Can Ellie Goulding make it three weeks at the top?

by Martin


Ellie Goulding recently scored her first UK Number 1 single and according to information released by The Official Charts Company she looks set to remain top of the singles chart for a third week running.

26 year old Ellie Goulding is currently at Number (1) in the charts with her latest single ‘Burn’ and sales figures show that in this midweek update that the star could remain there for another week.

‘Burn’ which is taken from the ‘Halcyon’ which Ellie Goulding recently released as a repackaged version knocked Miley Cyrus off the top of the UK Singles Chart earlier in the month to give the star her first ever UK Number 1 single since she shot to fame in 2010.

Sales data according to The Official Charts Company show that there are only 4,500 copies between ‘Burn’ and Avicii’s ‘Wake Me Up’ which is currently sitting at Number (2).


When Ellie Goulding was revealed as the Official UK Number 1 she was at the annual V Festival so was unable to accept her award live in the studio. Instead, Rita Ora surprised the star with her award live at the festival.

Elsewhere in the Top 5 ‘Sonnentanz (Sun Don’t Shine)’ by Klangkarussell FT Will Heard remains at Number (3) while Rizzle Kicks enter the Top 5 with their new single ‘Lost Generation’ which enters at Number (4).

Rounding off the Top 5 this week is the Cedric Gervais remix of Lana Del Rey’s Summertime Sadness which remains at Number (5) in this midweek update.


Taking a look outside the Top 5, other than the new entry by Rizzle Kicks there are four other entries for this midweek update.

Shane Filan, formerly of Westlife looks set to score his first Top 10 single as a solo artist with ‘Everything To Me’ which is currently at Number (7).

The 1975 enter the charts this week at Number (26) with ‘Sex’.

‘Things We Lost In The Fire’ by Bastille moves up 14 places to Number (38) and ‘Right Place Right Time’ by Olly Murs moves 22 places to Number (39) and make their Official Top 40 debuts after being released last Sunday (August 25th).
