The blonde beauty shot to international success in a matter of months.
Meghan Trainor’s latest single, All About That Bass – you know, the one you haven’t been able to get out of your head for a month now – has reached No. 1 in the UK charts. The song’s first week out in full release saw it shoot straight for the top of the UK chart, just like it did in the US a month prior.
Trainor's celebration of curves shot her to chart success in the UK and US charts.
Fun fact: according to Billboard, All About That Bass is the first UK chart topper to get there entirely on streaming plays (well, mostly on streaming plays, anyway). Streams of 1.17 million saw it rise 53-33, and after its full release, raced to No. 1 on the Official Charts Company’s new data Sunday (Oct. 5). Its combined sales in the first week come out to 144,000 with 1,4 million streaming plays accounting for about over 9% of the aggregated tally (that means there’s a bit of math involved, so let’s not get too bogged down.)
Meanwhile, George Ezra’s Wanted On Voyage finally climbed to the top of the album chart after 14 weeks on the list. The album has been in the chart every week since its June release. This week also sees two singles from his first album climb up – Budapest went from 12 to 10 and Blame it On Me.
Elsewhere, Sam Smith improved 3-2 with his former No. 1 album In The Lonely Hour (Capitol/Universal), while Ed Sheeran’s sales powerhouse X (Asylum/Warner Music) rebounded 6-3.
