Adele's "Skyfall" missed out on the U.K. No. 1 position by a substantial 43,000 units when the Official Charts Company confirmed the end-of-week results on Sunday (14), overtaken by Swedish House Mafia's "Don't You Worry Child"
Adele’s “Skyfall” missed out on the No. 1 UK single after Swedish House Mafia’s “Don’t You Worry Child” featuring John Martin outsold it by a whopping 43K. On the British album charts Mumford & Sons’ “Babel” album returned to the No. 1 spot ahead of Ellie Goulding’s “Halcyon” in a new top ten with no fewer than three(!) albums featuring Electric Light Orchestra co-founder Jeff Lynne(!).
Next week's Billboard 200 albums chart is going to be a busy one, thanks to a bunch of hot new releases that dropped on Sept. 11. The likely leader on the chart will be Dave Matthews Band's "Away From the World" with more than 250,000 copies sold, according to industry sources. And Little Big Town is on the way to its best sales week yet, as its new "Tornado" should blow in with perhaps 110,000 copies.
