It’ll come as no surprise to anybody that the track that has been dominating the charts since even before it was released, spending an unconsecutive seven weeks at number one, has become the UK’s latest million selling track and has become one of this country’s biggest selling singles of ALL TIME.
Mark Ronson, writer and producer of the track, has said of the milestone: “I can’t believe it, it’s insane. It’s definitely an amazing milestone to be in this club with all these massive superstars. On behalf of myself and Bruno, I just want to thank everybody who bought this record and put us in this club.”
Elsewhere in chart news, Ellie Goulding is spending her second week at number one with Fifty Shades of Grey track ‘Love Me Like You Do’. Hozier’s ‘Take Me To Church’ has climbed one spot to number two whilst Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ million selling ‘Uptown Funk’ slides to number three. DJ Fresh and Ella Eyre are this week’s highest new entry with ‘Gravity’ at number four and Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney round off this week’s top five, falling one place.
Following his sweep at last week’s Grammy Awards, Sam Smith’s debut album ‘In The Lonely Hour’ has returned to the top spot for the sixth non-consecutive week.
