Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ Is Back at the Top of Charts


Taylor Swift has started 2015 as she ended 2014 – on top of the U.S. charts.

The pop star’s 1989 has landed an eighth non-consecutive week as the Billboard 200 chart’s number one album.

It has become her longest-running chart-topper since her second album, Fearless, spent 13 weeks on top in 2008 and 2009.

More than 244,000 fans snapped up a copy of 1989 in the first week of 2015 – 160,000 copies more than second-placed Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint.

Ed Sheeran’s X returns to the top three at three, while fellow Brit Sam Smith’s In the Lonely Hour rises a spot to four and the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack jumps back into the top five at five.

Meanwhile, Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson have prevented Swift from starting off the new year with a chart double – their “Uptown Funk” hit topples her “Blank Space” – and ends a 19-week girl power run at the top of America’s Billboard Hot 100.

“Uptown Funk” is Ronson’s first U.S. number one as an artist, and Mars’ sixth Hot 100 chart-topper.

“Blank Space” falls a spot to two, while Hozier’s “Take Me to Church” remains at three. Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” returns to the top five at four, and Meghan Trainor’s “Lips Are Movin” rounds out the countdown’s top flight.
