LONDON, July 20 Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran
topped the British album chart for a fourth consecutive week on
Sunday, setting a record for the longest run in the top spot
this year, the Official Charts Company said.
British sales of Sheeran's second full-length album "X"
reached 367,000 copies as he held off the challenge of
second-placed new entry "World Peace is None of Your Business"
The rest of the album chart was unchanged from last week
with Dolly Parton in third with "Blue Smoke - The Best Of", Sam
Smith's "In the Lonely Hour" in fourth and "Wanted on Voyage" by
George Ezra at number five.
British band "Rixton" claimed a debut number one single with
"Me and my Broken Heart" which pushed last week's chart-topper
"It's My Birthday" by will.i.am into third place. "Problem" by
Ariana Grande was unmoved at number two.
Ella Henderson "Ghost" slipped once place into fourth and
George Ezra's "Budapest" completed the top five.
