 50 with Christmas standards that always come out of the woodwork in December.
Highest of the re-entries was Mariah Carey with All I Want For Christmas Is You at #20. The former #1 (only topping the chart last year after first charting in 1994) is six times platinum.
Wham!’s Last Christmas is new at #38 with the three times platinum tune peaking at #3 in all the years it has snuck back onto the chart.
Michael Bublé’s It’s Beginning to Look at Lot like Christmas re-enters at #42 after first appearing as an album track in 2011 and then as a single in its own right in 2012.
The Christmas Present is UK superstar Robbie Williams’ fourth solo #1 and his first since 2009 and Reality Killed the Video Star. It moves from #2 to top spot in its second week on the chart.
There were plenty of movers near the top of the chart, but none were new entries:
#24 to #2: Frozen 2 Soundtrack
#10 to #3: Human Nature with Still Telling Everybody: 30 Years of Hits
#19 to #6: Michael Bublé with Christmas
The three chart debuts to crack the top 50 were all in the lower reaches of the chart:
#45 Pink Floyd with The Later Years 1987-2019
#47 Trippie Redd with A Love Letter To You 4
#48 Jimmy Barnes with My Criminal Record/Modus Operandi
Lots of other Christmas releases also doing well this week include albums from Mariah Carey (#19 Merry Christmas), Human Nature (#20 The Christmas Album), John Farnham and Olivia Newton-John (#27 Friends for Christmas), The Seekers (#33 We Wish You a Merry Christmas) and Bing Crosby (#42 Bing at Christmas).
