Comment: Half of this lot owe their position in part to the Grammys. Adele, Bieber, Stapleton, The Weeknd, and Taylor Swift all got huge boosts and I think what this proves is that the collapse of record sales has turned the US charts closer to the UK charts, a place where position can be hugely influenced by outside effects. Last week, we saw Coldplay return to the charts, this week? Taylor hasn’t been on the top ten for a month. The Weeknd has been off the top ten as well.
