Sabrina Carpenter’s ‘Please Please Please’ Tops U.K. Chart for Second Week, Chappell Roan Secures First Top 10 Single

Sabrina Carpenter’s hit single “Please Please Please” (via Island) holds strong at the top of the Official UK Singles Chart for the second consecutive week, logging an impressive 8.6 million streams and remaining the most-streamed song in the country.

The track, produced by Jack Antonoff, is the second single from Carpenter’s sixth studio LP, Short ‘n’ Sweet, which was released June 6, following her previous U.K. No. 1 hit with “Espresso.”

Following her record-breaking ascent last week, Carpenter has again set a new milestone, becoming the youngest female artist to achieve two consecutive weeks at No. 1 and No. 2, with “Espresso” holding steady at No. 2. This surpasses Ariana Grande’s previous record.

Another rising star, indie-pop sensation Chappell Roan, makes her debut in the U.K. top 10 with “Good Luck, Babe!” landing at No. 7.

Additionally, two more singles from her debut album, The Rise and Fall of a Midwest Princess, have entered the Top 40: “HOT TO GO!” at No. 33 and “Red Wine Supernova” at No. 40.

U.S. viral sensation Tommy Richman secures his second U.K. top 40 single with “DEVIL IS A LIE,” debuting at No. 21. Coldplay’s latest single, “feelslikeimfallinginlove,” produced by Max Martin, is this week’s highest new entry at No. 25, marking the band’s 28th U.K. top 40 hit. Chris Martin and Co. made history at Glastonbury Festival on Saturday by becoming the first band to headline the event for a fifth time, besting the Cure’s old mark of four.

Meanwhile, Charli XCX continues to climb the charts with “girl, so confusing,” entering at No. 28, boosted by a viral remix featuring Lorde. This gives Charli her 17th U.K. top 40 hit and Lorde her fifth. Jordan Adetunji’s “KEHLANI” becomes the Belfast alt-hip-hop star’s first-ever Top 40 entry, landing at No. 29.

Post Malone and Blake Shelton’s collaboration “Pour Me A Drink” debuts at No. 34, marking Posty’s 23rd U.K. top 40 single and Shelton’s first.

Gracie Abrams, fresh off her first U.K. No. 1 album, adds another accolade with “us..,” her duet featuring Taylor Swift, entering the chart at No. 37.

Finally, Ariana Grande’s “the boy is mine” makes a significant leap, climbing 25 places to enter the top 40 at No. 39, following the release of a remix featuring Brandy and Monica. This marks Grande’s 35th U.K. top 40 single.
