Sabrina Carpenter’s ‘Espresso’ Shoots to U.K. No. 1

Sabrina Carpenter’s “Espresso” (via Island) is just too hot, as it starts its first stint at No. 1 in the U.K.

The U.S. singer and actor’s hit lifts 5-1 in its third week on the Official U.K. Singles Chart, for her first leader.

The best-seller at the midweek point, “Espresso” clocked up a market-leading 8.8 million streams, and completed nail-biting finish to bump Taylor Swift’s former leader “Fortnight” featuring Post Malone by fewer than 500 combined units, the Official Charts Company reports.

“Espresso” is Carpenter’s first top 10 and fourth U.K. top 40 single after “Nonsense” (No. 32 peak), “Skin” (No. 28) and “feather” (No. 19).

Hozier’s former No. 1 “Too Sweet” (Island) dips 2-3, to complete the podium on the latest chart, published Friday, May 3.

Shaboozey bags his first U.K. 10 single with “A Bar Song (Tipsy)” (American Dogwood/Empire), the hip-hop-country number which rises 16-6.

Taylor Swift bags another U.K. top 10 single — her 29th in her career — with “I Can Do It With A Broken Heart,” the fourth single from The Tortured Poets Department to crack the top 10 in two weeks. “Broken Heart” is new at No. 8, following “Fortnight,” “The Tortured Poets Department” (No. 3 peak) and “Down Bad” (No. 4). “I Can Do It With A Broken Heart” is the highest debut on the latest Official U.K. Singles Chart.

The only other debutant in the top 40 is Virginia, U.S. singer and rapper Tommy Richman, with “Million Dollar Baby” (ISO Supremacy/Pulse). The viral cut is new at No. 31, for Richman’s first entry on the Official Singles Chart.

Finally, two classic Amy Winehouse songs return to the top 40, powered by Sam Taylor-Johnson’s biopic, Back to Black. The late singer’s cover of the Zutons’ “Valerie” (with producer Mark Ronson, via Columbia) returns at No. 38 and “Back to Black” (lsland) reenters at No. 39.
