Miami DJ-producer-artist DJ Khaled enters the U.K. singles chart at No. 1 with “I’m The One” (Black Butter/We The Best), which features Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance The Rapper and Lil Wayne. Ed Sheeran holds off Gorillaz’ Humanz (Parlophone/Warner Music) to start a ninth week atop the album chart with ÷ (Asylum/Warner).
“I’m The One” had 5.1 million streams and 23,000 download sales, according to the Official Charts Company, and is easily Khaled’s most successful U.K. single. His previous best was a No. 25 showing last year with “For Free,” featuring Drake.
“Symphony” (Atlantic/Warner Music) by Clean Bandit featuring Zara Larsson, which debuted at No.1 last week, falls to No. 2, and Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” 2-3. Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi jumps 22-4 with “Despacito” (Interscope/Universal), helped by a new mix featuring Bieber, who thus appears on two of the week’s top four. Sheeran’s “Galway Girl” is down 3-5.
The ÷ album now represents Sheeran’s longest unbroken run at the U.K. album summit, moving ahead of the eight weeks logged by x in 2011 as part of its total of 13. That album climbs back 10-8 this week. The Gorillaz album becomes their fourth top ten title in the territory, while Rag ‘n’ Bone Man’s Human (Best Laid Plans/Columbia/Sony Music) stays at No. 3 again.
Reunited pop band Steps fall 2-4 with Tears on the Dancefloor (Steps Music), while Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. (Interscope/Universal) falls 4-5. There are new entries for The Cranberries’ Something Else (BMG), featuring new versions of songs from their catalog and three new tracks, at No. 18, and for Mark Lanegan’s Gargoyle(Heavenly) at No. 22.
