‘Uptown Funk’ claims fifth week at number 1

Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’s ‘Uptown Funk’ has claimed its fifth non-consecutive week at number one on the Official Singles Chart.

The song has now tallied the most weeks at the top of the charts since the release of Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ in 2013.

Philip George’s ‘Wish You Were Mine’, which samples Stevie Wonder’s ‘My Cherie Amour’, remains at number two this week, while Hozier’s ‘Take Me to Church’ climbs two places into number three.

Olly Murs and Demi Lovato’s ‘Up’ holds onto its number four position, while Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’ completes the top five, having fallen two spots since last week.

Sia is a new entry with ‘Elastic Heart’, entering at number 13. The track features on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack, while the video, which stars Shia LaBeouf and Maddie Ziegler, was released earlier this month.

Swedish DJ and producer Avicii wins his ninth UK top 40 single this week with ‘The Nights’, which enters at number 16.

Meanwhile, Jeremih’s ‘Don’t Tell ‘Em’, which features YG, re-enters the top 40 at number 32, and Lilly Wood and Robin Schulz’s ‘Prayer in C’ is another re-entry at number 38.
