It’s the first time any Swift song has led the Official U.K. Singles Chart for an entire month.
“Anti-Hero,” which enjoys a lift from a new cut by Bleachers, the solo project of Midnights producer Jack Antonoff, remains the most-streamed song of the week in the U.K., according to the Official Charts Company.
“Anti-Hero” has some competition. Top 10 releases from Oliver Tree & Robin Schulz (“Miss You,” up 4-3 via Atlantic), Meghan Trainor (“Made You Look” up 8-4 via Epic), and Venbee & goddard (“Messy In Heaven” up 9-5 via Columbia) are all on the climb.
Two tracks bounce back into the latest top 10: Anne-Marie & Aitch’s “Psycho” (Atlantic), up 14-7, while Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up” (Def Jam), finds new energy following the wide release of the Marvel film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. It’s up 12-9.
Nigerian artist Rema bags his first top 10 appearance on the Official Singles Chart, published Nov. 18, with “Calm Down” (via Mavin), up 16-10. The Afrobeats star earns his new career high following the release of a remix featuring Selena Gomez.
Also enjoying new peaks are rapper K-Trap’s “Warm” (up 18-17 via Thousand8), Dermot Kennedy’s “Kiss Me” (up 25-21 via Island) and Joel Corry & Tom Grennan’s “Lionheart (Fearless)” (up 30-25 via Atlantic).
The highest new entry this week belongs to Bugzy Malone & TeeDee with “Out of Nowhere” (Bsomebody), new at No. 18; while Brit Award-winning grime star Stormzy scores his 27th U.K. top 40 single with “Firebabe” (0207/Merky), new at No. 26; and Burna Boy’s starts at No. 31 with “Alone” (Def Jam/Hollywood/Roc Nation), the Afrobeats artist’s ninth top 40 appearance.
The festival season is just around the corner, and Mariah Carey’s evergreen hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You” (Columbia) has arrived like clockwork, lifting 36-36 on the Official U.K. Singles Chart.
Finally, following his Nov. 5 induction into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, Eminem’s 2005 hit “Mockingbird” (Interscope) reenters the chart. The track, which originally peaked at No. 4, returns at No. 38.
