Lily Allen Earns Third # 1 Single On UK Top 40, Robbie Williams Scores UK’s 1000th # 1 Album!


Pop chanteuse Lily Allen’s comeback train seems to be on the right track y’all!

Mizz Allen surges all the way up to the top of the Official UK Top 40 Singles Chart this week with her cover of Keane’s ‘Somewhere Only We Know‘, featured on John Lewis’ Christmas TV ad campaign. The single becomes Allen’s third chart-topper in the UK, following her début smash ‘Smile‘ in 2006 and ‘The Fear‘ in 2008.

Allen beat out Bastille in the closest chart battle of the year so far – ‘Somewhere‘ surpassed Bastille’s ‘Of The Night‘ by a mere 660 units this week to hit # 1.

Allen simultaneously notches another top 10 single this week as ‘Hard Out Here‘ – her first new single since 2009 – arrives at # 9, coincidentally becoming her 9th top 10 hit in the UK! She missed out on the top 10 earlier this year when ‘True Love‘  – her duet with Pink – peaked at # 16.

Over at the top 40 albums chart, Pop titan Robbie Williams creates history as ‘Swings Both Ways‘ becomes the UK’s 1000th # 1 album – dating back to Frank Sinatra’s ‘Songs For Swingin’ Lovers‘ which topped the charts in 1956. Robbie now boasts of 11 solo # 1 albums in the UK, thus tying him with King Elvis Presley himself.
