Brit Sweep: November 26, 2016...


Let's head across the Atlantic one more time to check out the notable singles and albums reaching the charts in the UK this week...

On the British singles chart, Clean Bandit spends a third week on top with "Rockabye". There are two songs entering the top-40, and both are non-radio-promoted album tracks from the just-released album from The Weeknd: "I Feel It Coming" at #18 and "Party Monster" at #33. Neither is available to hear on YouTube as yet...

The sixth track from British R&B/pop singer Craig David's stellar "comeback" album to reach the chart is the official BBC Children In Need charity single, "All We Needed", which enters at #42. "When The Bassline Drops" got to #10...

A performance I've been raving about for months now, "Human" from British blues-rock singer Rag N' Bone Man, finally makes the singles chart in his homeland at #77. He's already topped the chart in Germany and went top ten in France...


Bruno Mars barrels in at #79 with "Chunky", from his 24K Magic album. The title track so far has gotten as high as #5 and stands at #7 this week...

Bruno Mars gets the "show" position at #3 with his 24K Magic set. It's his third release, the other two did reach the top of the albums chart in this country...


Reggae veterans UB40 (well, under the UB40 name but technically departed members Ali Campbell, Astro, and Mickey Virtue) land at #17 with Unplugged. The act has topped the albums chart twice, with Labour Of Love in 1983 and Promises and Lies a decade later...


The late great Donna Summer's Ultimate Collection dances in at #30. A non-American release, there's a 3-CD set available with rarities...
