James Masterton's Chart Watch UK

You are reading the fascinating weekly guide to the stories behind the hits populating the Official UK Charts. Read this week's column along with the complete 25-year archive, a resource of over 1300 articles covering a quarter of a century of popular music history.

A becalmed Top 10, but just below some very exciting things are happening. Jess Glynne is back for real, and Childish Gambino guns down a gospel choir whilst escaping just being known as that bloke on a Leona Lewis hit.

I won't sugar-coat this. Nothing moves at the top end of the singles chart, although that does mean Calvin Harris gets to do something he's not managed in seven years. Post Malone released a new album this week and everyone with a Spotify login went utterly nuts for it. But your mum only cares about Paloma Faith.

Some fresh blood inside the Top 10 makes for a busy chart week, even if it turns out nothing can overhaul the Number One which accelerates into the distance. Ariana goes blonde, Anne-Marie channels Ed and sadly Avicii passes away.
