Taylor Swift scored her first U.K. No. 1 album Sunday (October 29) as "Red" debuted at the top. Writer-producer Labrinth was also celebrating a first British bestseller, as the grammatically-challenged "Beneath Your Beautiful," featuring Emeli Sandé, opened atop the singles survey.
THE 'RED' ZONE
Swift reached No. 5 in the U.K. in 2009 with her chart debut "Fearless," peaking one place below that with the 2010 follow-up "Fearless." The new album follows the top ten success of "We Are Never Getting Back Together Ever," which peaked at No. 4 four weeks ago and is still in the top ten, drifting 7-9 this week. Scottish singer-songwriter Sandé enjoyed another banner week, with the deluxe version of her chart-topping album "Our Version Of Events" climbing 9-2, as she notched not one but two new top ten guest appearances on the singles list, at No. 1 with Labrinth and No. 10 with her cameo on north London artist and Virgin labelmate Naughty Boy's "Wonder."
