The Weeknd Tops U.K. Singles Chart With ‘Blinding Lights’ for Eighth Week

The Weeknd dominates the single chart in the United Kingdom with his latest hit single while his new album ‘After Hours’ rounds up the top 5 in the Albums chart.

AceShowbizThe Weeknd‘s huge hit “Blinding Lights” is at the summit of the U.K. singles chart for an eighth week after topping Friday’s April 17, 2020 Official Charts Company rundown.

The track, which is the biggest selling of 2020 in Britain and has had three separate spells at number one, saw off competition from Saint Jhn‘s “Roses”, which climbs to number two.

Dropping one place to three is Drake‘s “Toosie Slide”, while Dua Lipa has two tracks, “Physical” and “Don’t Start Now”, in the fourth and fifth spots respectively.

She’s also at the top of the albums chart for a second week, with her sophomore record “Future Nostalgia” still at number one, ahead of Lewis Capaldi‘s “Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent”, which is at two almost a year after its original release.

Indie rockers The Strokes‘ sixth studio album “The New Abnormal” is this week’s highest new entry at three, with Tory Lanez‘s “The New Toronto 3” at four, and The Weeknd’s “After Hours” completing the top five.
