Singer Sam Ryder has topped the UK album chart with “There’s Nothing But Space, Man!” the official company that monitors sales and compiles the charts announced on its website. The artist’s debut production was released on December 9. Great Britain’s Sam Ryder won second place at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. The forum was held in Turin, and the winner was the Ukrainian group “Orchestra Kalush”. Due to the military actions in the homeland of the performers, it was decided that “Eurovision” in 2023 would be in Liverpool.
In second place in the ranking is the American neo-soul singer Siza with her production “SOS”. This is her second studio album and first in five years. For the first time, the singer has reached such a high position in the British music chart. Her previous album, “Ctrl”, only managed to climb to the 45th position on the chart. The third in the chart is Taylor Swift with “Midnights”. Her album has been on the market since October 21. In the fourth position is Michael Bublé with the festive “Christmas”, released in 2011. He is followed by the Dutch violinist conductor Andre Rieu and his “Johann Strauss” orchestra with the production “Silver Bells”, which includes classics dedicated to the Nativity of Christ. It is the 13th album by Rio and his orchestra to reach the top 10 in the UK chart.
Christmas tracks have also taken over the UK singles chart. The group “Wam!” is at the top of the chart with the single “Last Christmas” from 1984. The second position is for Mariah Carey with another holiday classic – “All I Want For Christmas Is You” from 1994. It was down a position from last week when it topped the UK singles chart. Third place goes to Ray and 070 Shake with “Escapism,” the only song in the chart’s top five that lacks Christmas motifs. In fourth and fifth place are Ed Sheeran and Elton John, respectively, with “Merry Christmas” – the track is from 2021, followed by Brenda Lee with “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” from 1958.
